The World of Sports Nutrition

Advancements in medicine and an increase in capitalism in the world as well as other factors all contributed to the development of the field of sports nutrition.As scientists learned more and more about our bodies and the optimum level of strength and physical fitness they can harbor, businessmen jumped the gun and manufactured products and services that actually help athletes meet these optimum levels. The media joined in the ruckus and published materials leading to the promotion of both the scientific and the commercial side of the field.Sports nutrition has been changing through the years around the world. It’s not just that the topics are different – the emphasis and approach have also changed.Peak Performance, a sports magazine carried an article on dehydration in runners on October 1990, its maiden issue. This article compared the benefits of plain water with those of dilute glucose solutions, which are more isotonic and therefore absorbed more rapidly.Today, go into almost any supermarket, convenience stores and even school cafeterias and you’ll find a ready supply of sports drinks aimed at maintaining hydration just like glucose solutions.The difference is that by using soluble long-chain glucose polymers instead of simple glucose, it’s now possible to create an isotonic drink that hydrates and also supplies significant amounts of carbohydrate to working muscles. And, the good thing is, sports drinks also taste better.More than 10 years ago, it was made public that muscle damage brought about by free-radicals may be reduced by having supplements of antioxidant vitamins A; C and E. Years after, antioxidant supplementation became a norm in the world of sports nutrition.Now, researchers are also beginning to understand that muscle damage is a more complex subject. It is difficult to assess free radical damage in athletes and it has been found out those large amounts of antioxidant nutrients may actually cause cellular damage and impair performance.The carb loading technique has been widely used over the years by athletes all over the world. A carbohydrate-rich diet is important in maintaining muscle glycogen stores thus ensuring high endurance levels.However, in the 1990′s it became clear that the glycemic index and release rate of different carbohydrates had important influence on when they should best be consumed in relation to physical activity.The relationship of carbohydrates and proteins were also discovered namely that carbohydrates promote protein-sparing in the body. It was also discovered recently that consuming carbohydrates before and during prolonged bouts of strenuous exercise can help protect the immune system.One of the most exciting recent developments in sports nutrition has been the rise of creatine supplementation. The use of creatine is now very common. Creatine renews the muscles essential energy source, ATP or adenosine triphosphate. Increased levels in muscles optimizes energy turnover meaning you’ll more energy for high power exercise and faster recovery during and after workouts. Creatine also increases the athlete’s maximum effort, delays fatigue and therefore prolongs endurance.New wisdom and therefore new products have definitely enabled athletes to fuel themselves better, work harder, train longer and recover more rapidly. However, as in any kind of innovation there will always be downsides.Nutritional supplements available to most athletes in the 80′s were very straightforward. Some athletes took drugs but the boundaries between nutritional supplements and drugs clear. Today, the race to find new formulas to boost performance has resulted to the availability of sports nutrition supplements which do not really occur naturally. The result is that the distinction between a nutrient and a performance-enhancing substance has become increasingly blurred.Some of these supplements contain ingredients that can cause athletes to violate the rules and regulations governing their sport because of unintentional contamination by other, ‘exotic’, substances present in the supplement manufacturing environment.More developments will be created in the world of sports nutrition and these will definitely spawn ethical questions. “Nutrigenomics”-the relationship between genetics and nutrition-will be more researched upon.As scientists become more skilled at discovering the processes of our genes, it will be possible that rather than adopting a general approach for sports nutrition, athletes around the world will be genetically tested to help them determine precise individual requirements for optimum health.The next years will predictably be more exciting for the world of sports nutrition.

Mental Health, Medication & the Power of Talk (Part 3)

Understanding Your Choices… is the key to finding solutionsDespite the fact that there are numerous mental health professionals today, these people are still failing to get the care that they need. This situation is largely a result of failing to properly educate the public.”So many of us are walking around with mental-emotional problems today and we are not receiving the care we need and deserve. In some cases, it is a matter of being unaware that there is a problem. These individuals may have been depressed or anxious for so long that they have come to believe that their feelings of sadness or fear are natural. They may actually believe that happiness and feelings of comfortable safeness are fantasy states that exist only in books of fiction. Unaware of how their depression or anxiety can negatively impact potential relationships with others, they may view their feelings of loneliness as normal.In most cases, however, people are aware that they have mental-emotional concerns. Yet, despite the fact that there are numerous mental health professionals today, these people are still failing to get the care that they need. This situation is largely a result of failing to properly educate the public.Early in the 20th century, governments found they could influence health behaviour with public service announcements (PSA). Over the ensuing decades, citizens have learned that good physical health lays in getting vaccinations, mammograms and brushing teeth regularly. The focus of these announcements has, however, traditionally been upon physical ailments and physical treatments. Even when addressing problems that are psychological in origin, such as alcohol or tobacco dependence, PSAs focused on the social or physical health consequences and solutions. It is only in the last decade or so that psychological issues are being presented to and discussed with the public as psychological issues.Unfortunately, the entrance of the pharmaceutical industry into the “information” industry provides the public with a very one-sided approach to health care. Given that their business is selling drugs, it is understandable that they are creating commercials telling the public that some new drug will solve all of their problems. “Are you depressed? Well, do we have a great new drug for you!” “Want to quit smoking? Ask your physician about our drug.” This last makes tremendous sense… substituting one drug dependency for another. Not!Failure to educate the public isn’t restricted to the government or pharmaceutical industry. The media tends to use the terms “psychologist” and “psychiatrist” interchangeably. If you were to ask the average person, they’d tell you that they are the same. Most people are unaware that a psychotherapist is someone who has undergone extensive education in dealing with mental-emotional problems. A psychotherapist’s approach is talk therapy and, if medication is called for, it usually plays a supplementary role to psychotherapy. A psychiatrist, on the other hand, is someone who spends an extensive period of time becoming a physician. A psychiatrist’s approach is to administer drugs. Talk therapy, if used, mostly focuses on insuring compliance with the drug treatment.If the mis-education of the public wasn’t sufficiently problematic, healthcare insurance companies have been doing their best to make their contribution. Health insurance has typically failed to cover mental health. Although there are signs that this might be changing, it is still far easier to get drugs to treat the symptoms of your depression than it is to see someone who can actually help resolve the underlying problem rather than the symptoms. The message sent is that there is no cure. The only viable option is a lifetime of drug treatment.If society wants to seriously address the increasing amount of mental-emotional health problems, the public will need to be properly educated and access to effective mental healthcare will need to be improved.
