Like myself, you have probably wandered down the grocery store and drug store aisles, trying to read the fine print on the multi-vitamin bottles in order to discern which one to purchase. Should you get one specifically formulated to whether you are male or female? Liquid, gummy, or pill form? Beneficial or not? These are all good questions and concerns, especially when you may not be getting the nutrients you need from diet alone.
As Chris Powell explains about protein powder, the type or exact brand isn’t as necessary as the fact that you should be including it in your daily routine. The truth of the matter is; most people don’t get all the vitamins and minerals they need from their respective diets alone. The vehicle or way in which you get those vitamins delivered to the system they help is less important than needing to take them on a daily basis. Even on a really clean diet, like in Reshape the Nation, it’s important to supplement for things that you may not be getting regularly; vitamin B12 if you’re vegetarian like myself, vitamin D, A, C, and folic acid are all nutrients that get overlooked easily.
I’ve also found that when I forget to take my liquid multivitamin, I crave junk food. It could be psychosomatic, but, it can kind of make sense. If you are lacking a nutrient in your diet, you are sure to crave something containing that nutrient, or one like it, at some point. Taking care of this issue before it becomes a real “issue”, can be beneficial for the long-term success of your health.
