Do I really require a multivitamin?

Multivitamins are filled with nutrients-but if we eat healthy, shouldn't we be getting all those nutrients through our diets? According to the Stanford School of Public Wellness, an eating plan that includes lot of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, excellent protein and healthier fats should offer most of the nutrition required for health. Still, many Americans are unable to get micronutrient which is recommended by the American Institution of Medicine, especially natural vitamins like D and E.  The Stanford experts advise that "A daily multi-vitamin is a cheap nutrition indemnity exposure"

Although practitioners recommend an excellent multi-vitamin for a variety of health goals. For instance, "Adults with athletic and active lifestyles can benefit from a multivitamin's capability to repair tissue, replace electrolytes and offer antioxidants to stop toxic damage" says Age Willis, herbalist and nutritionist at our downtown Boulder store.

For people undergoing considerable volumes of pressure, Age says a multi-vitamin can help flush pressure hormones from our bodies, increase energy and help our bodies better adapt. "An excellence multi-vitamin is also the best choice for those on a controlled eating plan or those with digestive complaints" says Age (such as vegans or those who eat a gluten-free diet), since those conditions can limit your capability to consumption all of the healthier value you need.

"Medications such as antibiotics sleep aids, pain killers and oral contraceptives can reduce nutrients in our bodies," says Don Summerfield, Pharmaca’s v. p. of integrative health.

Quoting Summerfield "Remember that a multi-vitamin won't compensate for a poor diet-but it can help fill healthier breaks in a excellent one". Ultimately, it is about eating a good and balanced, varied eating plan must meet our nutrition needs.
