Birth Control can affect your sports performance!

For many women of childbearing age, oral contraceptive (birth control) use is as routine as brushing their teeth.

For many athletes, birth control is welcomed to help control symptoms they may experience that affect performance and also help predict their cycle.

Though various contraceptives are available and used, oral birth control remains the most prevalent among women.

It has been known since the 1970s that birth control medication, used by over 46 million women annually in the US, depletes the body of essential vitamins and minerals!

Oral birth control is documented to cause deficiencies in:

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B12



Vitamin C




Vitamin E


These depleted critical nutrients are the same nutrients needed for energy, optimal sports performance, and even fertility.

If you take birth control pills, I encourage you to look into restoring the nutritional deficiencies oral contraceptives cause to give your body optimal health.
