Im an individual who sweats PERFUSLY. I noticed that my mood and mental clarity, when going about my daily routine, gets affected if I do not properly replenish my loss in vital minerals and nutrients. Ill tend to feel anxious or nervous somewhat..

I think its a health risk that is overlooked when training rigerously in any martial art or sport.

Do any of you take supplements specifically for training and what kind?

I drink a protein shake both for calories and added protein. I have ADHD, and sometimes I forget to eat. I will be hyperfixated on something or in a fugue and then suddenly 8 hours has passed. In general, I prefer to get my macro and micro-nutrients through food, and in the past meal prepping has done well for me because I can plan these macro/micro balances in advance. Multi-vitamins in the past haven't done much for me. Mostly, I just track my calories to make sure that I am eating enough to be healthy. I work out enough that I'm not trying to get in a range, just trying to get over a minimum number.

I do whey protein shakes as well, with creatine added in. I don't currently do a multivitamin.

I take vitamin supplements, but it's rather a health issue of mine than something specifically for training. My bowel doesn't properly absorb all nutrients, so I have to supplement. Electrolytes can be helpful after much sweating. As for protein - whey protein, but not always. I love meat and dairy anyway, so there is no point.
