					Multivitamins – A Ticket to Daily Health



An increasingly number of the world’s population is now eager and interested in looking after their health
and in keeping tune with their well-being. It is important to note that this awareness is progressively
contributing to the creation of several health supplements to benefit both the adults and the young ones.
Dietary and vitamin supplements have constantly proven their worth to health conscious individuals.


An excellent daily multivitamin supplement does not only develop your general bodily functions but also
improves your mental and physical condition and well being. Occasionally specification is needed in
appropriately supplementing nutrients to deal with any individual needs. An example would be in heart
disease patients, they would have to take in CoQ10 in preventing the said condition. Alzheimer’s disease
can be effectively prevented by a regular combination of Vitamin C and E intake.


Multivitamin supplements necessarily include all the vitamins and nutrients essential for recommended daily
dosage. Multivitamin supplements may also be formulated to meet the needs of individual conditions like
pregnancy and specific age brackets. It is a well settled fact that multivitamins in liquid form are more
efficient than the ordinary pill forms. This is due to the fact that the body can easily absorb liquid nutrients
five times more than ordinary multivitamins in tablet or capsule form.


Basically, the body needs 13 essential vitamins to function properly. In regulating the crucial performance of
the body, it has to have vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, B12, and the 7 B-complex vitamins. Majority of these
vitamins are obtained by our body through the food that we eat. The danger of illness or even mortality is in
the deficiency of some of the essential vitamins. This is where vitamin supplementation comes in. It
counteracts the illness caused by such deficiency. With this fact, it is very unlikely for someone to refuse
vitamin supplementation on a daily basis. So the question now is, why is it necessary for individuals to take
multivitamins when majority of our daily diet can provide us with the basic nutrients we need? It may not be
compulsory, but everyone can profit from daily multivitamins.


As previously mentioned, the clear benefit of daily intake of multivitamins it to prevent vitamin/nutrient
deficiency. Some personal circumstances may increase dietary needs. Pregnant women, during their first
trimester, are recommended by their doctors to take multivitamins. This does not only provide the mothers
with sufficient nutrition but also proper vitamins to benefit the unborn child inside their womb. Taking
multivitamins everyday reduces the risk of transmitting malnutrition from a pregnant woman to her unborn
baby. Other conditions such as old age, alcoholism, smoking, and exposure to excessive pollution have long-
term detrimental effects to the body system which can be successfully counteracted by multivitamins.


Stress is also one risk factor which needs serious supplementation that multivitamins can provide. Especially
with people who have so much to do and have a hard time in keeping up with their health needs,
multivitamins are a must to keep them always on the go without any health complications in the long run.
Stress formulations benefit both your mental ability and daily endurance. Aside from the mentioned
benefits, daily multivitamins also minimize the risk of cancer or any cardiovascular disease.


Several people, if not all, testify to have a feeling of comfortable health in regularly taking in multivitamins.
This is due to the synergistic or combined effects of the supplemental ingredients found in multivitamins. A
fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin, like the Vitamin E, works to neutralize probable harmful free agents in the
body. This vitamin also maintains healthy skin through protection of cell membranes, blood circulation,
heart, nerves, red blood cells, and muscles. Another antioxidant is the Vitamin C which effectively fights
blood cell infection and is vital in collagen formation, wound healing, and formation of bone structures,
capillaries, and teeth. Vitamin is also helpful in the iron absorption from plant sources. Vitamins A, D, K
and other supplemental nutrients found in multivitamins have specific functions that benefit the bodily
functions.


While daily intake of multivitamins may have proven beneficial, it is not a 100% guarantee to be free of
serious illness attributed to other factors. It is often a misconception that symptoms of disease may always
be cured by taking multivitamins. Health experts have the better opinion of immediate medical assistance
rather than resorting to multivitamins alone.
