FOOD VS. SUPPLEMENTS

Under pressure from industry and pharmaco onslaught of the latest and supposedly best products, we are often in a dilemma whether we need to strengthen some of its food supplements that are offered to us. Clients often ask a questions, should they need to take supplement and which one. In this article we will deal with supplementation for recreational athletes and fitness enthusiasts, and their replacement through diet.

The most frequently mentioned supplements are: protein, creatine, L-carnitine, caffeine, glutamine, leucine, calcium, coenzyme Q10, iron, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil), vitamins (A, B1, B2, B5, B12, C, D, E, K), zinc …

We will describe their role individually and through the replacement foods:

Protein or whey is obtained by conversion of the milk into cheese. Whey proteins have the highest bioavailability (most effectively come to the parts of the body where they are needed). The amino acid composition of whey proteins is the most valuable in the sense that contain the highest branched chain amino acid (BCAA), as well as all of the essential amino acids. Whey is the richest source of BCAA (vitamins) that are metabolized in the muscle, and the most important in periods of training, but also in the recovery period. 3 x 55 g scoops = 9 chicken legs.

Creatine is a substance naturally produced by our body. The body produces about 2 g of creatine per day. The role is to promote the restoration of ATP (the main energy for working muscles), which means that his taking a prolonged time work. Creatine has in the red meat and fish.

L-carnitine is the best known role in the transfer of fatty acids across the cell membrane to the mitochondria where the fatty acid burning and used as an energy source. L-Carnitine helps to turn fat into energy. L-carnitine in the body is present in sufficient quantities, and entered into the body through food of animal origin.

Caffeine we have more processed in a given link CAFFEINE . 5 x 200 g in tablets = 13 espressos.

Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid, meaning that it is an organism capable of its own. Plays an important role in the metabolism, in the production of ammonia in the kidneys, the reproduction of glucose by the liver. 6 x 500 g in tablets = 88 raw leaves of spinach

Calcium by far is the most important role is in building bones (firmness) and teeth, especially in the course of growing up. Bone strength is very important in strength training and high muscle mass. 3 x 500 g tablets = 2.2 liters of milk

Omega-3 fatty acids must be supplied in the diet, because they are not producing organism. They are a major component of cell membranes, are essential for cell regeneration and reproduction, and hormones, which trigger all functions in the body, can not be produced without them. The richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fish, especially in cold seas and flaxseed oil.

Magnesium heart problems, headaches, high blood pressure, allergies, muscle tension, diabetes – all of these diseases are associated with a lack of magnesium. 1 x 250 mg in tablets = 32 raw of leaves spinach.

Iron is also an important part of the hemoglobin molecules which is located in red blood cells. In fact, if there is no iron, the bone marrow can not produce this, for the life of a very important substance, which carry oxygen to the farthest parts of the body. 1 x 15 g in the tablets = 3 blocks of Tofu (soy cheese).

Zinc is essential for maintaining a strong immune system, the body and stimulates the creation of white blood cells in the bone marrow. Eggs, Seafood, Crabs.

CoQ10 participates in the creation of energy in every cell of our body. It acts as a catalyst in the process of converting food into energy, which occurs in the mitochondria of cells. Lack of coenzyme Q10 can contribute poor diet, stress, infections, chronic disease, and certain medicines. 3 x 30 mg capsules = 100 grain berries.

Vitamins: A carrot, B1 lettuce, B2 Mushrooms, B5 Avocado, B12 Salmon, C (cabbage, pomegranate, pepper, lemon), D Shells, E Kivi, K Cabbage.

Ensure that the classical food satisfy all the daily required amounts of the respective supplements. If you need to complement the nutrition supplementation, which is sold in stores in the form of pills, ampoules, powder, consult your trainer or some expert. Be careful and remember this text, so as not to leave half salary in the store!

HRANA KOJA ZAMENJUJE SUPLEMENTE

Pod pritiskom farmako industrije i naletom najnovijih i navodno najboljih preparata, često smo u dilemi da li trebamo da svoju ishranu pojačamo nekim suplementima koji nam se nude. Klijenti često postavljaju pitanja da li treba da uzimaju i koji suplement. U ovom članku bavićemo se suplementacijom, za rekreativne sportiste i zaljubljenike u fitnes, i njihovom zamenom kroz ishranu.

