Multi choice or just one choice?

Monday, April 25, 2022

Multivitamins and minerals are the most commonly used supplements in the world. While there is not a one-size-fits-all approach, a daily multivitamin and mineral is a one way to ensure there are no nutrient gaps each day. Even with a healthy diet, and no matter which diet you follow, it can be difficult to get all the nutrients from your food all the time. 

Common signs you’re lacking nutrients:

  • Fatigue
  • Common deficiencies such as iron, B vitamins and iodine are vital to energy.
  • Poor night and eye health
  • Vitamin A, carotenoids and other antioxidants are especially important for good night vision. 
  • Dull, lifeless hair and skin, and brittle, peeling nails
  • The appearance of your skin, nails or hair depends on a wide range of nutrients from amino acids, zinc, vitamins B and C and a range of antioxidants.

What are the benefits of taking a multivitamin and mineral? It may support: 

Healthy ageing

Studies have suggested that women who take a multivitamin have healthy telomere length compared to those who don’t. What does this mean? The length of your telomeres is associated with ageing – so the longer the better!   

Brain health

Several studies have found that multivitamins can support mental clarity and focus in older adults. The brain needs a wide range of nutrients to support optimal functioning, including a range of B vitamins and minerals to support neurotransmitter production, DNA synthesis, as well as the antioxidant glutathione.

It is important to get a quality multivitamin supplement from a company that you can trust. Solgar VM-2000 fulfils the needs of many people, as well as being ideal for those who are on a vegan or kosher diet. It covers 32 key vitamins, minerals, while including amino acids, a natural sourced beta carotene and carotenoids, L-glutathione, taurine, betaine HCL, and high levels of B vitamins, all help to supporting everyday vitality and wellbeing. 

Some individuals are more vulnerable to nutrient gaps in their diet: 

  • Vegans and vegetarians: Those on a plant-based diet are at higher risk of vitamin B12 deficiency, but often lack zinc, iron and amino acids
  • Those on a paleo, keto, restricted or weight loss diet: they simply miss out on vital nutrients
  • Older adults who tend to have poorer absorption of nutrients 
  • Stressed or busy people, as they often eat on the run or skip meals
  • Athletes, as they often require more nutrients to help with their stamina and recovery.
