International Orders Are Resumed But Expect Delays.
To say that our bodies are busy is an understatement.
Each moment that we are alive, billions of processes are happening at once on a microscopic level within us.
Cells are born and die, messages travel between our organ systems to regulate balance, and by-products of our food are turned into fuel that our brains use to function.
In order to keep these processes going, we need to consume at least thirty different vitamins and minerals which the body is unable to make on its own in large enough amounts.
These micronutrients equip us with the ability to perform basic needs like wound healing, water balance, immune function maintenance, and countless other essential activities.
Deficiencies and Thriving
While it is possible to obtain all the vitamins and minerals you need from the diet, to do so would be very rare…
For example, 10% of Britain’s population over 40 is deficient in vitamin D.
Likewise, B12 and Magnesium deficiencies are very common, as are many others.
What’s more even if someone isn’t typically classed as “deficient”, that doesn’t mean that they necessarily are taking on enough of that vitamin / mineral to feel as healthy as possible...
We want to thrive, not just survive.
There’s often a very big difference between the recommended daily amount, and the amount you need to feel great!
This can obviously have negative implications, particularly for those with chronic health problems.
Tackling the Problem
Whilst diet will always be important, a good quality multivitamin can be a good insurance policy against nutrient deficiencies.
Something such as our Advanced Multi contains nearly thirty nutrients in forms that the body can easily absorb to help improve overall health and let the body perform the way it wants to perform.
Taking a daily multivitamin can help to…
Fill Dietary Gaps
We know that it can be a chore for even the healthiest of people to eat well and get all their vitamin needs from food alone.
We also know the unfortunate reality—individuals with chronic health problems may be even less likely to get the necessary daily nutrition from their diet alone…
For example, conditions such as IBS and IBD, where abdominal pain and bloating are commonplace, can make it difficult to find an appetite.
Even conditions that cause energy and pain make sticking to a great varied diet all the more difficult.
Therefore, it is even more important for those struggling with their health to ensure they’re getting adequate levels of nutrients by filling the gaps with a supplement, if necessary.
Inflammation is the leading process behind many chronic conditions including inflammatory bowel disease and arthritis.
More specifically, inflammation is the cause of pain in these conditions, but nutrient deficiencies will almost certainly lead to increased levels of inflammation in the body.
Fatigue can be devastating, particularly for those who live with one or more chronic illnesses.
While there are countless methods you can try to boost your energy levels and push through the day, nutrients such as B Vitamins, Vitamin C and magnesium (found in a good quality multivitamin) can be a safe, non-stimulatory, effective way to start fighting fatigue.
Chronic Illness Risk
Studies show strong links between vitamin and mineral deficiencies and chronic disease risk.
For example, a 150-page report from the World Health Organization highlights the importance of nutrition in the prevention of serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
We certainly don’t pretend a multivitamin is a cure to all health problems.
But there’s no doubt that it is very hard to get optimal amount of nutrients in your diet these days, and avoiding deficiencies is incredibly important if you want to feel as good as you can.
Unfortunately, not all multivitamins are equal…
Far from it.
It’s VERY easy to waste your money in this area.
