Here is a recent study by researchers at Oregon State University that suggests a B-vitamin deficiency can result in lowered athletic performance. B-vitamins like B-6, B-12 and folate are involved in your body’s conversion of proteins and sugars into energy. They are also used during the tissue repairing process.When you are short on these vitamins, your joggling activities could lead to more nutrients lost in sweat and urine making it more difficult for your body to repair and heal itself.
