Quercetin, a plant pigment found in apples, enhances power output, which in turn improves cycling performance, especially for high-intensity rides.
Apples may increase muscle mass, grip strength, and exercise capacity so that you are stronger and faster on the bike.
Apples may increase endurance through fortifying the fibrous composition of muscles, so your legs and lungs become stronger, faster.
One study found that cyclists taking ashwagandha supplements improved their cardiorespiratory endurance, both with aerobic capacity and time to exhaustion.
Ashwagandha boosts clarity and focus while reducing stress and anxiety. Thus, it improves both physical and mental wellbeing, so you can maintain peak performance on and off the bike.
By streamlining mitochondrial function, ashwangandha stimulates energy production at the cellular level. It also increases creatine levels, which signal greater energy release, so that you will feel energized after your ride without having to fear the subsequent energy crash.
ENHANCED BLOOD FLOW
Compounds in beetroot such as betalin and nitrates increase blood flow by dilating the blood vessels, and were shown to improve exercise efficiency in cyclists.
Betalins inhibit specific inflammatory signaling pathways, so you can recover faster even after a tough ride.
Cyclists who take beetroot supplements have been shown to reduce their pulmonary oxygen uptake and improve overall performance.
Piperine, one of the main substances in black pepper, has been shown to block the formation of fat cells so that you stay toned and in race shape.
A study found that the chemical compounds found in black pepper effectively improved the body’s acute inflammatory response.
Black pepper is rich potent antioxidants, which may help protect your cells from damaging free radicals that are released after intense aerobic activities such as cycling.
Packed with Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, broccoli helps cyclists fight free radical build-up and oxidative stress.
The nutrients in broccoli, including calcium, vitamin K and phosphorus, help with the growth and repair of tissues and bones, so you recover quicker.
Many endurance athletes are deficient in iron, which transports oxygen to the muscles, and broccoli helps to boost iron levels and increase its absorption.
Chia seeds are whole foods, and take some time for the body to naturally digest. Their energy stores are stabilizing through their slow-release, so you stay energized throughout your entire ride.
Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are a natural anti-inflammatory, chia seeds will support your immune system while speeding up recovery by reducing your body’s inflammatory response following hard racing.
High in antioxidants, chia seeds clear up free radicals and facilitate recovery.
Chickpeas are packed with protein and carbohydrates, both of which are critical nutrients for endurance athletes to perform as well as recover.
Rich in fiber, chickpeas are filling and slow digestion, so endurance athletes have a consistent energy source to last with them.
Chickpeas are high in the amino acid tryptophan, a main building block of serotonin, which boosts happiness and wards off depression. When you’re feeling happy, you’re more likely to ride.
Coleus raises levels of a compound inside cells called cAMP, which helps relax muscles around bronchial tubes to make breathing easier during your rides and prevent respiratory spasms.
Coleus may promote fat loss while preserving muscle mass, so you can tone your body so that it can reach its maximum athletic capacity.
Grapefruit decreases insulin spikes after meals, teaching our bodies to store less fat than they would otherwise. If added to a good cycling training regimen that helps you continue to build strength, you could be riding stronger and lighter.
Water accounts for about 88% of a grapefruit’s weight, so you can rehydrate after intense bouts of exercise.
High in antioxidants such as vitamins A and C, grapefruits protect your cells from damage via free radicals in both the short- and long-term, which become particularly abundant following endurance activities.
Bell peppers are primarily composed of carbs and fiber so that you can quickly refuel after a long ride without crashing later.
Lutein, an antioxidant high in green bell peppers, protects your body’s proteins, fats, and DNA from stressors which your body produces after long rides.
Green tea extract has been shown to help with fat loss and increase fat oxidation for endurance athletes, leaving more carbohydrate energy stores for the latter parts of a long ride.
Green tea’s fat-burning properties have an additive effect when paired with endurance training in which they improve one’s endurance capacity, keeping you in peak shape.
Catechins, an antioxidant found in green tea extract, may reduce cellular damage from free radicals and delay muscle fatigue. Cyclists are especially susceptible to these after long rides, and consuming antioxidants will promote a more complete recovery before returning to the bike.
Hemp seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, such as Omega-3 and Omega-6, which have been shown to boost blood flow and improve cyclists’ performance.
About 25% of the calories in hemp seeds come from protein. What’s more, they contain all the essential amino acids, making them a complete protein source.
Rosmarinc acid, found in holy basil, exhibits anti-inflammatory effects that will speed up your body’s healing process, especially after strenuous rides.
Your body becomes increasingly susceptible to be harmed by stress after bouts of intense physical activity. Adaptogens in holy basil will help your body’s response towards any psychological, mental, or physical stress you face.
Kale is rich in Vitamin C, the body’s first defense towards colds and upper respiratory infections, both of which are common ailments when cycling hard.
Vitamins in kale keep capillary walls and blood vessels firm for better blood flow, which pays off when pedaling at high intensities.
Kale is high in nitrates, which has been shown to improve muscle efficiency and endurance exercise tolerance, so you can be stronger and ride longer.
Olive leaves are filled with antioxidants and radical scavengers, which protect your cells and help them recover after riding.
Endurance athletes are especially susceptible to illness, and one study showed that olive leaf extract sped up athletes’ recovery time from illness, so you can get back on the bike.
Individuals taking olive leaf extract supplements have reported that it imparts greater vigor, which can increase performance both on and off the bike.
Pea protein is a complete protein, meaning it has all 9 of the essential amino acids that are necessary to build muscle, so you can improve your abilities on the bike.
Studies have shown that pea protein is equally as effective as other protein sources in promoting gains in muscle thickness during workouts, so you can speed up the process of strengthening and toning your muscles while training.
Arginine, an amino acid found in peas, facilitates the release of nitric oxide, which increases oxygen and blood flow, so your body becomes more efficient while cycling.
Quinoa is high in quercetin, a flavonoid that increases oxygen uptake and endurance capacity, thus, boosting a cyclist’s athletic ability and performance.
Quinoa is a rich source of polyphenol compounds, which enhance the nutritive properties of food, so you can maximize the benefits of your post-workout meal after a long ride.
With a lower glycemic index than bread or pasta, quinoa maintains your body’s normal triglycerides and blood sugar, and refuels you with long-lasting energy after a tough ride.
Spinach is rich in Vitamin E that protects your cells, particularly those in your muscles, which take a beating during intense cycling sessions.
The nutrients found in spinach have been shown to improve lung health as well as breathing at altitude so that your lungs can keep up with your legs.
Spinach helps to sweep up potentially damaging free radicals, which cyclists produce great swathes of since they place a great strain on their energy system. The result is a stronger, more bullet-proof immune system.
Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, which replenish your body’s depleted glycogen stores following a hard ride.
High in potassium, sweet potatoes provide nutrients from which your body is often depleted after a hot and sweaty ride and that can help prevent muscle soreness.
Sweet potatoes have a high water content that can help quickly re-hydrate post-ride.
Packed with anthocyanins, which fight inflammation and speed healing, tart juice has been shown to accelerate recovery and is perfect for following a strenuous cycling session.
Cyclists taking turmeric had significantly lower levels of stress and inflammatory markers following bouts of exhaustive exercise.
Turmeric dramatically increases the body’s antioxidant capacity, helping reduce muscle damage and improve muscle soreness, allowing for faster recovery and more time on the bike.
Curcumin, an active component of turmeric, helps support immune function to maintain overall health and vitality so that you can keep riding.
