Les bienfaits des électrolytes

The benefits of electrolytes


  • Source of electrolytes: During a major effort in endurance sport, we lose potassium through perspiration. Maple syrup is partly composed of potassium, calcium and magnesium, so it fits well into the athlete's diet. These three minerals all work in synergy to help muscle contraction and relaxation.

  • Source of antioxidants: Each 60 ml of maple syrup contains a minimum of 4 mg of polyphenols. These antioxidants help reduce muscle fatigue if consumed before and during training. They can even speed up recovery when consumed afterwards.

  • Maple syrup is a source of zinc to consider. A mineral also participating in the role of antioxidant. A few studies show that zinc improves muscle metabolism and strength development.

  • In addition, 60ml or 29g of maple syrup provides 100% of manganese requirements.

A nice set of vital micro-nutrients to achieve good muscle recovery.
