Have You Taken Your Vitamins? Why You Need Multivitamin Supplements

Performance MultivitaminsEmerging science of human biochemistry has finally caught up with what most progressive health practitioners have known for quite some time: Americans suffer from different forms of vitamin deficiencies, and aren’t even aware of it.

Discussing multivitamins and supplements is sometimes difficult because the first obstacle is being able to cut through the bad press and mixed messages.

The New York Times wrote an article titled, “Don’t Take Your Vitamins,” mentioning a number of studies that correlated the use of supplementation to an increased risk of death.  This is not only poor reporting, this type of sensationalism has been refuted extensively in literature reviews like the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Here is a brief list of the KNOWN benefits of a solid supplementation program:

— Omega 3 fatty acids are recognized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce triglycerides and lower the risk of heart attacks.

— B-complex vitamins improve cognitive function and reduce brain atrophy associated with aging.

— Calcium and Vitamin D reduce bone loss, particularly in women.

— Vitamins C and E have been shown to reduce macular degeneration (eye disease).

— Folate and B12 are used in the treatment of depression.

But as I always say, don’t take it from me, take it from the laboratories of the future … elite athletes. More than ever, high-level athletes incorporate supplementation programs as part of their overall diet and health.

And even us less elite athletes are doing our best. Personally, as I recover from hip surgery, I am using the same supplements we recommend to assist in my recovery.
