A Guide To The Perfect Balance Of Sports Supplements

If you want to get the most out of your exercise regime your body needs to be taking in the right balance of vitamins and minerals. But we can’t always get these nutrients from our diet, which has led to many people opting for supplements instead. However, it can be difficult to know exactly what you should be taking. Here’s a list of four of the most important for your body.

Vitamin D – to substitute for the sun

We should be able to get our levels of vitamin D sky-high from exposure to the sun. Unfortunately in cloudy Britain, there’s often not really the opportunity for us to get enough exposure. And when we do, we’re covered in sun-cream which stops the body from being able to absorb the rays. Vitamin D deficiency is common, especially in the winter and it can cause you a lot of problems.

Fortunately, supplement pills are available, although the recommended daily intake is relatively low. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so it should be taken with food.

Fish Oil – to focus the body

Fish oil is not only great for your overall health; it’s also been shown to have excellent results in decreasing body fats. However, where fish oil excels is in focusing the body during an exercise routine – you’ll get more out of your workout. Take a spoonful a day with a meal.

Whey protein – to build your muscles

If you’re looking to grow your muscles, whey protein supplementation is the most effective way to do it. Blend the protein powder into a thick shake and notice the benefits straight away.

Multivitamins – to keep you healthy

Multivitamins are often erroneously used as a way to make up for a poor overall diet. Obviously this won’t be effective – but multivitamins are fantastic in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise. It’s important to have consistency with this supplement, so take it before a meal every day.
