Vitamin Supplements, Do We Need Them?


We live in a health conscious generation where vitamins and nutrition have become important topics. Through news, books, advertisements we are being educated as to why need to use vitamins. It's great to see our generation become more aware of our health, but: Do We need take vitamins?

Much research has been done on the actual benefit of vitamin supplements. A recent study has found further evidence that through the intake of multivitamins men and women are able to lower their chance for heart attack. Our every day diets have proven to not provide the right amount of all the needed nutrients for our bodies.

Vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition can lead to all types of different diseases. A lack of Vitamin C can lead to scurvy. You will notice many different symptoms if you have a vitamin deficiencies. Symptoms can include: tiredness, irritability, and muscle cramps. I would recommend visiting a doctor if you notice any of these symptoms on an ongoing basis.

You can see how important Vitamins are in our every day lives. With this being said I would recommend eating healthy, and taking a multivitamin every day to help compliment your diet.
