Why should I take a multivitamin alongside my daily training regime?
The benefits of exercise are widely known and understood, however the potential negative affects have only recently been addressed in the sports world. You can’t build muscle with protein alone, and Other Nutrients are thought to improve recovery times. Furthermore, from a fitness perspective, exercise causes elevated aerobic metabolism, which in turn increases the production of free radicals. This problem occurs during intense exercise when the free radical production exceeds the body’s ability to produce antioxidants. During exercise, the conversion of fat and sugar into Energy occurs through a process known as oxidation. During this process, most of the oxygen combines with hydrogen to produce water. However, about 5% of the oxygen forms free radicals.
Taking a strong multi-vitamin supplement, such as Lamberts Performance Multi-Guard Sport, with a well-balanced diet each day, is the ideal way to promote optimum performance, long-term health and antioxidant protection. Vitamin A, C, & E, glutathione, Selenium and Co Enzyme Q10 play an important role in free radical protection, especially for the active sports-person.
