MULTIVITAMINS IN-DEPTH

Vitamins are organic chemical compound that are essential for the normal growth and development of an organism but cannot be synthesized in sufficient quantities by the human body, and must be obtained from the diet. The term vitamin is derived from the words vital and amine, because vitamins are required for life and were originally thought to be amines. Although not all vitamins are amines, they are organic compounds required by humans in small amounts from the diet. An organic compound is considered a vitamin if a lack of that compound in the diet results in overt symptoms of deficiency. Due to our modern lifestyle, the large consumption of highly processed foods, and high level of physical and emotional stress many people today do not get sufficient vitamins in their diet. Taking multivitamin supplements can be a valuable tool for those with dietary imbalances or different nutritional needs and a solution to counter the widely pervasive vitamin deficiencies today.

 

American Medical Association today is advising all adults to take at least one multivitamin pill each day in order to ensure that people get a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals in their diet. According to researcerhs of Harvard University, who wrote the new guidelines of the American Medical Association, people who get enough vitamins may be able to prevent such common chronic illnesses as cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis. Studeis found that almost 80 percent of people do not eat at least five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, the recommended minimum amount believed to provide sufficient essential nutrients. And ont he top of that, even people who eat four to five servings of vegetables and fruits per day may not get enough of certain vitamins for optimum health. Researcerhs conclude that most people, for instance, cannot get the healthiest levels of folate and vitamins D and E from recommended diets. All of us grew up believing that if we ate a healthy, balanced diet, that would take care of our vitamin needs. But the new evidence, much of it in the last couple of years, is that vitamins also prevent the usual diseases we deal with every day, including heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and birth defects.

 

BASIC NUTRITIONAL FOUNDATION

A multivitamin is a preparation intended to supplement a human diet with vitamins, dietary minerals and other nutritional elements. Such preparations are available in the form of tablets, capsules, pastilles, powders or liquids formulations. In the early 1940s, the first multivitamin-multi-mineral tablet was introduced since than thousand product were launched. Many multivitamins are formulated and/or labeled to differentiate consumer sectors e.g. prenatal, children, mature or 50+, men\'s , women\'s, diabetic, stress or athletes. Compositional variation amongst brands and lines allows substantial consumer choices. Modern multivitamin products roughly classify into RDA (recommended daily allowance) centric multivitamins, the components of the higher potency formulas are mostly above the RDA. Basic commercial multivitamin supplement products often contain the following ingredients: vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B6, folic acid, B12, B5 (pantothenate), H (biton), A, D3, E, K1, beta-carotine, and minerals such as potassium, selen, borate, zinc, calcium, magnesium, chroimium, mangenase, molybdenum, iodide, iron etc. Some high potency and more complex formulas may include additional ingredients such as other carotenes (e.g. lutein, lycopene), "near" B vitamins (inositol, choline, PABA), trimethylglycine (anhydrous betaine), vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7, lecithin, bioflavonoids etc. While multivitamins can be a valuable tool to correct dietary imbalances, it is worth exercising basic caution before taking them, especially if any medical conditions exist. In particular, pregnant women should generally consult their doctors before taking any multivitamins. Severe vitamin and mineral deficiencies require medical treatment and can be very difficult to treat with common over-the-counter multivitamins.
