Eating a balanced diet and meeting your recommended daily intake is a tricky business. In this world full of misleading advertisements, what you believe is healthy for you can, in fact, do you more harm than good. Ever heard of “not all that glitters is gold”? Well, that’s how grocery shopping nowadays feels like. And there is this hassle of checking all the labels and making sure it has the vitamins you need AND making sure it doesn’t have the excess of those additives you don’t need. Cooking also causes some food to lose its nutrients so we also need to take that into account. It’s just this constant addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of the numerical value of the food we intake just to make sure we are on top of our health goals. Sometimes, you just want to go binge eating. Unfortunately, a lot of the really deliciously made from heaven food are not as healthy as they look like. It can get frustrating right? I get it; we do need to take care of our health as health is wealth. Without health, we wouldn’t be able to earn a living and enjoy what we have earned. But there’s got to be a way for us to stay healthy and still enjoy life.
Although nothing can beat eating nutritious real food to meet you recommended daily allowance, there are certain individuals who can benefit from supplementing their intake with vitamins and minerals.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women: The mother is responsible for giving her child the right nutrients to develop and she may need to double her intake for her and her unborn child. She may need supplements only after careful diagnosis from a qualified doctor.
Elderly people: Vitamin absorption will decrease as we grow older particularly with vitamin B12, calcium and vitamin D. It is best to ensure they still get proper nutrients through vitamin supplements.
Vegans and vegetarians: We can name a lot of good reasons why meat is bad for the health. For instance, it can increase your risk of colon or rectum cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other foodborne illness. You can’t really blame the vegans and vegetarians to skip meat, however; they are also missing the vitamins that are rich in animal sources such as vitamin B12, zinc, iron, vitamin D, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. Vitamin supplementation ensures that they don’t have any deficiencies for these important elements.
Of course, there are also other individuals who do not belong to these categories, yet, may need to take multivitamins. If you are recovering from a surgery or an illness and you feel you need certain vitamins to help you recuperate or if you have a poor appetite and are not getting the nutrients you need, you may need to take some supplements.
