OVERSTIM.s sports nutrition: healthy and effective!
Here at OVERSTIM.s, we have over 35 years of experience in healthy and effective sports energy. Our main goal is to effectively meet your energy needs, whatever sport you practise, your level, or your intensity.
Consisting of a team of passionate people, we are a Brittany-based, family-run SME with strong ties to our territory, where we design and make our products.
A decisive factor in well-being and performance - in the same way as a healthy lifestyle and training - sports nutrition must ensure optimal energy regardless of the sport, training level and intensity.
The energy needs for jogging have nothing in common with those required for a marathon, just as those for a short bike run differ sharply from those for mountain biking.
It is therefore important for any athlete, whatever their level, to combine training with good nutrition - namely a nutrition that meets their needs in proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and nutrients!
Nutrition for an athlete is therefore a key element to meet their goals, whatever these may be. Performance is measured in results. Steady energy, no bad patches, easy recovery, easy to digest with no digestive issues, are as much evidence for OVERSTIM.s' reputation.
Choosing OVERSTIM.s sports nutrition means ensuring complete reliability and the best energy output for complete success in your sports goals.
The importance of hydration for athletes
Through perspiration, as well as respiratory exchange, as the body engages in a sports activity it gets dehydrated and undergoes significant physiological stresses, which lead to more than a simple drop in efficiency.
It has been scientifically shown that a dehydration of 2% body weight (1.3 L for a 65 kg athlete, or barely one hour of training), leads to a 20% decrease in physical abilities; in other words, a significant reduction in performance.
Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink, as this is already an advanced sign of dehydration.
Hydration should take place from the very beginning of the sporting activity, by drinking water but, more importantly, consuming nutritional elements (energy, minerals and vitamins) that are essential to the proper functioning of the body to maintain exercise capacity and prevent muscle injury.
Thanks to their composition, OVERSTIM.s HYDRIXIR sports drinks can precisely fulfil the nutritional needs of athletes. Isotonic, completely non-acidic and without preservatives, HYDRIXIR drinks are perfectly well-tolerated, even after many hours engaging in a sporting activity.
How do you achieve proper recovery after a sporting activity?
Repeat muscle strain does not give the muscle time to regenerate and leads to a gradual loss in strength. This loss in strength is all the more pronounced when energy intake during a sporting activity is insufficient or ill-suited, because the muscle then plays the role of fuel station.
After physical exercise, it is essential to adopt the right habits to help the body regenerate and prevent possible muscle injuries.
To compensate for the loss in water, it is necessary to drink after a sporting activity.
The OVERSTIM.s Recovery Drink rehydrates the body, helps eliminate waste (lactic acid, ammonia, urea...) accumulated while exercising and offsets mineral losses (sodium, potassium...).
After physical exercise, it is recommended to consume a snack rich in carbohydrates, proteins and BCAA to promote the reconstitution of energy reserves and muscle regeneration.
Optimal recovery should ideally be done within the metabolic window (30 to 45 minutes after a sporting activity), i.e. within the time frame when the body will make the most of the nutrients to ensure its regeneration.
