Without vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients, the human body would be rendered useless. Every organ is made up of cells and every cell must be fueled with oxygen and specific nutrients in order to function at its full capacity. We get vitamins from whole foods, including fortified beverages and animal protein, but our diets are not always up to par. This is where multivitamins come in. Multivitamins cover an array of nutrients and can come in liquid, tablet, capsule or powder form. In this article, we will be talking about the health benefits of multivitamins and how they can help you reach and maintain optimal health.
What does a multivitamin do?
Multivitamins are a great and convenient way to fill nutritional gaps throughout the day. Whether your diet is poor or great, multivitamins still have their place. They are carefully formulated to provide the RDA (recommended daily intake) of its listed nutrients. This in itself brings a sense of certainty knowing that your body systems have received what it needs for the day. Multivitamins also come in gender specific formulas for kids, men and women; which further allows for targeted makeup based on gender and developmental stages and needs.
What do multivitamins contain?
Multivitamins contain a combination of vitamins and minerals and some essential nutrients like fatty acids, which is present in Noor’s Prenatal DHA for women. There are a few on the market that only have vitamins or minerals, but in general, similar nutrients are always present. They are a combination of B vitamins, along with vitamin A, C and D. Staple minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc along with trace minerals like phosphorous, selenium and copper and many others. Nutrients are sometimes synthetic or extracted from fruit and vegetable sources, to allow for better absorption while other nutrients like Vitamin D, are commonly animal sourced. There is no multivitamin that will contain the long list of every nutrient our body needs (it’s just too much for any dosage form) however, it will always contain the essential vitamins and minerals that support our body systems, energy levels and major functions.
