Exercise and Vitamin Intake

Exercise and Vitamin Intake
When one engages in regular exercise, he or she may suddenly find themselves dealing with muscular cramping, discomfort, soreness, and pain. Sometimes an individual will suffer from unwanted spasms which are brought on by extensive exercise; this pain typically occurs in the individual's upper and lower extremities. Spasms can prove quite bothersome and can last in duration from a couple of seconds to a few minutes or more. These cramps and spasms can be indicative of excessive strain, but they can also be an indication that the individual needs more vitamins and minerals, too.

Every individual needs to consume adequate nutrients and to get the recommended daily allowance of minerals and vitamins that he or she needs. The latter fact is true particularly in the case of individuals that engage in frequent exercise. Vitamins and minerals can be gained by a quality diet. Individuals should eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals, and they should also consume meats and other products high in protein.

Sometimes a good diet just isn't enough though, and it will be necessary to take a vitamin supplement which gives the individual the vitamins he or she needs to maintain health and to keep muscular cramping at bay. Everyone needs Vitamin A, B, C, D, and K in their diets, and a good source of potassium, iron, magnesium, and calcium for bone health are also recommended. An important vitamin that also helps in fending off muscular cramping during and after exercise is Vitamin E, as well.

If muscular spasms and cramping continue to be a problem or prove to be ongoing, the individual may want to ease up on the amount of exercise he or she is engaging in. Overly strenuous exercises or too much exercise can lead to bodily strain, pain, and discomfort. Injuries can result and long term problems with chronic pain can also occur from exercises that are being performed incorrectly or too extensively.
