Supplements are important because they help to give the body what we cannot get from food. Particularly, sports supplements can help us to recover faster from our workouts and improve performance.
Alp Nutrition is a concentrated liquid nutritional supplement from Germany with product ingredients organically grown and harvested in the Swiss Alps. Dr. Oliver Schnorr, managing director of Alp Nutrition, was working with athletes of the German Olympic team where he managed their nutrition and prescribed supplements to optimise performance and improve recovery after high intensity training.
Some athletes asked for liquid products because they got tired of swallowing tablets and capsules. Also, the body better absorbs liquid supplements. That was how the idea of Alp Nutrition came about.
What is unique in Alp Nutrition is their unique alpine herbal extract Alp Phyto which has organically grown lemon thyme, melissa, chamomile, mallow, stinging nettle, edelweiss and pineapple sage. Their products are developed in cooperation with scientists, physicians and elite athletes.
They have five products – Alp Beauty (to improve skin elasticity and reduce signs of aging), Alp Protect (to improve mental performance and brain health), Alp Curcumin (to improve immunity and immune response to fight against inflammation), Alp Carnitin (to increase endurance and improve fat metabolism), and Alp Sport (a multi-vitamin drink for competitive athletes to boost performance, recovery and immune system).
Alp Sport contains vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, seven vitamins of the B-complex, coenzyme Q10, vitamin E and selenium. The micronutrient complex in the Alp Sport supports energy metabolism, electrolyte balance, immune system and protects the body from cellular damage caused by free oxygen radicals. It also helps to lower fatigue after intensive training. This can be used to replace the daily multi-vitamins in a pill.
The Alp Carnitin contains L-carnitine to help support fat metabolism and contribute to reduction in fat loss. It has an orange taste to it and to be taken 30 minutes before exercise.
For athletes, the Alp Sport, Alp Carnitin and Alp Curcumin are the ones that could help the most. It doesn’t taste bad and you can drink it pure or mix it into a smoothie or protein shake!
Alp Nutrition is selling at $128-$188 for 1 month’s supply (28 vials) at www.simplyactive.com.sg.
