Kristin Lundanes Jonvik, Researcher, PhD, Norwegian School of Sports Sciences, will attend an event in Amsterdam next week (October 5-7) to present a mini review paper she has co-authored with sports scientists from around the world. To do.
Speaking to NutraIngredients before taking the stage, she said the past decade has seen an explosion of technology, methodologies and innovation in sports science. However, the acceleration of new technologies and commercial solutions, especially in the fields of biotechnology and software/app development, has far outpaced the ability of the scientific community to verify the effectiveness and usefulness of most of these new commercial technologies.
Therefore, the mini-review was created with the intention of highlighting historical and current innovations, with a particular focus on innovations in sports nutrition, which are expected to advance the field in the future.
This review determines the impact of sports nutrition on different athlete groups (e.g., different sports, ethnic groups, and genders) despite the many advances, excitement, and scientific efforts in the field of sports nutrition over the past two decades. The ability to do so is still elusive.
Given their symbiotic relationship, the authors believe that the evolution of sports nutrition and sports science includes all major disciplines (coaching science, environmental physiology, sports biomechanics, etc.), stakeholders, sponsors, and industries of interest. suggests that a more comprehensive approach with input from
The review adds that in recent years, advances in physiology, nutrition, and technology have increasingly been integrated as part of new sports performance innovation strategies, such as Nike’s Breaking2 marathon project. was intended to discover whether a person could run a marathon in less than two hours. This is the first dedicated international research initiative made up of interdisciplinary scientists from academia, elite athletes and strategic industry partners across many sports science and medical disciplines. An innovation in sports nutrition that emerged from this project was the development of carbohydrate “hydrogels”.
According to Lundanes Jonvik, the wearable revolution will improve our ability to monitor a full range of physiological parameters in the field, thereby improving the quality of our dietary regimens and accurately measuring an athlete’s daily energy intake (EI). I am adding that.
“Historically, we have done a number of athlete measurements in the lab, but these technological developments have opened up opportunities to create more field studies. Availability (EA) monitoring: This approach represents an unprecedented opportunity to mitigate many outstanding issues in the field of sports nutrition, such as relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S). “na
Importantly, innovations in wearable technology will allow us to determine individual responses to sports nutrition interventions. For example, finding personal recommendations for carbs and fluids during exercise requires knowledge of the sport’s energy demands, sweat loss, gastrointestinal limitations, personal taste preferences, and all the elements of the event. This also provides the opportunity to track athletes over longer periods of time without the associated human effort and time costs.
A mini-review said: “New research paradigms and techniques have moved from small landmark studies in the 1960s, to sports nutrition research, primarily with the authors themselves doing muscle biopsies, to the use of big data and collaboration between large groups of researchers. It has the potential to revolutionize sports nutrition research.na
“Examples of the latter include a study identifying genes involved in grip strength in more than 195,000 subjects (Willems et al., 2017), or a 6,421 double-labeled water method of age, body composition, and total expenditures. , and a survey of the effects of gender.Participants from 29 countries (Pontzer et al., 2021).The field of sports nutrition employs such collaborative work in combination with the application of newly established techniques. I have an opportunity.”na
Lundanes Jonvik will be on Day 1 of the 3-day Sports & Active Nutrition Summit in Amsterdam next week.
