Why Taking a Multivitamin Is a Good Idea

If you eat a healthy diet, you may think you don’t need a natural multivitamin. Not so fast. Here is some pure food for thought on why you might not be getting all the nutrients you need from the food you eat. Young women, prenatal women, women 50+, and men — we’re looking at you!

Your Food Isn’t as Nutritious as Your Grandmother’s Was

Surprise! If you ate a meal identical to one eaten fifty years ago — with the same serving sizes of the same fruits and vegetables — it probably wouldn’t contain the same levels of nutrients.

Scientists have been noting the nutritional decline of produce for decades now. There are various theories, from soil depletion due to modern farming practices to excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. All these factors can cause plant to grow more quickly. While that may sound good, acceleration can spread plants’ nutrients thinner. A review of 57 articles measuring nutrients in food over the past few decades found decreases of 9% for magnesium, up to 18% for zinc, and up to 31% for iron. That can really add up!


You Have a Food Sensitivity

More and more people have food sensitivities these days. If you can’t eat gluten or lactose doesn’t agree with you, you may have to cut certain foods from your diet, even if they’re good sources of nutrients, like B vitamins in whole-grain bread or calcium in milk. Food intolerances can keep us from getting all the nutrition we need as we bob around avoiding common allergens such as soy, eggs, fish, shellfish, dairy, wheat, peanuts, or nuts in general. You substitute as you can but it boils down to the question, “are you getting enough vitamins?”


You Follow a Restricted Diet

Similarly, if you’re following a restricted diet by choice, like keto or vegan, there will be foods that are off-limits for you. This can make it hard to cover all your bases, nutritionally speaking. Even if your new special diet really clicks with your body type and you’re starting to feel good, some nutrition may be getting missed. All men and women, regardless of dietary intake, need basic nutrition.


You Have Digestive Issues

Gut health is a touchy issue for a lot of people. If you experience digestive discomfort, loose stool, or occasional constipation, you may not be digesting your food and absorbing its nutrients as well as you could. And that means you may be missing out on some vitamins and minerals, even if you’re doing your best to eat healthy foods and limit the junk.

Certainly food absorption becomes more and more of an issue as we age. Senior citizens age 50, 60, or more need a quality multivitamin.
