Antioxidants neutralise them and therefore an antioxidant-rich diet may help protect against these conditions and promote faster recovery after exercise. Can antioxidant supplements improve athletic performance? A review of studies presented at the IOC Consensus Conference on sports nutrition concluded that there is limited evidence that antioxidant supplements improve performance (IOC, 2003). Instead, encourage young athletes to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables each day, including a range of different colours – the more intense the colour, the higher the antioxidant content – as well as foods such as avocados, nuts, oily fish and pure vegetable oils for their vitamin E content.

In fact, the opposite may be true! The term ‘energy’ refers to the drink’s high energy (or calorie) content, not its ability to boost performance. Energy drinks comprise sugar and water. The sugar content is around 10–12 g per 100 g, or 25–31 g per 250 ml can, about the same concentration as most fizzy drinks, but too concentrated for the body to absorb quickly. At such high sugar concentrations, the fluid is absorbed more slowly from energy drinks compared with water or isotonic sports drinks, which makes them an unsuitable choice for exercise.
