Vitamin D has been the center of attention the last years. Vitamin D has many different functions and is important for the general health. Vitamin D contributes to the resistance and the maintenance of strong bones. It has recently been discovered that vitamin D is important for a normal muscle function, which could positively influence the sports performance. Since then, there has been more interest in the special characteristics and possibilities of vitamin D in the sports world.
Some teams organize a sun-stage so athletes can create extra vitamin D. Especially indoor athletes like gymnasts, skaters and swimmers have to pay attention to their intake of vitamin D. It appears that athletes have their best sports performances during the summer months, when their vitamin D levels are at their highest. *2.

Vitamin C 1000 Gold is by far the most well-known vitamin. Vitamin C 1000 helps to maintain the resistance. However, vitamin C has way more lesser-known functions. Vitamin C is used in the formation of collages, which is important for the bones, for example. Vitamin C is important for the nervous system and energy metabolism as well. Vitamin C – as an oxidant – contributes to the protection of healthy cells. Fruit and vegetables are good sources of Vitamin C 1000 Gold. A varied diet provides the basic need of Vitamin C 1000 Gold. Athletes strain their bodies heavier. The ones who put their body to the test on a daily basis may choose to use additional Vitamin C 1000 Gold. Vitamin C 1000 Gold contributes to maintaining a good resistance during and after training and sports performances (at least 200 mg of vitamin C per day, in addition to the recommended daily intake of vitamin C). For that reason it is important for athletes and the coaching team to pay extra attention to Vitamin C 1000 Gold during heavy exercise.
It is a known phenomenon in the sports world: altitude training (a minimum of 3 weeks of altitude training). At high altitude the air pressure and oxygen pressure are lower. In order to deal with this, the body adjusts itself by producing more red blood cells. Vitamin C 1000 Gold increases the amount of iron in the blood. It could be useful to take a Vitamin C 1000 supplement during altitude training. The reason for using Vitamin C 1000 is that it increases the iron absorption.

Professional athletes try to get the most out of their body every day. For that reason; training, rest and nutrition have to be balanced as much as possible. The diet provides nutrients and energy to perform. The diet also provides necessary vitamins and minerals. One of these minerals is zinc. The special feature of this nutrient is that it is involved in many different processes. Zinc is important for everyone, whether you train a lot or not. Some of the properties of zinc receive much attention in all sports. Zinc plays a role in building and breaking down carbohydrates, fats, proteins and nucleic acids. It is an antioxidant that contributes to the process of cell renewal.
Strength athletes are often interested in zinc, because it helps the body to build protein and contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. Endurance athletes are interested in zinc, because it supports the body’s defenses and contributes to the normal carbohydrate and acid-base metabolism. Competitive, endurance, strength and brain athletes can benefit from the better the concentration that zinc brings.
It is necessary to travel to all the corners of the world for tournaments, competitions and training camps. That requires a lot of a professional athlete. Zinc Gold is dosed according to the guidelines of the NOC*NSF Team Nutrition and Olympic Panel.
