Endurance Athletes and Vitamin D: An Overview
In addition to water and electrolytes, adequate Vitamin D is also important to endurance success. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked. I workout in the sun, so I don’t need to worry about Vitamin D, you may think.
It’s easy to fall prey to this trap, but nevertheless, you’d be wrong. Vitamin D is so commonly overlooked that the U.S.A. Triathlon organization calls it the “missing ingredient for triathletes.” Why call it “missing”? Bruce Hamilton, MD of the Qatar Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Hospital in Doha, told USAT a sobering statistic: “We screen over 2,000 athletes per year and have found that 90 – 95 percent are vitamin D deficient,” Hamilton said.
Other estimates for U.S. adults are more in the 70 to 80 percent range, but that’s still dangerously high, given that Vitamin D is required for a huge range of biochemical processes. In this blog post, we want to highlight the reasons runners need to pay attention to their Vitamin D consumption. Additionally, we’d like to provide information on:
1. How your body uses Vitamin D to absorb minerals, preserve bone health and maintain muscle strength.
2. Why endurance athletes should care about Vitamin D, especially when it comes to exercise performance.
3. How to identify and manage a Vitamin D deficiency
4. How YOU can incorporate this knowledge into your daily nutrition.
The endothelial cells lining blood vessels form a tight barrier, which is weakened (permeabilized) by inflammation. Vitamin C tightens the endothelial barrier and maintains its integrity during inflammation, but the mechanisms for vitamin C action remain unclear.
James May, M.D., and colleagues explored whether and how vitamin C can stabilize the endothelial barrier using human umbilical vein endothelial cells. They reported in the Aug. 28 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistrythat vitamin C prevented increased permeability induced by thrombin, an inflammatory stimulus.
