Multivitamins can be a helpful tool in filling any potential nutrient gaps in your diet.
Multivitamins aren't a miracle cure, but they can act as a "dietary insurance plan" to help you fill in the gaps with your eating habits.
Especially if you have food allergies, dietary restrictions, or medical issues that affect your diet. This popular vitamin may do more.
*Multivitamin brands choose the amount and kind of vitamins, minerals, and other substances. However, most multivitamins include all or most vitamins and minerals at recommended levels.
Since whole foods include vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other healthful ingredients, they are not meant to replace them. Even the best diets with plenty of fruits and vegetables may need vitamins and minerals.
Daily multivitamin usage may improve memory, cognition, and nutrition biomarkers. A multi can help address vitamin shortages, but it shouldn't replace a healthy diet.
Since multivitamins and other supplements are not FDA-approved before being sold, choose high-quality ones that have been third-party evaluated for purity, potency, and safety.
