One way to make sure that you get at least the minimum amount of all your vitamins and minerals is to take a multivitamin every day. There is quite a bit of evidence that multivitamins are important for general health, immunity, and well-being. Most people don’t get adequate amounts of vitamins in their diet. Processed foods, which make up a lot of the American diet, lose vitamins with processing. But, multivitamins set you up for a healthy baseline without toxic levels of these vitamins.
In the past:
Vitamins were traditionally useful in preventing deﬁciency diseases which luckily, we don’t really see in this country anymore. Still, vitamins are currently an important way to supplement your health.
