Supporting youth athletes to be your best proyouth nutrition is premium sports nutrition founded on programme of colloborative research and working with a team of leading sports and excersice scientists, applied sciences nutritionist and food technologist containing carefully selected macro and micro nutrients to support youth athletes and active children.
Young athletes and active children have different nutritional needs and body profiles to adults. They need different amounts of protein, carbohydrates and other nutrients. When they are on the go it’s even harder to ensure their body is fuelled with right nutrients to support their active lifestyle.
Large volumes of food pre and post activity may not be functional nor practical. This is why we created proyouth – no empty calories ! No sugar crashes ! Just healthy nutritionally dense snack-on-the go that is suitable for pre-activity energy and post activity recovery
We spent months of research working with a team of leading Applied Sports and Exercise Scientists, Life Science Practitioners and Nutritional experts.
Our Product formulation is underpinned by:
• Scientific evidence of the nutritional needs of youth athletes
• Identifying key macro/micronutrients essential for a young athlete’s pre and post workout
• How each of these nutrients correlate with each other for maximum effect
• Aiding nutrient absorption in a young athlete’s body
• How the ingredients will support the gut microbiome stability of a young person
"Research shows that increasing glycogen stores will enhance exercise performance and yet young athletes have been shown to store less glycogen than adults, resulting in the early onset of fatigue."
• Have different body profiles to adults – they need different levels of nutrients
• Have a less mature microbiome causing poor nutrient absorption
• Are more prone to injury due to a still developing body and growth spurts
• Fussy taste palate which could result in nutrient deficiencies
• Many mass market protein bars have high levels of polyols which isn’t recognised by the human body – simply not suitable for young athletes
• There is also the risk of adult protein products containing creatine, caffeine and hormone content
that could potentially be harmful for young athlete’s long-term health.
