Taking a multivitamin & mineral formula is essential these days, as it is unrealistic to think you can get all the nutrients you need from food alone. Research carried out over the last few decades has shown that most chronic diseases in the world are nutrition related. Many people believe that eating a well balanced diet provides all the necessary vitamins for good health. In ideal circumstances this is the case, but in reality there are many reasons why you may need vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements to help your body cope with today's living environment. Some of the reason for the necessity to take dietary supplements can be attributed to; unhealthy diet, poor lifestyle choices, soil depletion from over-worked lands, pollution, stress. Many of us, even those who feel that they eat well, do not eat a balanced diet. On average almost 40% of the calories we consume come from highly processed convenience or snack foods which are rich in fat and refined sugar. These foods contain few of the vitamins and minerals we need. In fact, as the body processes certain junk foods, important nutrients are lost, and must be replaced from other sources. No supplement can be used as a substitute for a good diet - yet a good diet is not always enough. Environmental and lifestyle stresses can sometimes increase the need for essential nutrients to a higher level than can be obtained from the diet. Some factors that contribute to nutrient depletion are: stress, strenuous exercise, alcohol, tea, coffee and cola drinks, dieting, processed foods, prescription drugs, illness, pregnancy, smoking, antibiotics, oral contraceptives, age, poor digestion and food additives. Nutritional care and health supplements are now an integral part of total health care and preventative medicine. Long term nutrient depletion can adversely affect health and vitality, and also contribute to serious degenerative diseases. Every bodily function depends on energy producing chemical reactions in the cells. Without adequate vitamins and minerals as well as essential proteins, carbohydrates and fatty acids, energy and vitality is reduced, and illness may occur. Adequate nutritional intake has a large effect on your energy, health, vitality, and longevity. In fact without proper nutrients, the body is unable to continue the biochemical and metabolic processes which produce cellular energy. Pollution, dietary habits and lifestyle factors make it difficult to receive all the nutrients you need from food alone. Therefore, a multi vitamin and mineral formula should be included in everyone's diet to ensure valuable nutrients are not missed. Ideally this should contain ample amounts of Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Beta-Carotene, and Minerals in specific ratios.
