Vitamin b12 is an essential, water soluble vitamin that is critical for general health. Deficiencies of this vitamin can lead to many complications and contribute to various health related issues. US Vitamin Injections now discusses possible athletic benefits of vitamin b12 supplementation.
Athletes typically place greater physical, emotional and physiological strain on their bodies. It is the nature of athletics to push past barriers, challenge oneself and try to compete at their highest potential possible.
While athletes typically follow a balanced diet in order to maintain muscle, lose fat and improve speed the extra work involved often taxes the body, the immune system and calls for additional nutrients. An article written by the University of Illinois states "A lack of just one nutrient is a disadvantage to your body, just as losing a player to the penalty box is a disadvantage for a hockey team."
The US Vitamin Injections article discusses in detail how adding additional b12 through diet or supplementation may improve performance for those competing in sport.
With the information presented an athlete can look into their performance and determine if adding the vitamin may be of value. Some reported benefits include: Focus and concentration, energy, metabolic improvement and even fighting off illness.
US Vitamin Injections is a US based supplier of vitamin injections including b12 shots as well as other popular weight loss or general health related products.
