It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and exercise while taking growth hormone. My research has shown that taking vitamins during this cycle significantly improves well-being. It is necessary to choose the right vitamin supplements, to study their features and differences from conventional complexes. Please note that vitamins may have contraindications, so you should consult your doctor before taking them. This way you will be able to eliminate possible negative consequences.
Varieties of vitamins for athletes
If a person goes in for sports 4-5 times a week and at the same time takes growth hormones, one should select enhanced vitamin complexes. Due to physiological characteristics, female and male organisms need different vitamins and minerals, as well as different dosages. With little physical activity, when sports are held 1-2 times a week, a regular vitamin and mineral complex is suitable, which will meet the needs of the body. The following types of vitamins are commonly used while taking growth hormone:
- Monovitamins - contain one component, for example, C, D, or B9. They are taken when it is necessary to replenish the deficiency of a particular vitamin in the body.
- Multivitamins or vitamin-mineral complexes - in addition to vitamins, they often contain some minerals. These supplements are taken to support the body and strengthen the immune system.
The course of taking vitamins is selected depending on the duration of the course of taking growth hormone and the intensity of physical activity. With high activity, the body expends more energy and nutrients. A lot of mineral salts also come out with sweat. The optimal time to take vitamin supplements is every day in the morning after meals. Supplements, in which the daily serving is several capsules or tablets, can be taken several times a day - morning and evening.
When athletes need to take vitamins
The body of an athlete needs the same vitamins and nutrients as people who are not related to sports. The main signs that it is time to take vitamins are apathy, worsening sleep, heavy lifting in the morning, distracted attention, memory impairment. It is especially important to monitor your own well-being during the course of growth hormone. You should not drink vitamins on an empty stomach - active ingredients can irritate the stomach lining and cause discomfort.
Vitamins are taken in courses at least twice a year - in spring and autumn. This is done to support the body in the midst of seasonal illness and to strengthen weakened immunity. The course of administration usually lasts a month, vitamins are taken daily. Depending on the manufacturer and composition, a serving can be 1-2 tablets or capsules. Professional athletes can take vitamins more often. It is important to remember that an excess of vitamins is just as harmful as a deficiency, so you should consult your doctor before taking it. It is also not necessary to exceed the dosage recommended by the manufacturer.
