I International Symposium of Nutritional Supplements for Sport & Health
The objective of this Symposium is to show professionals in the world of sports the latest scientific research and the practical uses of current sports supplements in different sports disciplines: team sports, strength and endurance. Non-doping nutritional ergogenic aids constitute a wide and differentiated range of foods, the main function of which is to supplement the diet to optimize nutrition in order to promote health and maximize training results in athletes. Nutritional supplements such as protein concentrates, amino acids or their derivatives and carbohydrates, represent valid and legitimate alternatives to improve the composition of diets. Dietary supplements are currently marketed in the form of extracts, concentrates, tablets, capsules, soft gels, gel caps, gummies, liquids, or powders. During the last fifteen years, sales of supplements in the world market have seen an unprecedented increase. This has encouraged a great flood of new partners to enter the market with products that promise to lose weight, gain muscle mass or simply promise to be the elixir of health and vitality. Unfortunately, most of them do not have enough scientific evidence to back them up. Since Crown Sport Nutrition was born, our commitment and main axis has been based on science. That is why we organize this symposium and we invite you to attend (For Free) to the I International Symposium of Nutritional Supplements for Sport & Health by Crown Sport Nutrition. The event consists of 5 lectures given by internationally recognized researchers with extensive experience in the area of sports nutrition. The Symposium will be in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish (in different channels). Opening of the event: Trisha Van Dusseldorp, PhD, CISSN, CSCS.
