Are Multivitamins Really Beneficial To Your Health?

I would love to know what some of our readers think about multivitamins and whether or not they are beneficial to your health. I myself have been taking a multivitamin for years and do feel better when I take it regularly. It’s hard to explain really, as a mom on the go all the time and taking care of everyone else in the household first, I don’t always eat the way I should or get the nutrients I should be getting. When I regularly take a multivitamin, it feels like they boost both my physical and mental health and my well-being.

I know recently there were a few studies done to see if multivitamins and minerals really did the job and the results were inconclusive, as in they couldn’t tell whether they were beneficial or not (this was the last I heard, I haven’t been able to do much more research about it so there is probably updated studies and results out there).

I think one of the most obvious benefits to taking a multivitamin is probably the convenience of it. When you’re on the go all the time, don’t always eat the way you’re supposed to or don’t want to take individual vitamins, multivatimins are probably the best way to go.

Benefits of Multivitamins:

  • Vitamin B12 is very important because a deficiency can lead to serious health complications. (Nerve damage, weak muscles, depression, memory problems, fatigue, anemia, and stunted growth in children.)
  • Vitamin C has helps produce collagen, help wounds to heal and boost the immune system.
  • Vitamin K can help with blood clotting, helping to strengthen bones and counter osteoporosis.
  • Folic acid is a crucial vitamin for women who are trying to conceive and those who are already pregnant.
  • Vitamin A is an antioxidant and is essential in maintaining healthy vision, healthy skin, boost the immune system and can often treat acne and wrinkles.

Centrum multivitamins are probably one of the most popular womens vitamins on the market today. Centrum Ultra Women’s Multivitamin/Multimineral are specially formulated to support breast and bone health, contains B-vitamins to help support your body’s energy, contains antioxidants that help support your immune function, helps maintain healthy skin, hair and nails with biotin, beta-carotene, vitamins A, C and E and more.

What do you think? Do you take multivitamins? Do you find them to be beneficial?
