Description:
The Performance Enhancing Ration Components (PERC) project supports the Army Science and Technology Objective 'Nutritional Strategies to Enhance Soldier Performance.' The focus of the PERC project is to demonstrate, through nutrition intervention, enhancement of physical and/or mental performance in extreme environmental conditions or during sustained high-intensity work. In this PERC study, we examined the effects of a liquid carbohydrate (CR0) supplement on exercise endurance of Special Operations Forces (SOF) soldiers. The results of this study have encouraging implications in that they demonstrate that the sustainability and survivability of our combat forces can be enhanced through nutrition intervention. By tailoring the nutrient composition of the diet, environmental and battlefield stress may be attenuated and decrements in performance may be prevented.
