Our vitality and health depend on a careful balance of at least 50 nutrients. They include:
- Macronutrients like carbs, proteins and fats
- Amino acids
- Essential fatty acids
What is surprising is that Indians and people all over the world are deficient in micronutrients compared to macro. Among them, deficiency of vitamins and minerals is quite common.
It is estimated that 9 out of 10 people are deficient in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
Why it is essential to take enough vitamins and minerals?
The food we eat gives us energy by being broken down into vital nutrients that our body can use. For that to happen, hundreds of chemical reactions happen in the body which can only happen in the presence of at least 28 vitamins and minerals. Without them, the body won’t be able to utilize the potential energy that’s there in food. One-third of all chemical reactions are dependent on tiny vitamins and minerals that most people are deficient in. Even if one vitamin or mineral is missing in the body, it will affect other processes and delay the healing or repairing of the body.
Especially, if you are someone experiencing less energy, mood swings, hormonal imbalance, poor sleep, skin and hair issues or are having lifestyle conditions like diabetes, hypertension, PCOD, thyroid, arthritis or acidity; you need to be extra careful to fulfill micronutrients requirement daily to accelerate healing.
Today, we see that most people’s diets consists of refined foods, sugar and unhealthy fat. They leach out essential vitamins and minerals from the body and your body is deprived of what it really needs. I always say that humans are overfed but undernourished. This is where we need to take multivitamins every single day.
Why only food isn’t enough to get all essential nutrients?
Even if you start eating fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables and have a balanced meal and follow a healthy routine, our body doesn’t get all essential nutrients just from the food. The reasons include overuse of pesticides and chemicals in our food, sitting and sedentary lifestyle, too much stress, pollution, medication and environmental toxins around us.
There are over 3500 man-made chemicals that have found their way into our food, including pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, etc. There are numerous anti-nutrients that our body is exposed to while eating veggies and fruits. The overload of anti-nutrients and chemicals surpasses the body’s ability to detoxify itself. This causes toxic overload and the body is now unable to heal and repair itself. Imagine, happening this to a body that is already facing lifestyle disorders like diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, thyroid or PCOD.
This is where a multivitamin supplement comes to the rescue. One tablet has an extracted form of all essential nutrients that you otherwise don’t get from the food.
