One of the minerals, which are worth noting in the planning of supplementation, is phosphorus - a necessary element in the formation of highly energetic ATP packages and activation of some of the B group vitamins. Other minerals are sodium and potassium, particularly important in the regulation of water and electrolyte balance, acid-alkaline balance and osmotic pressure. Iodine is worth noting as it plays a significant role in metabolism, also manganese is necessary for transformations of cholesterol and cobalt, without which synthesis of vitamin B12 would be impossible. These components are particularly important minerals during the long, frequent, intense exercising, because these elements are lost with sweat in significant quantities and there is need for quick replenish of them.
