Important micronutrients for good performance in sports
Orthomol Sport contains L-carnitine and coenzyme Q10, which are both involved in energy metabolism. Particularly large quantities are found in animal products, such as meat and milk. Orthomol Sport also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in large quantities in fish oil. They include above all docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are found in cell membranes, for example.
In the interests of combatting doping, all Orthomol Sports products are included on the Kölner Liste® (Cologne List®) to achieve greater transparency and safety.
