Vitamin B is a water soluble that plays an important role in cell metabolism. Simply put, these vitamins help the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. They also help form red blood cells.
You can find B Vitamins from:
- Dairy Products
- Leafy Green Vegetables
Female athletes need to increase their consumption of Vitamin B because they are using a higher level of energy. The higher level of energy is absorbing the Vitamin B found in your body so you need to increase the amount of Vitamin B you are taking to compensate for the levels being used during running/races.
