One way to make sure that you get at least the minimum amount of all your vitamins and┬áminerals is to take a multivitamin every day. There is quite a bit of evidence that┬ámultivitamins are important for general health, immunity, and well-being. Most people donÔÇÖt get adequate amounts of vitamins in their diet.┬á Processed foods, which make up a lot of the American diet, lose vitamins with processing.┬á But, multivitamins set you up for a healthy┬ábaseline without toxic levels of these vitamins.
In the past:
Vitamins were traditionally useful in preventing de´Čüciency diseases which luckily, we donÔÇÖt really see in this country anymore.┬á Still,┬ávitamins are currently an important way to supplement your health.
Today vitamins are used to:
- Support normal organ and body functions
- Enhance immunity
- Improve cardiovascular function
- May even prevent cancer
