Vitamins are essential nutrients that we have to get from our diet - our bodies can’t make them. They perform a variety of super important functions to help our body perform at its best. Vitamin supplements are specifically formulated to boost your daily vitamin intake in case you’re not getting everything you need from your diet or have any deficiencies.
Taking vitamin tablets is an easy and super-efficient way of upping your intake and making up for any deficiencies you may have. Vitamins have a number of roles including helping maintain normal function of the immune system, energy metabolism, skin, eye and bone health and much more. Correcting any deficiencies you have will lead to improvements in these areas, and will help you feel your best.
Vitamin tablets and vitamin capsules are the most popular types. However, you can also add vitamin powders to shakes and smoothies to cover all bases. We offer a range of single vitamin supplements, such as Vitamin D, or multivitamin combinations, so you can tailor your supplements to your personal requirements.
They’re suitable for anyone who’s not getting their recommended daily amount from their diet or has discovered deficiencies with specific tests. It’s particularly important for people eating specific types of diets, such as vegans and vegetarians, to make sure they’re getting enough of certain vitamins either through their diet or through supplementation. In the UK, it’s recommended to take a Vitamin D supplement between the months of October and March. However, remember it’s not helpful to exceed the recommended doses as our body won’t absorb vitamins beyond its capacities.
Vitamin B12 is an absolute must. Adults only need 2.4 micrograms per day but it’s vital to get them as our ability to absorb vitamin B12 decreases as we age. Vitamin D is also key as it facilitates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and this is something vegans have in common with omnivores.
Vitamins are essential nutrients that we have to get from our diet - our bodies can’t make them. They perform a variety of super important functions, including supporting our immune system, maintaining our bone and skin health and playing a role in energy metabolism. It’s important to get enough of each vitamin as each one performs a vital function in your body.
You need to make sure you’re getting enough of every vitamin, whatever age you are. As we grow older, the ability to absorb and process nutrients solely from our diet won’t be the same as when we were younger.
Supplementing vitamins won’t make a huge difference when trying to build muscle unless you’re also making changes to your overall diet and lifestyle. Some vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and vitamin D, play a role in muscle function. However, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough of every vitamin in order for your body to function at its best. It’s also important to remember it’s not helpful to exceed the daily recommended doses, as our body won’t absorb beyond its daily capacity.
The best vitamins
Vitamin D3 Tablets
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins in your diet, but you can only get it from sunlight, meaning it can be difficult to get enough during the long, dark winter months. That’s probably why these Vitamin D3 Tablets are consistent best sellers for us, providing a massive dose of Vitamin D3 in a highly bioavailable form to keep your body nourished all year round.
Vitamin C Powder
Vitamin C just might be the most important vitamin in your entire diet, supporting your immune system function, fighting oxidation in cells, and contributing to a wide range of mental, physical and bodily functions. This Vitamin C powder is one of our customers’ top-rated products because it’s easy to mix into other formulas, especially pre-workouts and DIY multivitamin powder blends.
B Vitamin Complex Tablets
We always recommend B Vitamins as part of any training regime, and with good reason. B Vitamins contribute to a wide range of processes in the body, but they’re probably best known for contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue (B3 and B6 in particular). These B Vitamin Complex Tablets give you every single B Vitamin in a single dose, including B12, which is extremely important for your diet and can only be obtained from meat and dairy—making it extra important for vegan and vegetarian athletes.
