Nutrition plays a vital role in backcountry activities. Nutrition is required for both common man and athletes (Sportsperson or trekkers, hikers, Mountaineers, skiers, rock climbers, cyclist etc.)
As their workload is high hence they need added nutrition, supplements and energy drinks to recover their energy and enhance performance. Also, they need to be fit and have a balanced BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)
. The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the amount of energy needed to sustain our body before accounting for any activity or external temperatures (imagine lying in bed). Diversity in body size, shape, and composition means BMR can vary drastically. A 17-year old male weighing 160lbs has a BMR around 1,950 calories while a 25-year old female weighing 125lbs has a BMR around 1,300. Things that increase BMR include genetics, a greater body surface area (tall and skinny), and a low body fat percentage. The occasional male teenager can have a BMR as high as 2,500 calories.
. Activity Levels account for a huge number of calories on NOLS courses. On a big hiking, multi-pitch, or dig-in day, students can burn as many as 10,000 additional calories from activity. Thermoregulation is the body’s ability to maintain a consistent body temperature. Energy in the body (let’s say glucose) is used to do mechanical work (let’s say rock climbing) with only 25% efficiency. A byproduct is heat energy, which warms the body. When the body is too warm it sends blood to the surface of the skin to radiate heat out of the body as well as activates sweat glands to increase evaporative cooling. Conversely, when the body is cold it will divert blood away from the skin’s surface
The food we consume during our physical activities provide 1600 calories per every 1.5 lb (675 gm) Hence there is an average of 1600 calories loss/deficit of calories. This leads to underperforming, low energy, strength and motivation.
The food that we consume must have – 20% of carbohydrates, 25% of fibre, 40% of protein and 15% of good fat. Getting protein and fibre in the field/backcountry nutrition is not possible with regular food. Protein supplements such as plant-based protein powder, fibre, and protein shakes help to regain your muscle, nutrition and calories and help you to enhance your performance, fit, balance nutrition, maintain the weight check, GET RID OF EXCESS BODY FAT
Highly recommended Herbalife products for athletes are
1. Formula 1 shake mix.
2. Personalised protein powder.
3. Afresh energy drink.
4. Active Fibre complex.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Herbalife is committed to setting the standard by which all nutrition companies are measured. We are advancing the science of nutrition through scientific research conducted around the world. Since 2003, we’ve increased our research and development expenditures dramatically to advance the product-development process.
Product integrity, safety and efficacy have always been Herbalife’s top priorities. We invest in new technology and research as part of our commitment to providing innovative, science-based nutrition products. Ingredients used in our products are also found in many foods. Our materials (including botanical ingredients) are globally sourced from reputable suppliers and our products are manufactured in accordance with established quality standards. Product quality is verified at our in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art testing equipment. The Herbalife quality team conducts regular audits and inspections of suppliers and contract manufacturers to ensure compliance.
Herbalife complies with the applicable requirements of all regulatory bodies wherever we do business. In the United States, all of our products comply with and are labelled according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Outside of the United States, we comply with and are regulated by the various ministries of health and food standards agencies where we do business. Through the acquisition of assets at Micelle Laboratories, a California contract manufacturer of food and dietary supplements, we are able to enhance our global product development and supply chain to better support our dedicated independent Associates. It allows us to increase the speed to market for new products while controlling quality along each step of the manufacturing process, from raw ingredients to finished products – part of our ongoing commitment to excellence.
We are currently conducting several clinical studies with major universities around the world in order to benchmark the efficacy of various products. Three clinical studies using our Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix were done: one at UCLA*, United States, one at the University of Ulm, Germany and one at Seoul National University Hospital in Korea. The studies conducted demonstrated that drinking Formula 1 shakes every day as meal replacements is an effective way to manage weight. A clinical study using Niteworks was also conducted at UCLA which concluded that the anaerobic threshold in men between the ages of 50 and 73 increased when drinking Niteworks every night.
* The University of California does not endorse specific products or services as a matter of policy.
