Vitamins and minerals play a huge variety of roles in the body and it is, therefore, essential that they are included in the diet. Athletes in particular may have an increased need for vitamins and minerals due to the demands of intense exercise.
Participation in intense physical activity places huge demands on an athlete. Taking a multivitamin such as the Etixx Multimax alongside training and competition could be beneficial.
Intense exercise has been found to have immunosuppressive effects meaning that athletes may have an increased likelihood of experiencing impaired health conditions. The Etixx Multimax contains vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin D which all contribute to normal immune function. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal maintenance of bones and muscles.
It is also important that athletes ensure they are not deficient in any key minerals. For example, iron is a key mineral that helps in the transport of oxygen in the body and therefore deficiencies in athletes may be detrimental for performance. The Etixx Multimax contains iron alongside a whole range of minerals which may be supported during the performance. This includes:
- Magnesium: plays an important role in energy metabolism and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue
- Zinc: plays a role in energy metabolism
- Calcium: contributes to the maintenance of normal bones
The Etixx Multimax also contains Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E, Folic acid, calcium, selenium, potassium, copper, molybdenum, and iodine.
All the minerals in Etixx Multimax are amino acid chelated. This means they are protected by an amino acid coat and this can enhance absorption. The Etixx Multimax should be included in a healthy and balanced diet and not used as a replacement for dietary vitamin and mineral intake.
