what is the best vitamin to give a 15 year old amateur boxer

This answer was rated:

what is the best vitamin to give a 15 year old amateur boxer athlete? When he fights he has to come down in weight.
HI--not sure what you mean by the weight point--can you clarify that please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

He fights at 119lbs. when he is not fighting he goes up to like 125-127lbs

OK but what is it about vitamins that you think might help him?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Well he sometimes gets tired easy I know that the doctor had gave me vitamin d to give him a while back. I just want him to be good with vitamins as he also is a picky eater


 

I see. In that case he should take a daily multivitamin, perhaps Centrum, along with a vitamin B complex and extra vitamin C. Vitamin D as a supplement would be fine if his vitamin D levels were actually low, but one can overdose on vitamin D if they aren't. Omega 3 fatty acid would also be a good supplement.

DO you know of one that I can get all in one or should I ask his doctor for some?


 

Well, the multivitamin like Centrum basically has all the recommended daily allowances for all of them but you can also get over the counter B complex, C, and omega 3 without a prescription. I see no need for prescription vitamins here.
