Vitamin D3 has been considered an essential vitamin in sports nutrition for years, which is why it is recognized as a must-have supplement at TPW™ Towers today. Along with its immune boosting properties, Vitamin D3 also contributes to overtraining prevention and recovery. Vitamin D is found in foods such as oily fish, milk and eggs, although to meet your daily requirements, taking a tablet form, such as TPW™ Vitamin D3 2500iu tablets, is much more convenient.
Now specifically for athletes and those who train, when working at 90% of your maximum heart rate or near exhaustion your immune system can become suppressed. This is because your oxygen usage skyrockets which in turn causes an increase in lactic acid accumulation in the muscles, which in turn causes your body to pull alkaline reserves from bones and other mineral dense sources. It’s what’s known as an ‘immune crash’ and it’s during this time that your body is susceptible to viruses, bacteria and overtraining. Vitamin D3 has been shown to help combat this since it plays a crucial role in activating the body’s 'T' Cells (the cells in the body that seek and destroy anything ‘foreign’ that enters the body such as bad bacteria or a virus). Vitamin D3 is therefore a great supplement for those who want to prevent overtraining.
Vitamin D3 has also been shown to play a role in reducing inflammation in body tissues, again a common problem of overtraining and intense exercise. This is especially important for athletes who undergo heavy, compound movements on a regular basis or anyone who continually loads their body above its habitual level during training or competition.
Furthermore, more recently there’s been promising evidence that suggests Vitamin D3 levels are associated with the maintenance of power and strength by potentially increasing the size and number of fast twitch fibres. This means that Vitamin D3 supplementation could not only improve immune function and prevent overtraining, but actually have performance enhancing properties too.
Whilst Vitamin D3 is often used as a permanent supplement in most athlete’s nutrition plan, it’s particularly important during winter training since it’s during this period when the body can become deficient in it due to lack of sunlight. This is why it’s recommended to take Vitamin D3 in the months leading up to the winter so it can accumulate in the body and therefore boost immune health.
Whilst studies vary on the adequate amount of Vitamin D levels in the body, the most often cited amount is 2000iu per day.
