Nutrition for Immune Function

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Intense training sessions can impair immune function for up to 72-hours, but the good news is that consuming carbohydrates and protein following a training session can counteract this impairment. Shoot for at least 20-grams of high-quality protein and at least 45-grams of carbohydrate after your workout to maintain proper immune function!
