The Best Vitamins to Support Your Health & Fitness

athlete using Klean Multivitamins to support fitness

The right balance of vitamins and minerals is key to keeping your body functioning at its best.

Vitamins can play a crucial role in everything from helping to convert nutrients into energy to keeping your bones healthy and strong.

The balance of vitamins in your body may also influence your athletic performance. With this in mind, let’s take a look at which vitamins and minerals you should be looking for to support your health and fitness.

Vitamin D

Taking vitamin D supplements can support your athletic performance by improving the quality, duration and frequency of your training sessions.

If you primarily train in the gym or another indoor setting, you’ll naturally be exposed to less sunlight (most people’s main source of vitamin D) than people who train outdoors.

Some foods naturally contain vitamin D, such as oily fish and egg yolks, but if you’re following a strict eating plan, you can increase your vitamin D intake by using a supplement.

Our Klean-D 125 mcg tablets contain natural vitamin D3, making them a great option for athletes who usually train indoors.

Vitamin D supplementation may also help to support your musculoskeletal strength, as well as your immune health.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral rather than a vitamin, but it plays an important role in maintaining normal bone structure, maintaining normal nerve and muscle function, and in producing energy in the body.

Leafy green vegetables, brown rice and nuts are all good sources of magnesium, but Klean Magnesium provides an easy, convenient way for you to increase your intake without the need for loads of food prep, meaning you’ve got more time to focus on your training.

Each serving of Klean Magnesium contains 120mg of magnesium glycinate, which helps to support your body’s natural ability to produce and use energy (ATP). This can be important for muscle function, protein synthesis and for helping to improve the recovery time required between workouts.

Klean Magnesium is a great addition to your daily regimen to help you make the most out of each workout and be ready for the next.

Omega-3 Supplements

Our bodies cannot make the omega-3 they need in order to function properly by themselves, which is why so many people choose to take omega-3 supplements.

Omega-3 can have multiple health benefits, including:

  • Supporting cardiovascular health
  • Helping to maintain brain health
  • Providing support to joint health

Klean Omega is designed to provide support in each of these areas. When you’re training hard, your joints and muscles (including your heart and lungs) come under a lot of strain. Klean Omega contains pure fish oil in triglyceride form to support your cardiovascular, neurological and joint health while you train.

Fitness Multivitamins

Multivitamins are a great, convenient way to consume multiple vitamins at a time to support your health and fitness.

Our Klean Multivitamin formula has been created with the unique needs of athletes in mind, providing a blend of vitamins and minerals to support optimal health to help you to get closer to peak performance.

Klean Multivitamin tablets are made using a unique fruit and vegetable blend, as well as antioxidants that aren’t typically found in other multivitamins to help support everything from your metabolism to muscle restoration after your workout.

Antioxidants for Fitness

Antioxidants play a vital role in fighting oxidative stress within the body. Oxidative stress is typically caused by free radicals, which are unstable atoms that can latch onto cells, leading them to become damaged – over time, this could affect your performance.

Athletes also put their bodies under a lot of strain, which can release extra free radicals throughout the body, potentially furthering any damage.

Foods rich in antioxidants include berries, kale, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, garlic and turmeric, to name just a few.

However, an easier way to increase your antioxidant intake during training is to use a supplement such as Klean Antioxidant.

Our Klean Antioxidant formula contains extract of the maqui berry superfruit, a natural source of vitamins and antioxidants, as well as astaxanthin, which is known for anti-ageing support.

It also includes a patented combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid, which can help to protect against cellular damage during high-intensity training.

Every Klean product is NSF Certified for Sport®, so you can trust in the supplements you’re taking.
