Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The practice of sports induces a situation of temporary stress in the body associated with an increase in reactive species. Moderate and vigorous physical exercise is considered an essential component of a healthy lifestyle that leads the body to adapt to stress associated with sports; however, when exercise is exhaustive, it induces oxidative stress, inflammation, and muscle damage. Correct nutrition, rich in bioactive compounds, offers favorable outcomes to lessen the deleterious responses to this stress situation, which impacts the adaptation to training and the risk of injury prevention. Specifically, polyphenols contain compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity that help to prevent the potential negative effects of reactive species. Correct nutrition for athletes is vital for their training and performance and for all to improve their fitness and health generally.
