Every athlete wants to be the king of the track, striving to win every race and if possible, to make a new world record. Athletes do the much they can to keep on top of the game, regular practice, workouts and all that stuff is always featuring on their schedule. However, the basic and most essential input you need as an athlete is a good nutritional provision to keep up the tone.
You need the same 50 vitamins and minerals as everyone else. Although athletes may benefit from additional nutrients, medical professionals have not offered any specific set of guidelines. To stay healthy, just be sure the extra calories you take in each day are nutrient dense– full of calcium, iron, potassium and other healthy vitamins and minerals.
