Do you need a multivitamin?
Clearly, the best way to get nutrients such as vitamins and minerals is through a healthy diet.
Fruits and vegetables, legumes, lean meats, fish and dairy products are among the foods most dense in nutrients for maintaining daily health.
The vitamins and minerals found in these foods are in a form that our bodies recognize and easily absorb.
While this is the ideal situation, a multivitamin can play a role in our daily lives for a number of reasons:
• Daily diet realities: While the diet outlined above sounds wonderful, it’s rarely reality.
Most of us deal with busy schedules and don’t always eat the way we should.
Processed foods that are high in unhealthy fats and sugars, dominate our culture and are designed to appeal to our taste buds not our nutritional health.
A multivitamin can act as insurance to make sure our body is getting the base amount of vitamins and minerals every day for optimal health, no matter what direction the day’s diet goes.
• Stress: The modern Canadian lifestyle is stressful.
Balancing family and work demands combined with insufficient sleep and relaxation leaves our bodies, minds and immune systems vulnerable to running down.
Getting consistent nutritional support can help us get through unexpected or prolonged stressful periods.
• High performance: Those of us who are active and working out physically (or mentally) at high levels demand more out of our bodies.
This extra activity uses up more nutrients.
A multivitamin can help to top up even a healthy diet to help our body perform at its upper potential.
