A multivitamin is a little bit of everything-in-one—that means a little bit of support for everything, and a wide-safety net for your diet. While most people have less than ideal eating habits, even those who try to focus on eating a good variety of everything each day might be missing out if their food wasn’t grown in rich soil (and what nutrients you’re getting even varies a bit by region it’s grown in!).
But it’s key to choose a high-quality multivitamin. Studies have shown you get what you pay for—or less, if you’re buying popular brands from the grocery store, which have been caught with missing ingredients by independent researchers. Instead, opt for something like Vita One, which has only high-quality ingredients that are bioavailable (easy for the body to absorb and ready for the body to use) and no fillers, preservatives, or other additives.
What sort of “everything” does Vita One cover? It’s got B complex vitamins including B12, Vitamin D (key as days start getting cloudier and shorter), and Vitamin K, as well as other basics like Vitamins C and A and minerals like zinc, selenium, and potassium. It’s also got a lot of superfoods squeezed in, including spirulina, grape skin and seed extract, CoQ10 (which is great heart support)—and those are just some highlights of the many nutrients woven together to make a strong safety-net.
There’s benefit to having some extra support year round. Although it’s nice that produce is available year-round, that means that food comes from different places, with different soil qualities, and that at times, it has to travel farther to get to you, meaning time for nutrients to degrade. Other sources of nutrients, like the sun, vary too, and not only Vitamin D but calcium seems to wane in the winter too as bone density decreases.
If you aren’t already, it’s time to get started with a daily multivitamin like high-quality Vita One.
