Do I Need to Take Vitamins?

Do I Need to Take Vitamins?

One trip down the central streets of many major American cities will show that consumer demand for unhealthy foods is at its zenith. Unfortunately, our food choices have resulted not only in the advancement of obesity (as a severe public health problem,) but also in a serious lack of nutrition-based dietary decisions that can result in the development of many serious conditions. In other words, it’s not only what we eat that can harm us; it’s also what we don’t eat.

To make matters worse, even “so-called” healthy foods aren’t as healthy as they once were due to nutrient depletion in our soil, and pollutants in the air we breathe and the water we drink.

In a perfect world, we are all eating a properly balanced diet with the right amount of fruits and vegetables and getting the right amount of exercise each day. Unfortunately for many of us, our lives are characterized by the need for speed. Too often, we load up our lives with impossible to-do lists and schedules that have us racing from one place to another without designating sufficient time during the day to take proper care of ourselves. There is much contradiction in the fact that we depend so much on our bodies and minds to help us conquer these Herculean tasks, but we do not devote the requisite time to care for them.

Instead of thoughtful care of our personal dietary health and the health of our loved ones, most diets are focused on convenience and satisfying hunger, not nutritional value.

To offset this deficiency in our diets, there are nutritional supplements available when diet alone is not enough. These nutritional supplements are usually focused on providing missing key vitamins and minerals that are lacking from our diets and can help support the body maintain its systems at peak performance levels.

The best nutrition supplements are the ones that provide you with the specific vitamins and minerals you need to fill the gaps in your personal diets, but also provide you with the support you need for long-term overall health.

Dietary Supplements needed with Age

As we age, nutritional supplements become even more important. For example, adults age 50 or older who are not getting enough vitamin B12 through their everyday diet should consider a nutritional supplement that contains B12. And adults age 65 and older are encouraged to boost their intake of vitamin D to reduce the risk of injury due to falls.

Choosing a nutrition supplement is a wise choice for people who want the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we are supplying ourselves with the most important nutritional components. That is the mindset of two-thirds of all adult Americans in the U.S. who take nutritional supplements.

And according to the National Institute of Health, “Evidence does suggest that some supplements can enhance health in different ways. The most popular nutrient supplements are daily multivitamins, calcium, and vitamins B, C and D. Calcium supports bone health, and vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants—molecules that prevent cell damage and help to maintain health.”

All of these vitamins (B6, B12, C, D, and E) are found in Healthycell Pro, along with calcium and many other nutrients that help supply what the diet does not. The best nutritional supplements contain these ingredients, but also phytonutrients (plant-based compounds) for different aspects of cell health, and probiotics and enzymes that work synergistically to boost absorption of those nutrients and optimize health. Healthycell has designed its Healthycell Pro formula with these considerations in mind.
