Success as a professional soccer player during the World Cup requires skill, training and heart. A new study found that vitamin D levels could also impact athletic performance.

Researchers from Greece looked at the vitamin D levels of 67 soccer players following the competition season and off season. They found high vitamin D levels related to increased exercise performance both times.

“Vitamin D levels are associated with neuromuscular performance and aerobic capacity in professional soccer players,” researchers concluded.

This adds to existing evidence that both strength and athletic performance are improved in athletes with higher vitamin D levels.

Tap into vitamin D’s exercise benefits by enjoying regular brief exposure to sunshine (before you put on your sunscreen) and taking Res-Q 1250+ every day.
