Why should I take a daily Multivitamin?
Just remember important ingredients that are in most multivitamins like Chromium, Magnesium, Biotin, Thiamin and Zinc. Ingredients your body needs to function properly. I am 39 years old and I will be honest with you. I am just learning how important a daily multivitamin is. A daily multivitamin can help one to lose weight, fill dietary holes, and as one table leg in your journey of staying vibrant and healthy. So I am helping the rest of the world out with this post to further educate the public on why you most of us need or I rather say we should take a good multivitamin.
I will also list a few good options that I use for multivitamins also. I will also give you my testimony of how I have been helped by multivitamins over the years.
MULTIVITAMINS HELP DIETARY DEFICIENCIES
According to the National Institute of Health 7 out of 10 Americans do not get enough nutrients in their diet. Though as a nation and world we have become more and more aware of diseases and health problems like Diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure and more. We have not done a good job of making the dietary changes we need in order to stay as healthy as possible. Especially if our family history makes us more prone to these deadly diseases because of our genes. This lack of nutrition causes for some changes in our thinking, actions, and planning.
SURPRISING BENEFITS OF USING MULTIVITAMINS
Over the years B-12 , antioxidants like OPC-3 and Green tea have been my biggest tools to stay healthy and stay in front of any bad eating habits. But a Multivitamin has never been apart of my regular health regimen until this year. This year when I purchased a multivitamin and noticed I felt better after taking it I said oh ok. I need to keep doing this. Before I often would forget that a multivitamin aides in lower blood pressure, boost immune system, supports a healthy thyroid and more!
Here are a list of the benefits of a good Multivitamin:

WHAT CAN I DO TO BETTER MY NUTRIENT INTAKE?
When you are trying to overcome habits or situations that have been created over the course of a lifetime such as bad nutrition. You really want to take a multi-faceted approach to solving such an deep rooted issue. Understanding that it will be a long process of trial and error. Success and failure. Frustration and breakthroughs. But if you are diligent and smart you shall win at the end of the day. Being smart and adding tasty fruits and vegetables into your diet while not fully eliminating the tasty not so good foods from your meals entirely. Here are some things you can do to better your daily nutrient intake.
No doubt we will be up and down in our journey to eat well. So taking a simple multi-vitamin can sometimes be the easiest and most constant staple of our daily diets.

MULTIVITAMINS COMPENSATE FOR LESS NUTRIENTS IN OUR SOIL AND FOOD
Another great buy less known reason why we should use a daily multivitamin. Over the years our soil and our foods contain lower and lower levels of nutrients. As we eat the same amounts or less amounts of fruits and vegetables. That mean that we are not even staying level. But we are getting worse. Combine that with more sedentary lifestyles. This becomes a certain downward trend. A good multivitamin will help you in this area.
MULTIVITAMINS HELP YOU TO LOSE AND MAINTAIN WEIGHT
With important and great ingredients like Biotin, Chromium, Magnesium, Copper, and Zinc to name a few. Multivitamins are the silent weight busters that help us to slowly lose weight. Or they can be our weight anchors that keep us floating at just the right weight. When our body gets the proper nutrition from the right kinds of foods or a multivitamin it can also help us not crave bad foods.
PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS DEPLETE OUR BODIES OF CRUCIAL NUTRIENTS
Lastly I will mention another reason why using a multivitamin becomes more and more crucial to certain segments of our population. This is because if you are using subscription drugs there is a good chance that these drugs while they are helping you in one way are harming you in another. One way that subscription drugs harm us is by depleting our bodies of important vitamins and minerals. I will do a special post on this because this subject is a interesting one. And it is one that is not spoken of a whole bunch so it deserves our attention. By using a multivitamin you help your body to fill up those vitamin and mineral reserves that are being depleted. Talk to your Dr. about what vitamins and minerals are depleted by the subscription drugs you may use.
SPECIAL VITAMINS FOR YOUR AGE GROUP
Another important area to consider that I will do a special post on as well is age appropriate vitamins. Vitamins should be specialized for your age and your needs. So vitamins come in many different forms. They come in child, adult, men, women and senior. Understanding that we all have different needs at different times. Going even further there are vitamins that are catered for your specific health needs that you can get made to order. I will go into all these areas more deeply in future post.
No matter what vitamin you decide on. Smart Supplementation in addition to other lifestyle changes can enrich and extend your life. While giving you vigor, energy, stamina, and peace of mind that you are doing all you can to be healthy.
Enjoy your day and thanks for reading.
