Food processing and farming practices remove vital nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, from even the most balanced diet. Exercise increases your body’s need to generate energy and it’s need to build and repair damaged tissues. Minerals are required for your cells to create sustained energy levels. Vitamins are necessary for your body’s anti-oxidant defense systems and exercise adaptations such as repairing damaged tissues.
Exercise, Training, Competition, Rehab Factors
Regular exercise increases vitamin and mineral requirments. Exercise can induce vitamin and mineral deficiency by:
- decreased absorption through the digestive tract
- increased excretion in sweat, urine and feces
- increased degradation (use) of the nutrients
- increased requirement for more nutrient from training adaptation (i.e. increased muscle cell requirement from endurance training and muscle repair requirement from strength training)
- Scientific evidence has shown impaired exercise performance with inadequate vitamin status. Exercise impairment was more profound when multiple vitamin deficiencies were present.
- Prolonged exercise/training may create mineral (iron, zinc, copper) deficiency from redistribution of nutrients for performance functions.
- Inadequate intake of vitamins and minerals is common due to consumption of micro-nutrient poor, refined food.
- Deficiencies in micro-nutrients cause cellular damage in research studies.
Athletes tend to focus on macro-nutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fats, magnesium, calcium, etc) but fail to include adequate micro-nutrients to their supplemental diet. Continuous physical stress (exercise and recovery) tends to deplete these micro-nutrients (B-vitamins, zinc, fat soluble vitamins A-D-E-K, manganese, etc) which are readily available in a multi-vitamin.
Recommended dosing: 1 tablet daily with food/meals. Consider 2 during periods of intense training/competition. Always take vitamins/minerals with food/meals.

Multi-Vitamin Efficacy & Safety
“Nutrition surveys consistently reveal that substantial numbers of Americans fail to obtain recommended amounts of various nutrients from diet alone. If official nutrient recommendations are taken seriously, then it must follow that people would be better off getting the full recommended amount of each nutrient than falling short of that amount.”
“The best solution for most people is to eat the best diet possible, adopt other healthy habits, and use a rational assortment of nutritional dietary supplements, most notably a multivitamin, to ensure adequate intakes or to try to approach levels that may be considered optimal.”
