Staying healthy is at the top of our minds and a multivitamin can help with that goal.
Good nutrition is one of the best ways to stay healthy. Vitamins and minerals provide us with a good foundation for our health. While vitamins and minerals are found in our food, very few people actually get what they need just from their diet.
A doctor and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, Meir Stampfer, pointed out, “Many Americans do not even come close to getting what they need for several nutrients.” This is especially true for those who are aging, pregnant, or eating a vegetarian diet.
In 2002, a study by the Harvard School of Medicine, which reviewed 35 years of research, concluded that every adult should be taking a multivitamin daily to optimize their health in a safe, yet inexpensive way.
Benefits of taking a multivitamin can include:
- stronger immune system
- boost in energy
- healthy nerves
- better eye health
- youthful skin
- less hunger and more weight loss
- slower aging
- better memory
- improved circulation
Multivitamins may also help prevent serious health conditions. Many studies point to multivitamins reducing the risk of colon cancer and many chronic conditions including osteoporosis and heart disease.
What kind of multivitamin should I take?
Web MD.com suggests selecting a multivitamin that includes:
- Vitamin A
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
Zinc is another great addition to a quality multivitamin. An article on Healthline.com consulted 4 experts on multivitamins and suggested zinc as an important ingredient in a multivitamin for anyone aging or under a lot of stress – basically everyone! Zinc is known for supporting the immune system, helping the body process foods, and providing healing properties to the body.
One common concern about multivitamin pills and capsules is the amount of time it takes for them to dissolve in the body, preventing quick and easy absorption. This prevents the body from receiving the promised health benefits.
The solution? Taking a liquid multivitamin!
Liquid multivitamins are easy to swallow and do not require digestion. They can be quickly absorbed into the body, providing health benefits immediately. Pills and capsules often have added unnatural ingredients to keep their shape and extend their shelf life. Liquid vitamins avoid that process.
