A powerful tool for your nutritional needs
MULTIVITAMINS AND ONE A DAY VITAMINS
Do we need a multi-vitamin? Unless you can eat 6000 to 7000 calories a day, you probably will not get all the nutrients your body needs. And even with that caloric level, there is no guarantee you are getting all the vitamin E, C, Omega threes, calcium, or B complex, let alone all the trace minerals you need.
Multivitamins help bridge the nutritional gaps found in most people's diets. According to an article published in 2002 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Harvard researchers David H. Fletcher, M.D., MSC and Kathleen M. Fairfield, M.D., reported the following: "Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. It appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements."
So what should we do? The answer is take a balanced multi vitamin. Be careful and do some research before hand or you will be downing things like petroleum. I have not read lately that our cells make better cells with petroleum based products.
A good product will not have all the calcium the body needs in a daily dosage of the multivitamin. Calcium can be hard for the body to use, and if it is the required amount is in one tablet, you can pretty much be guaranteed the tablet is a “horse” pill and is very hard, making it difficult for the body to absorb.
Once you find a multi that has the clinical research behind it, your will see that it has 100% biotin, as well as 100% of the other seven of the b-vitamins. There should not be artificial colors, as once again, our bodies cells don’t need artificial colors. Trace minerals such as chromium, boron,, selenium, manganese and a few others should be present. The label should actually say it has been clinically tested and it has been proven the body can absorb the multivitamin.
Don’t be pulled in by outlandish claims or slick advertising. Look for legitimate science and if there is none, look for a better product.
Remember too that iron is the number one mineral deficiency for some groups but excess iron is not needed by others. Generally, women, children and adolescents need iron. Most men, and women past menopause, do not need iron. A good company gives one a choice.
tI comes down to taking responsibility for your health, don’t give it away to someone else.
