Exercise such as a marathon, ultramarathon or triathlon demands unusual amounts of energy. The biochemistry of energy production in the human body is known to use vitamins and minerals during such events. Vitamins and minerals are required for many of the catalysts that promote chemical reactions of energy production.
Choline is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is necessary for proper conduction of signals from the brain to muscles. Studies show that marathoners have improved performance with supplemental choline.
A few specific amino acids are needed for specialized reactions during exercise. Important hormones such as adrenaline contain the amino acid L-Tyrosine. N-Acetyl-Cysteine provides a key component for the anti-oxidant glutathione. L-Arginine acts as a source of nitric oxide for improved blood flow to muscles.
Exercise produces large amounts of tissue-damaging free radicals that are formed when oxygen is consumed in large amounts during exercise. Vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, and alpha Lipoic Acid are natural anti-oxidant defenders.
How can an athlete obtain these useful nutrients before a run? They are present in nutritious food, but athletes often eat very lightly before an event, or may choose foods that are lacking in vitamins and minerals.