Najčešće pominjani suplementi su: protein, kreatin, L-karnitin, kofein, glutamin, leucin, kalcijum, koenzim Q10, gvožđe, magnezijum, omega-3 masne kiseline (riblje ulje), vitamini (A, B1, B2, B5, B12, C, D, E, K), cink…

Opisaćemo njihovu ulogu pojedinačno i zamenu kroz namirnice:

Protein-Whey ili surutka se dobija pretvaranjem mleka u sir. Proteini surutke imaju najveću biološku raspoloživost (najefikasnije dolaze do delova organizma gde su potrebni). Aminokiselinski sastav proteina surutke je najvredniji u smislu da sadrže najviše amino kiselina razgranatog lanca (bcaa), kao i sve esencijalne amino kiseline. Surutka je najbogatiji izvor BCAA (vitamini) koje se metabolišu u mišićima, te su najvažnije i u periodima treninga, ali i u periodu oporavka. 3 x 55g merice = 9 pilećih bataka.

Kreatin je supstanca koju prirodno proizvodi naše telo. Telo stvara oko 2 g kreatina dnevno. Uloga je da pospešuje obnovu ATP ( energija glavna za rad mišića ), što znači da bi se njegovim uzimanjem produžavalo vreme rada. Kreatina ima u crvenom mesu i ribi.

L- karnitin-najpoznatija uloga je u prenosu masnih kiselina kroz staničnu membranu do mitohondrija gde se masne kiseline sagorevaju i koriste kao izvor energije. L-karnitin pomaže mastima da se pretvore u energiju. L-karnitin je u organizmu prisutan u dovoljnim količinama, a unosi se u organizam kroz hranu životinjskog porekla.

Kofein smo opširnije obradili u datom linku KOFEIN. 5 x 200g u tabletama = 13 espreso kafa.

Glutamin je neesencijalna aminokiselina, što znači da ju je organizam sposoban sam proizvesti. Igra važnu ulogu u metabolizmu, u proizvodnji amonijaka u bubrezima, reprodukciji glukoze u jetri. 6 x 500g u tabletama = 88 svežnja listova spanaća

Kalcijum-ubedljivo najbitnija uloga je u izgradnji kostiju (čvrstina) i zuba, naročito u toku odrastanja. Čvrstina kostiju je jako bitna kod treninga snage i velike mišićne mase. 3 x 500g u tabletama = 2.2 litra mleka

Omega-3 masne kiseline se moraju unositi u organizam hranom, jer ih organizam sam ne proizvodi. One su glavni sastojak ćelijske membrane, neophodne su za ćelijsku regeneraciju i reprodukciju, a hormoni, koji pokreću sve funkcije u organizmu, ne mogu da se proizvedu bez njih. Najbogatiji izvori omega 3 masnih kiselina su: riba, naročito iz hladnih mora i ulje lanenog semena.

Magnezijum-srčani problemi, glavobolje, visok pritisak, alergije, napetost mišica, dijabetes – sve ove bolesti su povezane sa nedostatkom magnezijuma. 1 x 250mg u tabletama = 32 svežnja listova spanaća.

Gvožđe je važan deo hemoglobinskog molekula koji se nalazi u crvenim ćelijama krvi. U stvari, ako nema gvožđa, koštana srž ne može da stvara ovu, za život vrlo važnu supstancu, koja raznosi kiseonik u najudaljenije delove tela. 1 x 15g u tabeltama = parče TOFU-a ( sir od soje ).

Cink je veoma bitan za održavanje jakog imuniteta, i u organizmu podstiče stvaranje belih krvnih zrnaca u koštanoj srži. Jaja, Morski plodovi, Rakovi.

Koenzim Q10  CoQ10 učestvuje u stvaranju energije u svakoj stanici našeg organizma. Deluje kao katalizator u procesu pretvaranja hrane u energiju, koji se događa u mitohondrijama stanica. Nedostatku Koenzima q10 može doprineti loša ishrana, stres, infekcije, hronične bolesti i neki lekovi. 3 x 30mg u kapsulama = 100 zrna ribizle.

Vitamini: A-Šargarepa, B1-Zelena Salata, B2-Pečurke, B5-Avokado, B12-Losos, C-(kupus, šipak, paprika, limun), D-Školjke, E-Kivi, K-Kupus.

Potrudite se da kroz klasičnu ishranu zadovoljite sve dnevne potrebne količine navedenih suplemenata. Ukoliko imate potrebu da ishranu dopunjujete suplementacijom, koja se prodaje u radnjama u vidu tableta, ampula, prahova, konsultujte se sa vašim trenerom ili nekim stručnjakom. Pri tome pazite i setite se ovog teksta kako ne bi ostavili pola plate u radnji!
