Nutrient D and calcium are both imperative to building solid bones and forestalling osteoporosis. There is acceptable information showing Vitamin D’s significance in forestalling wounds and stress cracks. Enhancing calcium may not be fundamental if you are getting an even eating routine with dairy and strengthened food sources.

But all these will come at a later stage. The first and the foremost thing that should be done to an athlete to make him injury-free is to do a blood test, gene test, food allergy test to determine what he or she needs, and last but not the least is to change an athlete’s psychology towards eating habits.
