First of all, taking daily multivitamins and minerals supplement is a great way of getting a variety of nutrition from one single tablet. Most multivitamins and minerals contain a range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which work to support normal health and protect the body from environmental toxins.
Why should I take multivitamins and minerals supplement?
As we get older our bodies work harder to absorb the nutrients we need from food, therefore it can be easy to become deficient in some essential vitamins and minerals. The antioxidants in a multivitamin can protect the bodies cells from free radical damage. We produce free radicals naturally in the body. However, they also occur when we are exposing ourselves to stress, pollution and toxins (alcohol and cigarette smoke).
What should I look for in a MultiVitamin?
Your multivitamins and minerals should be easy for the body to absorb. This is referring to the bioavailability of the tablet. If the body cannot absorb the nutrients the multivitamin is worthless. Most of all, look for a multivitamin which is iron free (additional iron should only if your GP is recommending). Producing tablets under pharmaceutical control means that they're undergoing more stringent testing and quality control procedures. Therefore this ensures the product is safe and contains exactly the amount of ingredients the label states.
