Vitamins & Athletic Performance
Going Beyond Energetic
Athletes in training or during competition, your vitamin levels are probably the last thing on your mind. The concern is with your performance: those vital last half seconds that help you surpass your personal best, or that inch or two more that takes you that much further. You'd be surprised at how much certain vitamin levels affect athletic performance.
Vitamin D3

From a training perspective, a number of new studies show Vitamin D’s may provide significant performance benefits.

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, concluded that adolescents with higher levels of vitamin D can jump higher, quicker, and with greater power than those with lower vitamin D levels.

A review in Molecular Aspects of Medicine showed that vitamin D3 increased the size of fast-twitch muscles and muscular strength. Research also shows low levels of vitamin D may increase risk for sports injuries, including stress fractures because the nutrient is so vital for bone health.

Vitamin B12

Increasing an energy without a sugar high…Desire for more Energy

54% of people claim that they are often tired for no reason. When you feel tired and run down you are easily irritated and your zest for life disappears. Its role in red blood cell formation, B12 is crucial for getting oxygen to tissues, and has been proven to help reduce tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B12 is a key energy vitamin. B12 is needed for metabolism of carbohydrates, which serve as the body's fuel.

Why D'Life Boost B12 oral spray?

Often it's a struggle to achieve healthy B12 levels. By obtaining B12 via the sublingual membranes, the vitamin is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, avoiding the digestive system which destroys essential nutrients with strong enzymes and acids. In fact, B12 is so difficult to absorb that only one per cent of intake from food is actually retained. Supplementing is the only way to make sure.

STOP PRESS: Dangerous Underestimation X 10 of "D3".

Seldom do the medical community agree on something this important, so this revelation is ground-breaking. As I write, a group of scientists from the Creighton University and the University of California, Dr Mercola & the Vitamin D Council have presented data claiming that the Institute of Medicine experts underestimated human needs by an order of 10x magnitude.
These nutrition researchers examined data from a different population than that used in the initial calculations, and came up with a recommendation of approximately 7,000 IU per day of vitamin D to achieve 20ng/ml. A better level of 40 ng/ml (100nmol/L) is the lower threshold for therapeutic activity, and the threshold thought to better protect the health of the general population

New study suggests vitamin D supplementation helps weight loss in obese and overweight people

A recent study led by Dr. Luisella Vigna of the University of Milan found that vitamin D supplementation resulted in weight loss in obese and overweight people who are vitamin D deficient. Prior research has found that low vitamin D levels are associated with obesity. Vigna and colleagues conducted a study to provide insight on vitamin D3's role in weight loss. They recruited 400 obese or overweight adults and divided them into three groups: those who did not take supplements, those who took 25,000 IU of vitamin D per month and those who took 100,000 IU of vitamin D per month. All participants were put on the same low-calorie diet.
After six months, only those who took 100,000 IU per month achieved sufficient vitamin D status. Both groups who supplemented with vitamin D experienced a significantly greater weight decrease and reduction in waist circumference compared to the group who did not supplement. Those who supplemented with 25,000 IU lost an average of 8.4 pounds, while those who supplemented with 100,000 IU lost an average of 11.9 pounds. The participants who did not supplement with vitamin D lost an average of 2.6 pounds.
