How Fueling Your DNA Can Improve Your Athletic Performance

Vitamins, Minerals, And Exercise

In this section, we'll focus on a specific area of interest for athletic performance: vitamins and minerals within the context of physical exercise. We’re providing links to blog posts for related topics further down on this page, too. Let’s begin.

Vitamins and minerals are essential for various metabolic processes throughout the body. When it comes to exercise and athletic performance, they regulate many chemical reactions such as energy metabolism, oxygen transfer, and tissue repair. Some athletes have increased nutrient requirements if they have excessive losses in their sweat or urine.

Sports medicine and advanced dietetics have long focused on how to achieve and maintain peak levels of performance for college, semi-pro, and professional athletes. Findings there and from the broader spectrum of nutritional science paint a helpful picture for anyone pursuing well-being and fitness through sustained physical activity.

The pursuit of physical fitness is not a fad. For some, high-intensity training and endurance performance is a measure of achievement that’s core to their well-being. Still, many more others pursue more moderate levels of exercise training for their overall health care and maintenance of body weight. Runners, cyclists, and gym members participating in aerobic exercise, swimming, or weight training all make up the fitness universe.

For athletes of all levels, certain nutrients are commonly lost during exercise. If you’re physically active, be particularly diligent to ensure you’re getting adequate amounts of B vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Iron, Calcium, and electrolytes.

Key Nutrients To Fuel Your Workout

Here's a short summary of the vitamins and minerals that are important for those seeking to improve their physical performance and are keeping a balanced diet in their sights. (You can read our complete blog article on this topic HERE).

What About Vitamin and Mineral Supplements?

Dietary supplements can help ensure energy production and avoid the depletion of core nutrients. As always, consult your doctor or dietitian about your exercise plans and consider supplements as part of your nutrition regimen when appropriate.

The days of low-quality, over-the-counter, one-size-fits-all vitamins and supplements are over. GenoPalate's custom supplement offering caters to your specific needs, uses high-quality ingredients your body can readily absorb, and eliminates a cabinet full of bottles. Learn More

Very impressed with the technology! Taking my AncestryDNA raw data and coming up with a customized list of foods that are best for me and my genetic makeup, is awesome! Also liked the customized vitamin recommendations so I know what my particular body needs are!

My GenoPalate results helped answer the percentage of carb/fats/protein that I should be eating to optimize my health and foods that meet with my genetics. The education is great and it gives you a plan and specifics on how to change your diet. If you use your GenoPalate results with Fitbit like I do to track your calories, it works awesome!

From The GenoPalate Glossary

Antioxidants are compounds that protect the body’s tissues and cells against damage and oxidation from unstable compounds such as free radicals. Antioxidants are good for a wide variety of individuals, and can be beneficial for many different health conditions. By limiting oxidative stress, antioxidants help cut down on irreversible cell damage, limiting our risk factors for diseases like cancer, heart disease, emphysema, Parkinson’s disease, and many more.

Digestive enzymes are a group of enzymes that break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the body from foods eaten to help with absorption. The main types of digestive enzymes are proteases which break down proteins, amylases which break down carbohydrates, and lipases which break down fats. Read more

Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells that binds to and carries oxygen from the lungs to the cells throughout the body. Maintaining normal levels of hemoglobin is extremely important. If hemoglobin levels are too low, it puts the structure of our red blood cells at risk. Red blood cells that are improperly shaped cannot flow freely through our blood vessels, making it harder for our body to get the oxygen it needs. Read more
