The Need for B Vitamins for Active Individuals

Would you consider yourself an active individual?
Do you lift weights?
Do you perform cardio based exercise regularly?

Did you know that if you lack in B Vitamins, you are most likely to suffer a reduction in your exercise performance and are less likely to repair damaged muscles or build muscle mass?

Yes, thats right!! Even a small deficiency can result in reduced performance and recovery.

Vitamins are essential for the body to function properly. B-vitamins are called 'micronutrients' and are used to convert proteins and carbohydrates into energy. They are also used for cell repair and production.

The B-vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, and vitamin B-6) are necessary in the energy producing pathways of the body, while folate and vitamin B-12 are required for the synthesis of new cells, such as the red blood cells, and for the repair of damaged cells.

Active individuals with poor or marginal nutritional status for a B-vitamin may have decreased ability to perform exercise at high intensities. Current research suggests that exercise may increase the requirements for riboflavin and vitamin B-6. Active individuals who have poor diets, especially those restricting energy intakes or eliminating food groups from the diet, should consider supplementation.

    That's true. Vitamin B plays an important role in the people who likes doing sports. But I seldom knew the fundamental reason.
