Ayurveda and Sports Nutrition

Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old medical system of India, states that poor nutrition is the main cause of disease. Ayurveda is also called the ‘science of longevity’ because it offers a complete system to live a long healthy life without medication. It offers programs to rejuvenate the body through diet and nutrition. It offers treatment methods to cure many common diseases such as food allergies, which have few modern treatments.

Sports Nutrition is not described as such, neither in ancient nor in modern nutrition. It is the application of various medical principles to the sports activities, physical exercise and performance endeavours. It is related to the physiological as well as patho-physiological aspects of sports and athletics injuries.
