Think back to the days of your childhood when you’d sit down to a home cooked breakfast from mom or dad. The silverware was laid out neatly on a napkin by the plate in front of your special chair. Next to your favorite cup full of orange juice was the little dinosaur or Flintstone shaped multivitamin you had no reason to complain about taking (but still did).
As you got older, the tasty, flavorful vitamin disappeared and by high school, so did the breakfasts. Fast forward a few years, now as someone who is taking their health and training serious, we’re sure you’ve heard the popular Instagrammers and YouTubers talk about the multivitamin they take. Maybe your parents did actually have your best interest in mind by having you chew the grape flavored Fred Flintstone. “But what’s so great about multivitamins,” you ask yourself?
The real question should be: Why am I NOT taking a multivitamin? These once a day capsules are packed with the dietary essentials necessary for your body to operate at an optimal level. Let’s take a look at a few of the ingredients in True Nutrition’s Whole Food Multivitamin and their potential benefits to you!
Vitamin A is compound that plays a major role in eye health and maintaining sharp vision. Additionally, it supports the immune system and helps to promote bone growth.
Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is necessary for repairing, developing and most importantly growing body tissue. Yes, this includes muscle tissue! Also, Vitamin C helps to maintain cartilage and teeth, and is most widely known for supporting a healthy immune system.
Although it is produced in your skin as a response to sunlight, nearly 10% of adults in the US are deficient in Vitamin D. Although the direct symptoms of a deficiency may be subtle, Vitamin D plays a critical role in the absorption of Calcium. The snowball effect of poor calcium absorption can lead to health issues such as osteoporosis. Long story short, if you don’t always make it outside to get some sun on your skin, supplementing may be in your best interest.
As you have probably heard or read recently, supplementing with Biotin is a great way to help improve nail and hair health. If you suffer from nails that crack or break easily, Biotin could be a saving grace! What you might not know, however, is that Biotin is used in the production of energy, as it is involved in metabolizing carbs, fats and proteins. The ability for our body to break down macronutrients is imperative for not only strength gains, but also health in general.
Without question, Calcium is a key supporting nutrient for bone strength and maintenance. As previously mentioned, calcium has a close relationship with Vitamin D. Without the proper amount of Vitamin D, Calcium can not be absorbed into the body which can ultimately lead to skeletal issues. Additionally, research has shown that calcium can aid in weight loss by promoting the burning of fat and also decreasing the rate at which fat is stored.
Magnesium is a player in over 300 chemical reactions that take place in the body, including muscle protein synthesis. Furthermore, it helps our bodies regulate temperature, control glucose, and dispose of lactic acid that can build up during exercise.
Although it is most commonly known for being found in bananas and preventing cramps, Potassium also helps to regulate kidney function and waste removal. If bananas just don’t do it for you, a multivitamin is your answer!
