Optimise your performance with Sports Multi

Clair Whitty - Naturally Healthy

I have often been asked about a multivitamin with a focus on sports and fitness rather than just everyday needs. Viridian Sports Multivitamin fits the bill.

People who are fit and active have a higher requirement for certain nutrients. This multi is perfect for anyone involved in aerobic exercise, weight training, circuit training, body building, running, or professional sporting events.

Some of the key nutrients include B vitamin B5, B6, B12, and green tea. Also iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium, and boron, zinc, chromium, selenium, CoQ10, MCT (medium chain triglycerides) alpha lipoic acid, and Vitamin C, D, and K.

B Vitamins are required for energy metabolism of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids, and are involved in the production of coenzymes and hormones. During exercise, B vitamins are needed to break down and convert these molecules into fuel for the muscles and cells.

Green Tea is included to promote fat loss. It can also increase maximum oxygen uptake potentially improving endurance. Plus it has an ability to improve glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity; this can mean that there is an increased availability of fat as fuel, which may spare muscle glycogen during exercise.

It contains Potassium an essential electrolyte and CoQ10 an important nutrient for energy production, ATP. It can support athletic performance and reduce fatigue. Calcium, magnesium, boron alongside vitamin D and K are important for bone strength. Magnesium is an essential nutrient for muscle function and energy metabolism, muscle contraction and relaxation.

Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and alpha lipoic acid are antioxidants which can help prevent oxidative damage that can occur after exercise. They also support immunity.

Zinc is included for immune support and macronutrient metabolism. MCT's are included for increased endurance.

Viridian Sports Multi pairs well with Viridian Electrolyte Fix. Exercise increases fluid loss through sweat and if not replaced, dehydration will occur. A loss of electrolytes will affect athletic performance. This contains all the necessary electrolytes sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride in an ionic form as well as other minerals naturally present in sea water.

If you're involved in sport or are physically active I think these supplements are worth taking a look at. You might find them interesting.
