Have you ever wondered why you should take multivitamins? It’s an interesting fact that not everyone is aware of, but—our bodies actually can’t produce all of the nutrients that keep us healthy and that regulate normal growth and bodily functions. You have to obtain those important nutrients from the foods you eat.
According to The Harvard Medical School, there are thirty vitamins that serve a variety of functions. Many of these vitamins are found in foods such as milk, beef, cheese, fruits, vegetables, and other proteins and food types.
The problem is you’re not always in a position either to eat those foods or to consume the amount your body needs. Maybe you’re on the go, busy with work or kids or other obligations, and don’t have time to prepare a good meal. Maybe you’re traveling and a fully nutritious meal isn’t readily available. Maybe you just don’t like the foods that provide the nutrients you need!
Here’s where vitamins come in. They bridge the gap by directly providing those essential nutrients in an easy, quick, and relatively inexpensive manner. They prevent deficiencies that could adversely affect your health.
Vitamin deficiencies can be serious
One example of a vitamin deficiency is an iron deficiency, also known as anemia. According to Health Line, anemia is common. Of course, there are other causes for anemia, such as bleeding during pregnancy or the body being unable to absorb iron. Anyone of any age can experience this type of vitamin deficiency. If untreated, iron deficiency can lead to rapid or irregular heartbeats, pregnancy complications, or delayed growth in infants and children. As you can see, it’s not just important to be aware of the deficiency, but to treat it by using vitamins.
Iron isn’t the only vitamin deficiency that leads to poor health. According to The World Health Organization, “Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is the leading cause of preventable blindness in children and increases the risk of disease and death from severe infections. In pregnant women VAD causes night blindness and may increase the risk of maternal mortality.” There can be devastating effects if this single vitamin is missing from your diet! Other statistics from the World Health Organization support this fact:
- An estimated 250 million preschool children are vitamin A deficient, and it’s likely that in the parts of the world where vitamin A deficiencies are prevalent, a substantial proportion of pregnant women are also suffering from this deficiency.
- An estimated 250,000 to 500,000 of vitamin A-deficient children become blind every year, half of them dying within 12 months of losing their sight.
The positive side revealed by this study is that swift intervention helps. A UNICEFF program, for example, provided vitamin A supplements to 40 developing countries in 1998, and since that time, an estimated 1.25 million deaths have been averted. Vitamin supplements do save lives.
With these two examples in mind, it’s important to recognize how easy it is for the average person to under-consume the proper amount of each vitamin due to the amount of processed and fast foods prevalent in American diets. As we noted at the beginning of the article, our fast paced lifestyles are a recipe for vitamin deficiencies. And, as we’ve seen, this can lead to short and long term health problems. Taking the proper amount of vitamins is important. But how do you it?
