Vitamin C is perhaps the most important of all ... It's responsible for keeping thousands of bodily functions running smoothly. There are several vitamins of which an athlete would be better off taking over 10 times the recommended daily value for optimal performance and recovery.
You could just take a multivitamin several times a day, but the problem is that you don't want to really mega-dose the fat soluble vitamins like vitamin A. That can be trouble. I personally take 5 multivitamins a day (to make sure I get enough magnesium and at least twice the recommended value of zinc) plus calcium, C and B complex. I've noticed a big difference in less soreness and wounds healing faster.
Getting your vitamins and minerals sorted out is more of a long term solution, though. Still, I think most people don't pay enough attention to it. If you're going to push yourself hard in some physical activity, getting enough vitamins and minerals can greatly aide in your progress.
