Do I Really Need To Take A Multivitamin?

Yes. Our bodies require an adequate amount of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and amino acids so that we can fight infections, grow, repair tissue, regulate hormone levels and maintain proper organ function.

Today’s diets are depleted of these nutrients due to the decreasing quality of our food supply and busy lifestyles. Little time is devoted to quality food choices and meals, leading to options based on convenience. These options tend to be higher in fat, refined carbohydrates and sodium. These foods lack crucial vitamins. The best diet is a diet that is rich in fruit and vegetables, lean protein and whole grains. We should be eating 5-8 servings of vegetables, 3 fruits and 50-60 grams of lean protein a day along with several servings of whole grain foods. Do you have the ideal diet? Not many people do.

Even if you did eat properly, we would still need to supplement with a multivitamin. Most of our produce is shipped to our local supermarkets from other countries and states. This long transportation delay depletes the produce of its essential vitamins. Also, today, the soil in which our fruit and vegetables are grown is depleted of vitamins and minerals due to water pollution and the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides. We are also eating genetically modified produce (whether we know it or not) and only G-d knows what vitamins or chemicals are in them. Beef and chicken are fed corn grain, instead of grass because of this, meat and dairy products are no longer as nutritious.

Many make the mistake of taking other vitamins and supplements without taking a multivitamin. The extra supplements taken depend on the body having sufficient nutrients to work efficiently. If the body doesn’t have a good foundation the supplements will not be helpful. Taking a supplement without taking a multivitamin would be like building a home without a solid foundation.
