Multi-Vitamins, Once A Day, Every Day
by Kat Yares
No one thing a person could do to contribute to staying healthy is more important than taking a multi-vitamin/multi-mineral tablet daily. In this world of fast food, high stress, little sleep, taking a multi-vitamin is almost essential for both adults and children.
Which multi-vitamin to take? If you look on the store shelves the options seem overwhelming, but they aren't. Look for a complete multi-vitamin that matches you and your lifestyle.
Just as prenatal multi-vitamins are recommended for pregnant women, there are vitamins on the shelf for everyone. While a man wouldn't take a prenatal vitamin, a woman wouldn't necessarily want to take one developed for men either.
How do you decide? Look at your age, your lifestyle and any special needs you have. A very active lifestyle will have different nutritional needs than one who's more sedentary. Men and women over fifty have different nutrient requirements than those younger than that. A stressed out executive or an overworked stay at home mother will need more B Complex in their multivitamin than those less affected by stress will. Children will have special needs for promoting healthy growth and development.
In the end, even a generic multivitamin will go far to help correct the imbalance of nutrients the body gets from skipped meals and fast foods
