Multivitamin

Our bodies rely on approximately 13 essential vitamins and minerals, all of which can be consumed through the foods that we eat. Sometimes getting the recommended values of these vitamins and minerals through diet alone can be challenging, especially for those with dietary restrictions. A great way to supplement your diet is by taking a multivitamin, but how do we choose one that would be best for us. There are hundreds of multivitamins that claim to be geared towards different groups of people, whether it be children, men, women, or seniors. Doing a little research will allow you to pick the best multivitamin for your health needs. When looking at the nutrition label on the back, steer clear of vitamins that possess mega doses, because in most cases, 100% of daily value is all that you need. Some particular minerals to watch for, especially in women, is calcium. Women should consider a separate calcium pill because most multivitamins do not possess enough calcium. Another tip to consider is to ignore claims for benefits such as weight control or increased energy as they are generally unsubstantiated. Even if botanical ingredients, food extracts, and other substances like lutein and lycopene did have a benefit, the amounts in a multivitamin are probably too small to have any effect. Do not fall for the gimmicks of the most expensive multivitamins and be sure to do your research before buying. Some of the best multivitamins are very inexpensive. Also, you should not look to take a multivitamin to replace certain the nutrients that you would get from foods that you do not like to eat.
