You might think that you are getting enough vitamins and minerals through your everyday diet, but you have to keep in mind that when you are on an intense training plan, your body’s need for vitamins and minerals increases!

MICRONUTRIENTS

Micronutrients are essential nutrients your body requires in small quantities; they are also responsible for the following:

  • Health and immune system function
  • Bone and tissue formation
  • Helps our body’s metabolism to function
  • They can also help aid in muscle building and fat loss

Now, if you are putting your body under stress (physical or emotional) then your body’s demand for these nutrients will increase in order for it to function at optimal levels. The good news is that if you are eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, enough fish, meat and grains, chances are that you are reaching your daily vitamin and mineral requirements. Unfortunately, very few people eat like this, especially if you are trying to limit your calorie intake in order to lose fat.

A recent study from the Journal of the ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition) showed that scientists analysed diets of both sedentary adults and athletes, and the results were that out of 70 diets, none met the RDM (recommended daily allowance) for most essential minerals and vitamins. Keep in mind that the recommended daily allowance is based on a minimum requirement and not an ideal requirement, which means that the subjects were nowhere near their ideal requirements.



MICRONUTRIENTS AND PERFORMANCE

Micronutrients play key roles in energy production and metabolism. Vitamins that are directly involved in mitochondrial (muscle cell power houses) energy metabolism are mainly water-soluble vitamins like vitamin C and different types of vitamin B. Including more vitamins and minerals into your daily eating plan can also help speed recovery after intense workouts.

MICRONUTRIENTS AND FAT LOSS

When your main goal is to shred unwanted kilos, the first thing you need to do is cut out unnecessary calories. If you are on a restricted calorie diet while undergoing intense training your body’s demand for vitamins and minerals increases! Vitamins and minerals can help your body to perform at an optimal level which has a direct and indirect effect on your energy, fat metabolism and weight loss.

MICRONUTRIENTS AND MUSCLE BUILDING

Yip, ingesting your daily allowance of vitamins and minerals can help you to build more lean muscle. Vitamins and minerals like vitamin D, B, C, folic acid, zinc, biotin and magnesium all play an essential role in muscle function and performance which can lead to more lean muscle.

CONCLUSION

If your main goal is optimal health, immune system function or even to build more muscle, lose fat or increase sport performance, then I highly recommend that you include a multivitamin into your supplement arsenal.
