Whether young or old, we all strive for optimum health. We all want to feel, and look, our best and inner health is a significant portion of that equation. But knowing that you want to be healthy is only the first step of any person’s health journey. Upon closer examination, what is found are endless discussions and evaluations as to how best to achieve this goal. The first debate to conquer is centered around the multivitamin. Hailed by some as unnecessary, many nutritionists and other top experts pronounce the multivitamin as an essential building block of good health. So how do you know who’s right? Let’s take a look at a few of the unknown reasons why a multivitamin may just be one of the most powerful health tools in your arsenal.
Boosting the balanced diet.
A good, balanced diet is said to include all of the vitamins and vital minerals that your body needs for optimal functioning on a day-to-day basis, but let’s face it. How many of us succeed at eating a good and balanced diet every day for months or even years on end? Not a lot of us. Even if you are one of the disciplined few that succeeds at accomplishing this milestone, the natural foods that are available to us today are not of the same quality as what could be found even one hundred years ago. Produce has been genetically modified to include less seeds, or to look fresher, plumper, and more colorful. Furthermore processed foods that promise to be ‘natural’ are anything but. A strong multivitamin will powerfully fill in the gaps for which nature’s food was originally intended.
De-stress? What’s That?
Many of our customers at our Buckhead health food store fall into this category. There is the tight schedule, either balancing a job with a personal life, or raising the kids with your sanity. Constantly being on the go can lead to stress that depletes your body of vital B vitamins and hinders your body’s ability to absorb the nutrients that are found in your food. These depleted nutrients are necessary for your organs need to function and thrive. In order to keep yourself invigorated and full of energy as you live a busy life, a well-rounded multivitamin is a must.
The Weight Is Not Coming Off!
Another key reason to take a well-formulated multivitamin may be a surprise to many who are trying to lose weight and not having success. If it seems that you are doing everything you are supposed to be doing to shed the pounds but it’s just not working, a vitamin deficiency may be to blame. Many key nutrients are required for the body to metabolize fat into energy including Vitamin C, Zinc, Thaimine, Panthothenic Acid and Iron just to name a few. If you are hitting the gym and eating clean and still are not seeing results, you may want to step up your nutrition game, and your weight loss results, with a multivitamin.
