What are Multivitamins?
Multivitamins are supplements that are made up of many different vitamins and minerals. In addition, some also feature other ingredients like amino acids and herbs. Collectively known as micronutrients, there are twenty-seven different vitamins and minerals in total and each one plays an essential and unique function in the human body. They are also known as essential nutrients because they can’t be produced by your body and must be obtained from dietary sources instead. Most multivitamin supplements contain a variety of these different nutrients however, exactly what vitamins and minerals they contain – as well as the dosage – varies from product to product. Multivitamins also come in many different forms, including:
Chewable gummies Softgel capsules Powder Tablet Liquid
Okay, but do they work?
A healthy diet is important, but as we mentioned, many people are not getting the nutrients they need from food to support their healthy lifestyle. Signs that you may be vitamin deficient include:
Brittle hair and nails Mouth ulcers Bleeding gums Fatigue Hair loss Shortness of breath Dizziness Muscle weakness Rapid heartbeat
The good news is that multivitamins can help! From reducing the risk of heart disease to possibly helping to prevent cancer, multivitamins have been purported to offer many different kinds of health benefits.
Who Should Take Multivitamins?
If you are eating a healthy nutritious diet then chances are you probably don’t need to take a multivitamin. However, the truth is that the nature of modern farming practice is that the quality of nutrients in the soil has been diminished gradually over hundreds of years. This means that less and less of these critical micronutrients are making their way into the food you consume. In fact, to get the same amount of vitamin A from a single orange as your ancestors did, you would need to consume eight oranges today. For this reason alone, everyone could benefit from taking high-quality real food vitamins daily. Here are a few other reasons why multivitamins could be beneficial for you:
If you are at risk or have certain diseases
If you have certain diseases such as anemia and osteoporosis or are simply at a higher risk for disease, you could be more susceptible to a vitamin deficiency. A multivitamin is a great choice to add to your daily routine to make sure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to stay strong all year round.
If you take certain medications
Believe it or not, but some medications can deplete important nutrients – specifically heart medications! Those on these medications may benefit greatly by taking a multivitamin to make up for lost vitamins and minerals.
If you are a picky eater
If you are a picky eater or following a restrictive diet, getting the nutrients your body needs is tough. A daily multivitamin is an easy way to provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to support optimal health.
If you have high stress
Did you know that stress can affect your digestion and nutrient absorption? If you find that you are frequently stressed, a multivitamin might be exactly what you need to help you to feel your best.
Vitamins and nutrients are important! If you are looking to support your healthy lifestyle, a great high-quality multivitamin is a must!
