Potatoes: The Go-To Food of Athletes

potato

Have you felt so exhausted after working out or just doing household chores or simply walking around the block?  You are not alone! It’s called energy depletion, which is especially common with athletes who engage in extensive trainings and workouts.

Runners like me rely on carbohydrates as our main source of energy. It helps our brain and body function properly.  As we consume carbohydrates, our body breaks it down into smaller sugar molecules called glucose which are stored in the liver and muscles. It will then be converted to energy to help fuel physical activity.

10589135_898003150214229_352216777_n

The glycogen in our muscles gets depleted as our physical activity increases, thus a need for more carbohydrates.  Eating the right amount of carbohydrates before and after vigorous activities is therefore extremely important.

One excellent source of carbohydrates is potato!  Thanks to Potatoes USA-Philippines, high quality potatoes are now in the Philippines.

US potatoes are classified as a superfood, a nutrient-dense food that can help fuel huge exertions from physical exercise and movement. Potatoes are also high in potassium, even more so than a banana, and are also full of vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, iron and magnesium.

US potatoes are available in fresh, frozen and dehydrated forms. Fresh potatoes are the pick of the crop, carefully sized and graded based on standards of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Frozen US potatoes are premium potatoes quick-frozen in a state-or-the-art process which locks in the flavor and nutrients.  They come in all sizes – frozen whole, frozen half-shell and the most popular frozen straight cut, wedges, crinkle cut, lattice, curly for fries and hash browns.

Another variant is US dehydrated potatoes, they are compactly packaged and perfect for a wide array of dishes such as soups, stews, sauces and many more.

I can’t wait to try new potato dishes! I’m excited to start making recipes for my pre or post run meals. Of course, I’ll soon experiment on old family recipes by substituting frozen potatoes for fresh potatoes!

In the meantime, you can click on this link to see recommended potato recipes that can help power athletic performance: https://www.potatogoodness.com/recipe-category/performance/.

US potatoes are now available in supermarkets and groceries nationwide.  For more information on US potatoes, visit https://www.potatogoodness.com/ or like and follow Potatoes USA-Philippines on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PotatoesUSAPhilippines/.

Ayala backs PATAFA

35963508_1972991579401044_9080625835244781568_o (002)

Ayala Corporation has reaffirmed its support to the development and training of the country’s national track and field athletes, giving them access to the facilities of its newly opened Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite.

Ayala had recently linked up with the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association and served as title sponsor of the just-concluded Ayala Philippine Athletics Championships in Iligan, Isabela.

“We believe in our national athlete’s potential to inspire, drive and instill collective nationalism through sports,” said Ayala’s John Philip Orbeta.  “One of the biggest gaps is an internationally certified athletics facility which the Vermosa Sports Hub provides as means to improve their performance and competitiveness.”

36302522_2145658528782012_5094947182998454272_n

At PATAFA’s new official home, athletes will train in the only international Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) certified track and field oval in the Philippines with specifications and standards equivalent to those they will compete with internationally.  Aside from the existing oval and Olympic-sized pool, upon completion of the Sports Hub’s first phase, PATAFA will also have access to the 600-square meter Sante Fitness Lab, a first-of-its-kind combined facilities in the country which will feature a strength and conditioning fitness facility, sports rehab areas, as Sports Science Laboratory, a dance studio, a spinning class area, bike shop and services, a nutrition and fitness cafe, VO2 max/lactate testing, plus conference and lecture rooms.  Future plans include provision for a 3,000-seat multipurpose indoor sports arena.

Manila Water Company Inc., through its subsidiary Manila Water Total Solutions, will also be supporting this project with Ayala through a hydration sponsorship of Healthy Family Purified Water to the PATAFA athletes.  Healthy Family will be supplying 4,000 bottles monthly of its 500mL variant to PATAFA for the duration of their training at Vermosa.

As advocates of environmental sustainability, MWTS will also be working together with PATAFA on a program called “Toka ng PATAFA”.  This program is an advocacy on environmental stewardship and responsible consumerism that helps promote the value of waste segregation through the recovery of used PET bottles.  This is an initiative to be spearheaded by our athletes as champions for health and wellness, as well as, staunch partners for the environment.

Ayala will provide financial support to facilitate and strengthen PATAFA’s recruitment and training programs.

