As runners' we make particularly high demands on our bodies. Our bodies are built to cope with these demands IF we provide it with the nutrients we need for optimal functionality. In our experience athletes are pretty good at focusing (obsessing in some cases) on the macro-nutrients (carbs, protein and calories) but micro-nutrients are frequently overlooked.
Below is a table showing all the vitamins and minerals which need to remain at acceptable levels in all runners to stay healthy and keep up the training you need to.
