After the first edition with 2,997 registered professionals from all over the world and an average rating of 4.8 stars (Spanish and English symposium), we organized the second edition of this symposium on sports.
The objective of this is to show professionals in the world of sport the latest scientific research and practical uses of current sports supplements in different sports disciplines by some of the best professionals in research and practice in the world.
Non-doping nutritional ergogenic aids constitute a wide and differentiated range of foods, whose main function is to complement the diet to optimize nutrition in order to promote health and maximize training results in athletes.
Nutritional supplements such as protein concentrates, amino acids or their derivatives and carbohydrates, and other ergogenic substances represent valid and legitimate alternatives to improve the composition of diets. Dietary supplements are currently marketed as extracts, concentrates, tablets, capsules, softgels, gelcaps, gummies, liquids, or powders.
During the last fifteen years, the sales of supplements in the world market have experienced an unprecedented increase. This has encouraged a great avalanche of new partners to enter the market with products that promise weight loss, muscle mass gain or simply promise to be the elixir of health and vitality. Unfortunately, most do not have enough scientific evidence to back them up.
Since Crown Sport Nutrition was born, our commitment and main axis has been based on science. That is why we have organized this second edition and we invite you free of charge to attend the II International Symposium on Nutritional Supplements for Sport and Health by Crown Sport Nutrition.
STARTING AT 13:00 (SPAIN, MADRID TIME), 12:00 H (LONDON), 6:00 AM ( MEXICO CITY), 9:00 AM (ARGENTINA TIME)
The event consists of 5 conferences given by internationally recognized researchers with extensive experience in the area of sports nutrition. All of these will be translated into Spanish/English and the event can be seen deferred up to 1 year later.
