Living an active lifestyle has many positive benefits to ones health, however, exercise itself leads to increased oxidative stress in the body. This stress results in a greater demand for the intake of vitamins and minerals. Vitamins and minerals are necessary for every day function as they play a major role in the metabolism of food and energy production.
The body requires many different vitamins and minerals to prevent oxidative stress and inflammation. Oxidative stress is when the body lacks the capability to counteract free radicals. These free radicals cause damage to cells in the body and ultimately can lead to pathophysiological issues such as cancer, heart attacks, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. The Journal of American Medical Association recommends all patients take multivitamins because most people do not consume enough vitamins and minerals through their diet (Fletcher & Fairfield, 2002).
