There’s no such thing as a perfect diet. While there are lots of regional meal plans and ones from different times in history that are pretty good, the best diet pulls together all the best parts (a nice benefit of modern living). Taking a daily multivitamin is one way to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need, as well as all the nutrients we know to be the best.
Unfortunately, it’s not reality for most people to cram a bunch of superfoods into their diet everyday alongside all the other food groups! And while there’s a lot more variety available regardless of season or region, there’s also a downside to modernity: we’ve overfarmed so the food we eat isn’t as nutrient rich as it once was (and even in rich soils, it varies significantly by region so at different times of the year the nutrient profile of what’s available skews one way or another. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg on nutritional problems: there’s organic vs. regular, the fact that apples typically get stored a year before hitting shelves, and more.
In addition to that, we all have off days. We get busy and miss a meal, cheat with treats, or get out of balance from regular life events.
A daily multivitamin fills the gaps, providing a safety net so that each and every day you get all the basics plus additional support. It shouldn’t replace a healthy diet, but it’s a great way to take the pressure out of eating healthy. When you get all the nutrients you need, you feel better. It’s indirect mood support, health support, sleep support and more.
Just be sure to choose a high-quality multivitamin. Independent research routinely finds that big brands and stuff sold in grocery stores are full of low-quality ingredients (when they aren’t just filler). High-quality daily multivitamins like Vita One have no filler, a variety of fresh nutrients, and are bioavailable (which translates to easy to digest, absorb, and use).
