In the busy grind of daily routine that, most of us consume, our life with, fast food, saturated fats, carbs, and sugar tend to be our go-to for convenience and a “quickie”. A high-quality, all-in-one, multivitamin helps fill gaps where diet lacks. It is best to be PROACTIVE, NOT REACTIVE. Keeping our body hydrated and absorbing proper nutrients can help decrease dis-ease and increase healthy lifestyles. Daily nutrients absorbed through proper diet are optimal, however not always as easy as one might hope for in our hectic world, in which we choose to live.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health if you check one of the statements below, you should consider taking a multivitamin:
I am eating a limited diet or my diet is poor, so I eat less than usual.
-I am following a restricted diet for longer than one week. This could be prescribed such as a liquid diet after surgical procedure, or a self-imposed diet such as with the goal of weight loss.
-I have a condition that reduces my body’s ability to absorb nutrients (celiac disease, ulcerative colitis) or have undergone surgery that interferes with normal absorption of nutrients (gastric bypass, Whipple procedure).
-I temporarily have increased nutrient needs, such as being pregnant.
-I am very busy and have trouble eating a balanced diet.
