The benefits of maple
The maple source of electrolyte: During a considerable effort in endurance sports, potassium is lost through perspiration. Maple syrup is partly composed of potassium, calcium and magnesium, so it fits well into the athlete's diet. The three minerals all work to help muscle contraction and relaxation.
The maple source of minerals: Maple syrup is a good source of zinc, one of the minerals also playing the role of antioxidants. Several studies show that zinc improves muscle metabolism and strength development. In addition, 60 ml of maple syrup provide 100% of manganese needs, enough to ensure an optimal intake of micronutrients.
The maple source of antioxidants: Each 60 ml of maple syrup contains a minimum of 4 mg of polyphenols. These antioxidants help reduce muscle fatigue if consumed before and during training. It could even be that their consumption after training accelerates recovery.
