Benefits Of Taking a Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement

Every day, we all aim for balance, trying to eat right, exercise more, and sleep better.


We try to navigate through our days and weeks with as little stress as possible.


Even when we are doing our best, we often need a boost; we need to help our body to deal with the stress, poor sleep and dietary deficiencies that come from the modern busy life.


This is where supplements come in.





Multivitamin and mineral supplements are essential for disease prevention and health promotion. There is strong evidence from studies that all adults should take a regular multivitamin and mineral supplement. Vitamin and mineral intakes in the typical New Zealand diet are often not optimal, due to the increase in processed food and lack of nutrition from the soil that our foods are grown in. Although frank deficiency syndromes are relatively uncommon, supplemental micronutrients have been positively associated with improved health.


Inadequate micronutrient intake has been associated with fatigue, poor immune resistance, reduced ability to appropriately manage stress and increased incidence of chronic disease. The issue of vitamin and mineral deficiencies is compounded by the fact that modern lifestyles tend to increase requirements for many micronutrients hence supplementing with vitamins and minerals, makes sense. A Harvard University study recommends the daily use of multivitamin and mineral supplements for all adults, a practice that is justified by a large amount of scientific research.
