76th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop

Oxford, UK 15 August 2012


The NNI had the fantastic opportunity to organise a scientific workshop around Sports Nutrition during the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. A multidisciplinary group of scientists, athletes, and coaches gathered to discuss the latest scientific evidence on micronutrients and how they can influence endurance and performance. The nutritional solutions are clearly distinguished from doping yet they can still deliver remarkable benefits.
