It is very important for athletes to ensure that they have an adequate vitamin B12 intake, regardless of whether they participate in an endurance sport, a team sport, or an explosive strength sport. Vitamin B12 contains numerous properties that are beneficial for any ambitious athlete. Vitamin B12 supports the production of red blood cells and contributes to the production of cells and tissues. Vitamin B12 also contributes to metabolic processes that turn food into energy. This energy is needed for all bodily functions as well as to deliver a good performance. Vitamin B12 also helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue and boost concentration. Furthermore, vitamin B12 supports the body’s defence system.
Vitamin B12 can be found in animal products. For that reason, vegetarians must pay particular attention to their vitamin B12 intake. Vegans (who consume no animal products at all) are advised to take extra vitamin B12 to supplement their diet. Intrinsic factor is a substance that is required for the absorption of vitamin B12. This protein is produced in the stomach and facilitates the absorption of vitamin B12 in the small intestine. It is therefore important that the stomach functions properly for vitamin B12 to be absorbed.
