Bodybuilding or Workout requires a lot of energy and stamina and for that our body needs more nutrients as well as vitamins.
Most of this nutrients are available in specific foods and a minority or few of Vitamins that our body requires are available in the nature and we don’t need to take any supplement for that as you can get it free just what you need to do is lay down on the beach and get a sun bath to get your bones stronger and boost your energy during exercises, i have selected in this article to speak about Vitamin D and its various benefits on the body.
1: Vitamin D Plays A Role In Neuromuscular Functioning: Vitamin D regulates neuromuscular functioning (pertaining to the nervous and muscular systems) and impacts protein synthesis. Studies suggest that people with serum Vitamin D levels below 30 nmol/l have decreased strength, weakness and muscle wasting. And those with Vitamin D receptor polymorphisms (a genetic variation) have alterations in muscle functioning.
2:Vitamin D Is Vital For Immune Health: Vitamin D affects some aspects of immunity including the development of certain autoimmune diseases. How does this relate to muscle tissue? The symptoms of each autoimmune disease vary tremendously. From cold hands to alterations in insulin regulation to feeling fatigued, many of the symptoms can make you feel downright crummy at times. And when you feel bad, training may be the last thing on your mind. Or, even if you make it to the gym, your workouts may suffer.
3:Low Vitamin D May Lead To Fatty Muscles: When you think of muscle tissue, you probably aren’t thinking of fat infiltration. But, people with insufficient or deficient levels of Vitamin D are likely to have fatty muscles. In a recently published cross-sectional study, 59% of girls aged 16-22 in California (one of the sunniest states in the U.S.) had insufficient (< 29 ng/ml) levels of Vitamin D and 24% were deficient (< 20 ng/ml).
And, the researchers concluded a strong inverse relationship between Vitamin D status and percent muscle fat. Better Vitamin D status, less fat infiltration in muscle. Deficient or insufficient Vitamin D status = greater likelihood of fat infiltration in muscle. Fat infiltration in muscle tissue affects strength and power and can impair physical functioning
4:Vitamin D Is Important For Bone Health: Vitamin D’s impact on bone health is perhaps the most well known function of Vitamin D. In fact, it is this relationship that led to vitamin D fortification in milk. Prior to fortification, rickets, a disease in children due to vitamin D deficiency and characterized by soft, weak deformed bones, was a major public health issue.
In adults, Vitamin D deficiency leads to osteomalacia, soft bones. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and helps maintain calcium concentrations in the blood as well as mineralization of bone. What does this have to do with muscle? Bone pulls on muscle making it stronger. If you want strong bones, you better have strong muscles and vice versa!
Vitamin D is one of the most needed vitamins for the muscles as well as our bones indeed its a key player in hormonal balance as luck of vitamin D can be a cause of Testosterone decreasing which lower our energy and effect the mood .
Sunshine exposure is not just for boosting Vitamin D in fact it helps to burn some of the fats especially the one beneath the skin and give that thin bright skin color.
So make sure you spend sometime under the sun especially during Winter as during summer we all knows its time to show off your body because you must spend more time on the beach.
