Many other vitamins and minerals play very important roles in the diet of an athlete. To date, research has not shown any direct benefit or enhanced performance results from taking added supplements of any specific vitamin or mineral, no matter the size of the athlete or the chosen sport.

Aim for food first. Nutrient rich foods provide all the energy and nutrition your body needs for best performance and are cheaper than sports supplements. If you need a sports supplement, look for those with a complete nutrition label such as sports bars, drinks and gels.
