If you exercise and eat healthy foods your body is still lacking the nutrients it needs for optimum health. Even if you eat your recommended allowance of nutrient rich fruits and vegetables, most likely you’re not getting enough. Current mass production of food and farming practices have left us with less nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it takes seven cups of today’s spinach to equal the nutrient value one cup provided in 1960. Weather you believe this or not, taking a simple and inexpensive multivitamin in the morning with your breakfast will ensure your body is not lacking any of the nutrients that it needs.
You probably already know the importance of a multivitamin for general health, but if you workout, you need a multivitamin that will help with recovery time in addition to fueling your muscles with the nutrients it needs. Without proper vitamins and minerals in your system, you may be doing your body more harm than good with each workout because each workout results in vitamin and nutrient loss.
For this reason, it is imperative you refuel your body to ensure it is functioning correctly and it’s at optimum health. By having all the vitamins and minerals your body needs will give you more energy for the day and will also help you get through your workouts.
Taking a multivitamin everyday is like an insurance policy for your body, just in case you haven’t gotten all the vitamins through food the multivitamin will make up for anything lacking.
One other thing, you need not spend a lot of money on a good multivitamin either. Some sales people claim theirs to be “the one and only” to take and then selling it for $50 to over a $100 per month. I’m sure it’s a great product and it better be for the crazy price but you can find a low-cost and effective multivitamin at your local food store. Hope this helps you on your journey to the body of your dreams.
