According to the nutritionist Catarina Esteves opinion in an article by MH, some vitamins and minerals can help a lot! Find out which ones.

VITAMIN C

It is not only important in reducing and improving colds, flu, asthma and other breatth problems but also in the formation of collagen, which is important in the health of skin, teeth and joints. In addition, due to its antioxidant power, it provides protection against free radicals, protecting you from external threats and the effects of intense training, thus delaying the natural aging process.

VITAMIN D

Very important in the immune function, especially in the prevention of colds and flu and in the effective action of the immune system against viruses and bacteria. It has been highly recommended in strengthening the immune system. In addition, this fat-soluble vitamin regulates calcium and phosphorus levels and is also essential for muscle function.

MAGNESIUM

This mineral, in addition to ensuring the correct functioning of muscle tissue, is also responsible for reducing tiredness and fatigue. It also has an especially active role in energy-producing metabolism and in the functioning of the nervous system.

SELENIUM

It is a mineral with great antioxidant properties. Thus, it can be a good ally for those who practice physical activity intensely with bi-daily workouts or strength exercises with maximum load or high intensities. It also contributes to normal spermatogenesis, that is, sperm production.

ZINC

This mineral is associated with increased production of white blood cells and helps them to carry out a more aggressive fight. Zinc supplementation will make more sense at older ages, when a weakened immune system naturally occurs.

Some studies also report that zinc will have a positive impact on the regulation of hormones such as testosterone. Here, zinc will also be related to growth factors that can help boost your training results.

So, is RM Trainer's suggestion so that you can improve your energy levels through greater absorption of essential vitamins and minerals.

Realize which ones are most needed and be smart in your replacement filling these gaps in a healthy way.
