Benefits of Taking Multivitamins

By December 18, 2023 No Comments

Vitamins and minerals are substances your body needs to survive, grow, and work the way it should. Different vitamins and minerals have different jobs, affecting everything from your nerves and bones to how well your blood clots.

Eating a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains should provide the vitamins and minerals you need. But if you can’t always eat healthy meals, taking supplements might help.

What Happens to Your Body When You Start Taking Vitamins?

Vitamins are necessary for many of your bodily functions. If you are short on essential nutrients in your diet, taking a multivitamin will help you:

Maintain organ and vision health

Vitamin A is essential for vision, immune function, and communication between your cells. It also plays an important role in maintaining the health of your heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

Have a healthy baby

Folic acid taken in the first months of pregnancy helps prevent certain birth defects of the brain and spine. It’s essential for anyone who is or might become pregnant. The recommended RDA is 400 micrograms or 100% DV.

Maintain strong bones

A multivitamin can help you get enough calcium and vitamin D, which work together to keep bones strong and ward off osteoporosis (bone thinning). Calcium builds bone and vitamin D helps your bones absorb calcium.

Calcium needs are especially high for teens, who need 1,300 milligrams a day, and for women over age 50 and men over age 70, who need 1,200 milligrams daily. One cup of milk or fortified juice contains about 300 milligrams. A typical multivitamin may contain 200 to 300 milligrams along with some vitamin D. Separate calcium supplements might have 500 milligrams or 600 milligrams and might be combined with vitamin D as well.

Support your immune system

Your immune system won’t work as well as it should to fight off infections and other health problems if you don’t get enough vitamins and minerals — including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K; folate; and copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, selenium, and zinc.

Some studies suggest that if you regularly take vitamin C, your colds might be shorter and milder, but that taking the vitamin when you are already sick doesn’t help.
