Multivitamins – A Ticket to Daily Health
By: Sonny DS
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.
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 Bcomplex 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
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
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.
