Multivitamin and mineral complex

The foundation of good health depends on vitamins and minerals, which we can get from a balanced diet or from dietary supplements. However, the standard American diet is devoid of many vital nutrients. Fried foods, processed junk food and diet soda dominate the menu. Plus, processed food is cheaper and far easier to come by than organic whole foods, which makes it even harder to eat right.

Food in general is different today than it was 100 or even 50 years ago. The soil in which much of our food is grown is depleted of minerals, and the feed given to livestock raised on factory farms is a far cry from the nutrient-rich grass and grains they consumed in the open prairies of past generations. Even fruits, vegetables and legumes are assaulted with chemical pesticides and herbicides, and this raw food is further stripped of its nutrient content by high heat and other production methods used during the manufacturing process. But these challenges are not excuses. We need to make sure we're providing our bodies with the essential vitamins and minerals they need to stay healthy.

Conclusion: Unless you're the minority—someone who actually maintains a healthy diet rich in natural foods, fruits and vegetables—your body is likely craving the essential nutrients you'll get with a high quality multivitamin. The question is which of the hundreds of multivitamins to pick. Check out this guide to help you choose the right multivitamin and mineral complex for your body.
