Do You Need to Take a Multivitamin?

Posted by on Tuesday, April 10, 2018

We should be able to get all of our nutrients from the foods that we eat, and not need to take additional supplementation. 

However, it is unfortunate that most people don’t eat enough of an adequate nutrient dense diet. In addition, the food that we eat is usually farmed in a nutrient depleted soil so we are not getting the highest quality vitamins and minerals we need from just food alone. 

This is why it is important to take additional vitamins and minerals in the form of vitamins and supplements. 

Studies have shown that most Americans do not get enough of a variety of colors of fruits and vegetables and therefore don’t get enough phytonutrients and antioxidants they need to support detoxification and prevent inflammation and disease. 

You’re not getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet

Most of the general population is deficient in at least some if not all vitamins and minerals. Even if we are eating a healthy balanced diet there is usually something missing. Of course, you should always rely on eating healthy whole food as being your first source of getting the proper vitamins and nutrients but taking a multivitamin is like an insurance policy on your health and should be an addition to eating a healthy balanced diet daily.

Protect Against Stress 


Our environment can be filled with toxins that put extra stress on our body. Taking a multivitamin helps to increase antioxidants in the body to combat free radicals and other toxins from our environment in our body. 


Replenishes Nutrients Lost From Activity

If you are active then taking a multivitamin will help to replenish nutrients lost through activity. When you participate in high-intensity activity your body loses nutrients through sweat and taking a multivitamin can help to restore nutrients. 

Disease Prevention 

Studies have shown that taking a daily multivitamin can help to reduce heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Many vitamins found in multivitamins help to target these diseases and increase prevention. 

Boosts Immunity 

Vitamins C, D, and E are all known to help increase immunity so taking a multivitamin daily will help to target immunity. 

Helps Skin, Hair, and Nails 

Many vitamins that are found in a multivitamin like B3, C, A, E all help to increase the health of your hair skin and nails. 

Increase Energy

B vitamins found in multivitamins are known to help to increase energy and mood and help to manage stress and anxiety. 

Replenishes Depleted Nutrients from Medications 

Taking any prescription medications like birth control, anti-anxiety, cholesterol-lowering etc. depletes certain vitamins and minerals so taking a daily multivitamin will help to replenish nutrients lost from medications. 

Support Healthy Aging

Every stage of your life requires different nutrition requirements so find a multi that is designed for your stage in life is important. Find a quality multivitamin that fits the nutrients needed for your stage of life. 

While you can get supplements at any pharmacy, you can often find better quality, food-based supplements at higher end natural foods stores and health food stores. 

An integrative or functional nutritionist can also help you to identify your specific needs before you head to the store for supplements.

Proceed with caution if you are buying your supplements online and not from the actual distributor of the product. There are no quality controls on those types of sites and you can be getting products that are expired or have been tampered with. 

There are so many vitamin brands that standing in the vitamin aisle at any store can be overwhelming and confusing. 

Unfortunately, there are no real regulations and guidelines to say which products are better than another. This is why it is extremely important to buy supplements from a reputable company. The company should have quality controls in place to test effectiveness, base their formulations on scientific research and work with independent labs to make sure their products actually have what the label claims and contain no contaminants.