“Ayala’s support will help the athletes train better, perform better and hopefully bring more medals and recognition for the country,” said PATAFA President Philip Juico.

The eagerness to help improve the skills and international ranking of our national athletes has spurred the Ayala Group to do its part in helping Filipino athletes achieve excellence in the their respective sports and succeed in various international competitions.

The Truth About Energy Drinks: Truth vs Myth Exposed

Cobra Omnibus

The road to the education of energy drink consumption has been a long-standing battle of proving facts from fiction. With today’s lifestyle pace further progressing, keeping up with the demands to fulfill more in a day becomes more and more time and energy consuming. The emergence of energy drink has given active and lifestyle people a lifeline to get more things done. And if there is one truth about energy drink is that you can control what you consume, and knowing the truths versus the fictions will allow you to maximize its benefits when you need it most.

Truth vs Myth about Energy Drinks

#1: Energy drinks containing high levels of caffeine

MYTH. A 240-mL bottle of the leading energy drink contains about 90mg of caffeine, in which compared to a medium or large-sized brewed coffee that has 3 times more caffeine content confirms this is a myth. But more than the wake-up buzz, Energy drinks also have added ingredients such as B-vitamins, Ginseng, and Inositol which also help further boost your energy and mental alertness.

It is always best to check the back label of the product to give guidance for you to track how much caffeine an energy drink contains.

#2: Energy drinks are also sports drinks

TRUTH and MYTH. While there is no difference between Sports drinks and Energy drinks, it is more correct to say that Energy drinks can be used as sports drinks. They are both categorized as water based flavored drinks which may or may not contain electrolytes, vitamins and other nutrients. The ingredients energy drinks provide are intended to enhance physical performance especially before workout as it keeps you more stimulated for exercise. However, one should keep in mind that energy drinks are diuretics because of the caffeine content, which is why it’s important to partner this with continuous drinking of water.

#3: Energy drinks are not for children or people with caffeine sensitivities

TRUTH. As caffeine being the key ingredient found in energy drinks, thus the effects on sleeping habits, moods, and even appetite may be experienced. Similarly on how we keep our children away from coffee and sodas, drinking energy drink is also not recommended for them. There are also high caution given to people with caffeine sensitivity, and most especially pregnant women as this may affect the fetus development.

#4: Energy drinks cause palpitations and difficulty in breathing

MYTH AND TRUTH. The main bad reputation of energy drink derives from the issue of experiencing heavy palpitations that may bring about breathing difficulties. As we’ve established, caffeine is present in most of what we consume: energy drinks, sodas, teas, and even chocolates and nuts. People who are not used to consuming this ingredient, or at the very least, people who do not drink coffee, will have higher chances of experiencing the effects. Let it be known that it is not because the ingredient is not safe for the body, but solely because the body adjusts to this added stimulant.

#5: Energy drinks are not regulated

MYTH. The leading energy drink in the country has been in the market since 2006, and for more than a decade, it has continuously passed the strictest standards of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The key ingredients inside an energy drink are also the same ingredients that are present in the food we consume daily. Thus, with this regulation, Cobra, as the no.1 energy drink, is approved to be widely available in the Philippines.

As the leader of the pact, Cobra Energy Drink vows to educate the market by sharing information about energy drink ingredients and proper consumption habits; proving that after all, you are in control of your own energy.

Energy drink enables one to power through various day-to-day activities, from mid to high-level energy requirement. Cobra delivers both physical performance and mental alertness made for people who push productivity to the next level. What’s more is that it is also a more refreshing flavorful drink that also has performance-boosting ingredients.

What’s inside every Cobra Energy Drink?

Cobra Energy Drink contains safe levels of caffeine, and sugar as safe stimulants for instant energy boost and increased mental alertness. It also contains high-quality B-vitamins that help the body get more energy from the food that you eat.

Added ingredients are Taurine, which is an amino acid that aids the body’s metabolic process and known to have antioxidant properties; it also contains Ginseng to boost memory, concentration, and performances; and Inositol that aids in nerve functions.

Cobra being the no.1 energy drink in the country continues its efforts in providing truths about energy drinks. This gives people more knowledge on how energy drink plays a role in their active and busy lifestyles – and an understanding that if we take charge and stay informed, we have the power to control our energy.
