“My favourite product is Sportif nutrition white mulberries in organic quality. As a thrower, I need to take big amounts of proteins. Mulberries are perfect for me, because they contain about 14 % of protein. That is really a high percentage for a dried fruit. I like to have it straight after training, because it has also quick carbs, so it is ideal for refueling. But I also use it if I want to sweeten some meal, because they have this amazing honey-taste.”

Usually, I have Monday, Wednesday and Friday two-phase trainings which consists of special strength throwing trainings and gym. Tuesday and Thursday I train only one-phase athletic training. Trainings are modified depending on the part of a season, that I am actually in. I start my preparation for a new season in the middle of October. Firstly, I try to enhance my strength, this phase lasts until December. I need to have protein oriented nutrition to support muscle growth. Sportif nutrition products help me to get enough muscle growth. It is good to combine it with convetional sports nutrition, because Sportif products are made of natural ingredients, so you do not have to fear that you would overtake them.

Mulberry trees originally come from China, but they have already started spreading to Europe during Middle Ages. They are highly resistant against illnesses and grow well mainly in a warm mediterranean regions. White mulberries dried fruits have a delicious taste which reminds figs. They contain high amount of natural sugar, thanks to which they are sweet and taste like coated with honey. Moreover they are also a good source of calcium, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium. White mulberries fruits are completely without lactose and gluten. Despite the fact they are fruits, mulberries contain relatively high amount of protein and nearly no fat. Mulberries are great choice for direct consumption but they excel also in muesli, yoghurts and other sweet snacks.

You can use mulberries as a natural sweetener. If you use it in an adequate amount, it is a nutritional booster for your body compared with other options for sweetening.
