The most important nutritional supplements for athletes

*photo by Maria Kytölä In the daily life of an active person, it is important to take care of a varied diet and the intake of vital nutrients. An active person's need for different nutrients is naturally higher than normal due to heavy consumption. Getting the necessary vitamins, minerals and trace elements from food alone is almost impossible. For this reason, high-quality and strong food supplements are a great help to support the diet of an active person. The needs of an active person or a professional athlete for various nutritional supplements do not in themselves differ from the so-called of the needs of a normal person, but the quantities are larger due to heavy consumption. Adding vitamins and trace elements in the form of food supplements as part of a varied diet is not only recommended among athletes, but the more you train, the more fuel your body needs to function.

An active lifestyle is good for the heart, but it also strains the heart, muscles and nervous system

Regular exercise is known to be good for the body and mind, but at the same time physical strain is hard on the muscles, joints, nervous system and heart function. An active person should pay special attention to heart health. Regular sports improve the health of the heart and blood vessels and prevent nasty diseases, but on the other hand, extremely heavy physical exertion puts a strain on the heart and nervous system. When training is stressful and activity levels rise, the body can no longer survive on minimum amounts of nutrients. If training and diet are not in balance, recovery from training slows down, and there may be a weakening of resistance, problems with body care, stress injuries or fatigue and exhaustion.
