There’s an easy way to ensure you’re covered on ALL your basic nutrients at once.
And it costs literally pennies a day.
So naturally, the mainstream is downright livid over this – launching attack… after attack… after attack… on simple, humble, everyday multivitamins.
Now, they’re at it again.
They’re out with a new report in the medical journal BMJ that claims multivitamins do pretty much nothing for most healthy people and don’t prevent non-communicable diseases.
They claim there’s NO reason to take vitamins… NO reason to take minerals… and even NO reason to take fish oil.
Yep. Not even a Flintstone for you!
But don’t toss your vitamins yet – because this study only tells PART of the story.
And when you look at the big picture, you can see why these aren’t just good to have around.
They can be downright essential!
What your multivitamin can do for you
Multivitamins aren’t a disease-beating magic pill, and no one in natural medicine would ever claim that.
But they fill in the gaps. And when it comes to gaps…
Nearly EVERYONE is missing out one SOMETHING.
That’s not my opinion. That’s a fact. The Linus Pauling Institute looked at data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2007-2010 and found that based on diet alone:
- 3 percent don’t get enough vitamin D
- 5 percent miss out on vitamin E
- 2 percent fall short in magnesium
- 1 percent fail on calcium
- 43 percent have insufficient vitamin A
- 9 percent are low in vitamin C
And many others fall short in potassium, choline, vitamin K and just about ALL of the B vitamins.
That’s not even the full list!
Without a thorough test, there’s no way of knowing what you might be missing. And even if you take a test, that’s just a snapshot of one moment in time, and won’t capture the full range of nutrient levels over weeks, months and years.
So you can either pay big money for frequent blood tests… and feel like a human pincushion to boot… or just assume that you’re among the vast majority of Americans missing SOMETHING.
The simplest way to correct nearly all of it at once is with a multivitamin.
These vitamins aren’t going to CURE any single disease.
But they WILL cover you on the basics – ensuring at the very least a baseline for nutrition to start from, support against common health concerns and maybe even give you an edge in the fight against conditions such as bone loss, mood disorders and immune system issues, all of which have a strong nutritional component.
Just think of them as smart, broad spectrum nutrient insurance.
Then, beyond that, work with a doctor who practices integrative or functional medicine to go over your specific risks and what you might need in addition to a multivitamin for complete protection.
