    multivitamins question!!

    Hi there!! I am an athlete and I ve been feeling really tired these past weeks. My friend told me that I need to take vitamins cuz I train a lot. I have never taken multivitamins before. I just want to know more about multivitamins. Can anyone help me out? I will appreciate it and thanks in advanced.

    ( I feel tired and sleepy. I do sleep 7 to 8 hrs, and when I train I feel really good but when I am done I feel like crap. I ve been feeling this way for about a month and a half and never felt like these before. Can it be lack of vitamins.)

    It could also be over training, also, how are you eating habits?
    Weight loss? Depression? Stress?

    I am fine with my weight. I am 9'10'' 155 pounds 6-7%. Stress: I do have stress but I don't think it is the caused ( could be ). Overtraining: I ve been training for a long time now so and it never happened before till now- could be possible though. Eating habits: I don't diet but I try to eat as clean as possible.

    I don't think the lack of a multi-vitamin is the reason for what you described. Especially given that it's a recent development, something in your diet or training is a more likely explanation. Having said that, a mutli-vitamin is probably the most important single supplement you can take. Which one you choose is largely a matter of personal preference; people on these boards take everything from the Animal Pak to Costco and other generic brands.

    You never know what you can do, until you try to do more than you can.

    i take the costco multi (or centrum multi) *whatever my mom buys* and to answer your question...i don't think lack of vitamins and minerals is the anwser since its a recent thing...but it wouldn't hurt to get a good multi just so u aren't lacking all the vits and minerals needed daily...

    Your fatigue can only be helped by a multi-vitamin if your body is deficient in something which the multi contains which related to energy metabolism. With food processing being as it is today it is quite possible your are running a relative deficiency of one of the B complex if you are also training with great intensity and frequency. Try a multi-vitamin and getting some extra rest.

    If that doesn't work then I suggest you see a doctor.

    Make sure your eating enough and not burning a lot more then you take in. Vitamins to athlete is absolutly essential. Source naturals mega one is a good choice. If it's not lack of nutrients it could be something else.
