Our body needs various minerals and vitamins to function properly. We can get most of the minerals and vitamins by consuming the right foods. However, many people take a multivitamin daily to make sure they get all the minerals and vitamins that are needed by their bodies. Some health experts said that daily multivitamin is a good option for the trace elements, such as folic acid, chromium, iron, potassium, selenium, zinc and manganese.
However, experts also suggested to choose the right multivitamin. We are suggested to shop for vitamins or multivitamins in health food or natural food stores. We must read the label and its expiration date. We have to make sure that the date is a few months away. We also need to read the Recommended Daily Allowance or RDA, which is often written as “%DV”. However, the DVs on the label may not take into consideration the different requirements for gender and age as RDAs do.
Basically, daily multivitamin can be beneficial. However, doctors warn us to not to be suckered by “too much” vitamins. It is because the amount of vitamins in a standard level will give the best benefit. So, do not just see the brand or price because the best way is choosing the right ingredients and levels.
