Your Fuel Blueprint

Detect dietary deficiencies

Provides an understanding of which nutrients are lacking (and which are being consumed in excess).  Offers insights into customized meal planning strategies to meet your body’s specific needs for optimal performance.

Fuel Science

  • Nutrition
    Macronutrients

    Macronutrients are energy containing nutrients in your body.  They are broken down and used as fuel during exercise and recovery.  Monitoring macronutrient levels can provide insights as to whether your current diet meets your body’s nutritional needs.

    Micronutrients

    Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body needs in order to generate energy, stimulate muscle actions, and replenish cells like red blood cells. Micronutrients are important for optimizing metabolic and muscle efficiency.

     

  • Hydration

    Hydration is important for performance and safety. Inadequate hydration can impair physical and mental performance and increase your risk for heat-related illness. Hydration insights can help you match personal fluid and electrolyte needs to help you to perform more safely and at optimal levels.

Designed for athletes fueling for any sport, the fuel package evaluates nutritional status by measuring ‘macronutrient’ and ‘micronutrient’ levels and evaluating hydration indicators.

Personalized insights provided in this test package may help you gain a complete understanding of how to optimize fueling strategies for peak performance.
