Vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and minerals play an important role in sports nutrition, as they are essential for optimal physical performance and recovery.
Vitamins are essential nutrients that the body needs for numerous functions, including energy metabolism, muscle contraction, immune function and recovery after exercise. Athletes often have an increased need for certain vitamins, especially the B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12), vitamin C and vitamin D. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein can usually meet the need for vitamins. However, in some cases, targeted supplementation may be appropriate, especially in cases of proven deficiency or specific needs.
Minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc are also critical for athletic performance. They are involved in muscle contraction, energy metabolism, muscle oxygenation and recovery after exercise. Athletes who engage in intense training or sweat heavily may have an increased need for minerals. A balanced diet with a variety of foods such as dairy products, legumes, whole grains, meat and vegetables can help meet mineral needs. However, in some cases, supplementation may be appropriate, especially in cases of proven deficiency or specific needs.
It is important to note that supplements, including vitamins and minerals, are not a substitute for a balanced diet. A varied and balanced diet should always be the main source of vitamins and minerals. Before taking supplements, it is advisable to consult a physician, nutritionist or healthcare professional to discuss individual needs and any risks.
