Vitamin & Minerals

Vitamins & minerals – a selection of the best vitamins

Vitamins & minerals are the most commonly chosen supplements. They support immunity and well-being. Their function is to keep the body in top shape. Vitamin complexes are a mixture of all the essential vitamins. Which vitamins are worth taking? Do you need minerals? Which health-promoting supplements should you take?

The role of vitamins in the body

Firstly, vitamins are not energy molecules, which affects their role in the body. Secondly, vitamins are designed to control physiological processes in the human body. Their action is focused on maintaining the proper functioning of organs and systems. Importantly, most vitamins must be supplied to the body, as our body can only synthesize a small number of compounds. Vitamins are divided into water-soluble and fat-soluble. Fat-soluble ones are A, D, E, and K. The B vitamins are mainly soluble in water. The demand for vitamins can result from different physiological states of the body. Requirement is different during puberty and will be different for adults.

Role of minerals in the body

Minerals are classified as nutrients. Their role in metabolism is much broader than that of vitamins. We usually use minerals that fall into the electrolyte group. These include magnesium, sodium, potassium, and calcium. Minerals take care of the proper functioning of muscles and the nervous system, and it is thanks to them that your muscles can generate force and contract and that you can train intensively. Minerals are divided into macronutrients and micronutrients. Macro minerals include:
  • calcium
  • phosphorus
  • magnesium
  • potassium
  • sodium
  • chlorine
  • sulfur
  • nitrogen
  • hydrogen
  • oxygen
  • carbon

Which vitamin and mineral combinations to choose?

Depending on our needs, we can choose multicomponent supplements or monopreparations. Physically active people should provide all the necessary vitamins, as bodyweight generates a higher demand. Vitamin complexes that provide all the necessary active compounds are therefore often recommended. In addition, an increased supply of vitamin C, D3, and K2 is recommended. In the case of minerals, here we mainly focus on electrolytes. Above all, athletes lose significant amounts of minerals with sweat, which can consequently promote electrolyte disturbances. It is therefore advisable to use isotonic preparations during exercise to support the effective functioning of the nervous system and muscles. ZMA products are also popular with people in training. This is a combination of magnesium and zinc in the form of chelates. ZMA has an excellent effect on the quality of sleep. It improves the depth of sleep, extends the REM phase, and allows us to recover better.
