Whether you want to increase your overall fitness or being rehabilitation on an injury, swimming is the perfect sport for you. Here at Myvitamins, we’ve complied our top picks of vitamins to help you ‘just keep swimming…’

Vitamin B

The resistance offered by swimming is 12 times as dense as air, so keeping your energy levels up whilst in the pool is important to ensure maximum performance and endurance. Studies show that individuals with a deficient of B vitamins can suffer from tiredness and muscle cramps, so our  Essential Vitamin B Complex provides an optimal blend of B Vitamins in one convenient tablet. B Vitamins also contribute to the normal metabolism of energy, cognitive function, immune support and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; essential for those tricky last lengths.

Vitamin C

In most swimming pools chlorine is used to sanitise and reduce levels of bacteria; however this can have negative side effects for swimmers. Many experience red eyes, dry skin, hair to dry out and even wrinkles. Vitamin C helps neutralize chlorine and undo the damage of chlorine exposure, with some even making a solution to run into  Vitamin C is a naturally occurring antioxidant that has many important functions within the body. A healthy dose of Vitamin C can contribute to the normal function of the immune system as well as supporting the health of skin, dental hygiene, bones and joints through the normal formation of collagen. Additionally, Vitamin C aids normal energy metabolism, reducing the tiredness and fatigue from training in the pool.
