Obtaining adequate vitamins — including the use of supplements — is becoming more generally accepted as prudent behavior for people engaged in advanced fitness or sports activities. People involved in heavy fitness training may need more of several specific vitamins that are involved in energy production.
Recently, several sport nutrition experts indicated that some persons might be at risk for a vitamin deficiency, such as those in weight-control sports and those who for one reason or another do not eat a well-balanced diet. Others note that the prudent use of antioxidant supplementation can provide insurance against a suboptimal diet and/or the elevated demands of intense physical activity, and thus may be recommended to limit the effects of oxidative stress in individuals performing regular, heavy exercise.
