Top 5 Vitamins And Minerals For Muscle Growth

Vitamins and minerals are types of nutrients (also known as micronutrients) that are required in small amounts. Although micronutrients don’t give us energy, they are involved in the metabolic processes that enable us to get energy from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, which are also known as macronutrients. Vitamins and minerals play a crucial role in several body processes, including hormone regulation, wound healing, immune system function, and the ability to fight off infections.

Some of the top Vitamins and Minerals discussed in the video are:

  1. VITAMIN C: Also known as Ascorbic Acid, helps in the absorption of iron in our body. Iron helps in binding hemoglobin and oxygen which results in a better supply of oxygen to the muscles and in turn better functioning of the muscles.

Vitamin C also helps in the production of anabolic hormones and the formation of collagen in our bodies. Collagen is required to keep our bones and muscles strongly connected.

The body cannot keep vitamin C for very long, therefore we also need to include it regularly in our diets.

Some rich sources of Vitamin C are oranges, kiwis, lemons, yellow and red bell peppers, etc.

  1. VITAMIN E: As an antioxidant, vitamin E helps guard your body against the harm caused by free radicals, which can be found in things like radiation or cigarette smoke. As a result, it helps keep your muscle cells healthy.

It is also important for our vision, immune system, and skin. It also helps protect and keep our cell membrane healthy.

Our body’s metabolic processes including muscle growth depend upon how healthy is our cell membrane.

Some of the Vitamin E-rich foods are almonds, avocados, peanuts, etc.

  1. VITAMIN B12: Vitamin B12is a nutrient that helps keep your body’s blood and nerve cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all of your cells. 

Vitamin B12 also helps prevent a blood condition that makes people tired and weak. It aids in the body's production of red blood cells, which are in charge of carrying oxygen to the muscles. As a result, B12 plays a crucial role in the growth of muscle.

Rich sources of Vitamin B12 are meat, egg, fish, milk, etc.

  1. CALCIUM: Compared to other minerals found in our body, Calcium is present in the highest amount. When you perform strength training, your bones get stressed and to deal with that stress it is important to have a good bone density. This bone density is improved through calcium.
    Along with this, calcium plays a crucial role in the process of muscle contraction and keeps your heart and nervous system healthy.

To fulfill the calcium requirement you can include milk, soybean, cheese, curd, etc.

  1. IRON: Iron is the main ingredient of hemoglobin formation. It produces red blood cells in the body which help metabolize fat and protein for muscle growth and recovery.

It is a significant mineral that is necessary for many body processes, including the delivery of energy to cells and the transportation of oxygen in the blood.

Additionally, it is essential to support our immune system's capacity to fight illness.

Some of the iron-rich sources are spinach, eggs, raisins, lentils, etc.

  1. MAGNESIUM: Magnesium helps in the production of energy and protein synthesis. It also helps in increasing strength which helps in improving the performance during exercise.

Magnesium helps the muscle cells to relax after contraction.

Along with this, it helps the body to fight oxidative stress, improves sleep quality, and reduces inflammation.

A few magnesium-rich foods are Chia seeds, oats, bananas, peanuts, etc.
