3 Reasons For Taking Multivitamins

By Antonio Dannes

Should you take a multivitamin? Is it really crucial? Recent studies are showing they are necessary and central for optimal health. There are three key reasons why they have become a requisite in today's reorganized world. Also there are thousands of dissimilar multivitamins you can take but we want to draw round a few that merits your hard earned dollars.

There are many scammers who have learned that the baby boomers have a sturdy desire to one stay alive, stay healthy, stay young, and stay active. So all you have to do is throw around some 'slick' words and put in concert a product that talks the talk, but does not walk the walk and they can make a buck or two.

Let's talk about the three reasons taking a multivitamin for men over 30 especially, is fundamental to health today. One reason is they way we cook our food today. Years ago we use to raise our own livestock, plant & grow our own foods, and when we did we cooked on wood burning stove.

After the food was cooked, we'd take the ashes left over from the wood, and the ladies may remember this more, but we would sprinkle that over the garden. What this acted like was a fertilizer that was rich in minerals that was in the wood that the tree pulled from the ground. This is how we got our mineral intake naturally.

Today we have electric stoves, gas stoves and the question is where and how do we get these vital minerals? You may suggest our farmers are doing this for us. News flash; you're wrong. Farmers (the majority of them anyway) have also bought into the new industrial age. Our farmers are using three main ingredients to fertilize the ground for growing food. Those are potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. These are the only three required for a plant to thrive, humans' needs over sixty.

This will hit home a bit clearer if you look up the United States Senate Document 36 under the USDA (Department of Agriculture). The document will detail the nutrients in our soil are not as nutritious as they were a couple hundred years ago. There are reasons for this, but primarily in the way we are planting. Our foods are not in their full strength any longer. We are losing nutrients and so are our livestock.

The last reason men over 30 (and all humans) need to take a supplement multivitamin is for optimal health. It has been detailed that the human body requires over 90 nutrients. Roughly 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, 60 minerals, and 2 to 3 essential fatty acids are needed in your body on a constant basis. Can you be sure, even with the healthiest American diet that you are receiving all of these when you eat? No, so to be sure, it is wisdom to take on a supplement.

There are thousands of multivitamins you can decide on. Men's one a day, puritan vitamins, Youngevity products, and the list goes on. The key thing to keep in mind or look out for is to make sure they have all 90 or at least 87 of the nutrients you need. Essential fatty acids usually are not mixed into the rest because of the way the dissolve. Also be cautious not to fall for the artificial brands, but get the natural even organic multivitamin. Fake brands pass through the body scarcely being used, if at all. These are usually very cheap and have marketing lingo all over them. Liquid is best because it will be absorbed in the body at 96 to 98 percent as opposed to pills.

Every one, especially men over 30 need to start or continue supplementing with vitamins and minerals. It takes the body longer to recover as it gets older. It becomes harder to fight off diseases all because they body is not fed the accurate amounts of nutrients it needs daily. Many ailments can be reversed if proper nutrition was administered to the body. Weight loss, weight management would be addressed very well by simply supplementing well. Research this further, but make it a routine in your life as soon as you can.
