Vitamins and minerals


Vitamins and minerals are not energy sources in themselves, but because their function is similar to that of hormones, which help break down and synthesize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and promote growth, they are indispensable nutrients for health maintenance and management of the body's systems.
Athletes, who require more energy than non-athletes, must obtain more vitamins and minerals in order to continue to supply the body with adequate energy.
