Benefits of Using Vitamins When Working Out

When we work out, our muscles move and perform in ways above our body’s ability to provide basic nutrition for ourselves. It is important to supplement with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and other nutrients to help us achieve our best results.

Vitamin C is important as it increases immune system activity and helps break down carbohydrates to use them for energy. It also plays a vital role in collagen production and tissue repair.

Calcium is great for bone strength, helps with processing energy, and helps contracting muscles when working out. Your bones tend to take a lot of stress when working out, so keep them strong with readily absorbed sources like MCHA (Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite) or Calcium Citrate.

B12 is great as it helps provide oxygen to your muscles. It also helps with the production of red blood cells, so it will help your body in building that muscle you want, verse letting it tear itself down.

Protein is an essential part of muscle growth, and is needed for our bodies to develop and maintain muscle mass. Making sure you also have different sources of protein in your diet is important as well so your body can function properly.

A Balanced Diet is essential when working out. This not only fuels the body and muscles, but it also provides essential nutrients needed for recovery and repair.
