Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increasing commercialization of sport at the elite level has led to greater investment in methods to optimize athletic performance and recovery. It has long been recognized that the nutritional status of an athlete can influence their physiological function and in recent times there has been increasing interest in the potential for nutrition to enhance athletic performance and recovery. Nutritional interventions can be used to increase the availability of fuel for muscular contraction during exercise, provide more rapid replenishment of fuel stores following exercise, improve hydration and/or rehydration, alter protein turnover, improve circulatory function and alter other physiological functions which may benefit sporting performance. This special issue of Nutrients reports on the latest science related to nutritional strategies to optimize athletic performance and recovery in both elite and recreational athletes.
