About Vitamin D3 supplement
Why Vitamin D3 is important for the athlete’s health?
Known as the vitamin of the sun, vitamin D plays many roles in keeping the body healthy. It has an effect on several metabolic functions, including energy production and fortification of the immune system.
A functional training athlete has a breathing capacity that is more developed than that of someone leading a sedentary lifestyle. He can use 12 to 20 times more oxygen per minute than someone who doesn’t exercise. This is good because it increases the athlete’s training capacity, but it also has a downside in the sense that more oxygen means more free radical production, resulting in more oxidative cell damage.
Free radicals are unstable molecules, responsible for the destruction of body cells. About 5% of the oxygen you inhale each time you breathe is transformed into free radicals that are known as superoxide radicals. If free radical formation is not countered by the adequate intake of antioxidants, it is the athlete’s health that suffers. Multiple scientific studies show the importance of vitamin D in the fight against these invasive agents. It neutralizes free radicals and contributes to the decrease of inflammatory processes, thereby keeping the integrity of body cells intact.
Essential for the absorption of calcium
Typical functional training movements, such as cleans and snatches, exert great pressure on the joints. It is crucial for everyone who practices this kind of training to make sure that their bones are in good health, as fragile bones and joints are almost certain to lead to injuries. Calcium is essential for healthy bones, and vitamin D is essential for efficient calcium absorption in the body.
Vitamin D increases muscle power
How does vitamin D affect muscular strength? Everything! Researchers tested muscular strength and power in 2 groups of athletes with a similar amount of muscle mass, and the test results were unmistakable yet surprising: Athletes with less vitamin D were shown to have less power than those with higher vitamin D levels in their blood.
Further research pointed out that vitamin D improves fast twitch muscle fiber contraction. As vitamin D receptors in the muscles are plenty, the more of this vitamin is present in the blood, the higher becomes the increase in muscle fiber contraction capacity.
Vitamin D3 supplement promotes muscle glycogen replenishment
Only recently it was discovered that vitamin D3 supplement is essential for the body to be able to produce GLUT-4, a protein responsible for glucose transport. Low vitamin D levels mean that this protein is produced in smaller amounts. Without GLUT-4, the body’s capacity for glycogen replenishment is significantly reduced.

But I already catch a lot of sun often…
Do you really believe you don’t need any vitamin D because you get enough sun exposure as it is? If that were true, how would you explain that an estimated 75% of the world population has a vitamin D deficit?
It is true that our bodies can produce vitamin D as a result of exposure to sunlight. Still, unless you live in Congo or Ecuador and you go about shirtless for at least an hour a day, this exposure is bound to be insufficient to ensure adequate vitamin D production.
