This package is suitable for both avid sportsmen, semi-professional and professional athletes. It provides the body with essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids.
Vitamin D is produced by the body when it is exposed to the sun and the power of the sun is high enough. Vitamin D has many different functions in the body. It is necessary for the normal muscle function, supports the immune system and is necessary for strong bones. Especially in the ‘dark’ months the production of vitamin D is limited. Research shows that 70% of all Dutch athletes (2016) had a too low 25(O)D blood value.
Krill Omega-3 is also part of the basic supplement package. Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) play an important role in the overall health of an athlete. In relation to sport it has a positive effect on the recovery capacity (reducing the inflammatory response), the immune system and adaptability to training. The diet of the average Dutch person contains too little omega 3 fatty acids.
Vitamins and minerals are needed for a wide range of body processes. For example supporting energy metabolism, growth and repair processes of the cell, protection against free radicals and nerve and muscle functions. Athletes have a greater need for different vitamins and minerals. The Multi Health Support Gold (without B6) can be used as a basic supplement next to the diet. It is especially suitable in combination with an (intensive) training and competition program, during periods of energy restricted nutrition as well as a supplement to the basic diet. *
