Top performance is the result of a well balanced lifestyle and diet.
Whatever your goal, if your training programme and nutrition are

not matched, any success you do achieve will be short lived.

                    Besides a training programme tailored to your precise needs, nutrition more than
                    anything else plays a crucial role in determining your levels of success. Different levels
                    of physical exertion make different demands on your diet and Multipower can help
                    match those needs.

Supplements aid performance by supporting your body’s needs when access to regular food

is limited or the content is undeterminable. When you need increased amounts of protein for
building muscle for example, it can be difficult to take in the correct levels required.

When you need to recover quickly your body will benefit from rich sources of amino acids,
vitamins and minerals. Some key nutrients are depleted rapidly by the body, such as glycogen
and need replacing as soon as possible. Multipower has developed nutrients for every phase
of training to assist the body; before, during and after.

                                    Exercise burns calories and helps tone and shape your figure.
                                    While you are exercising the body needs energy. If energy levels
                                    are reduced because of dieting, the body will find the energy it
                                    needs by burning up your toned muscle - not fat, as many might
                                    think. This weight loss must not be confused with fat loss. This is to
                                    be avoided at all costs, so it is important to provide energy pre workout
                                    and to eat more proteins after working out and at meal times. Protein
                                    breaks down in the body slower than carbohydrates and thus keeps
                                    you fuller for longer.
                                    ...helps the energy production in the cell by transporting fatty acids
                                    to places where they are used and metabolised thereby contributing
                                    to the fat burning process during exercise. It also helps improve
                                    muscle recovery after exercise. It may also help to maintain healthy
                                    blood cholesterol and plasma lipid levels in the elderly therefore
