Vitamin Supplements - we can find them everywhere. In the supermarkets, drugstores and health food shops. A sufficient vitamin supply is essential for our health and the activitys of all important metabolism processes of our body. If we keep up with a healthy diet, sporty activities and enough sleep we are on the right way to a vibrant look and feel. But different circumstances in our life like stress, illness, too much fast food, smoking and a raised alcohol consumption often leads to an undersupply of this important substances. And this can lead to harmful effects for our well-being.
Eating five portions of fruits, plenty of vegetables and whole grain products on a regular basis is not always easy to fulfill. Peoples lifestyle are just too hectic and the daily strain often too high. So eventually we'll get a lack of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which can lead to a weak immune system making it much easier for pathogens to enter our body. I don't like this thouuuught ! Some pathogens attacking me ? No way ! I could say now, I'm packing my bags, run over to the market and buy out all the fruits and vegetables they have, cook whole day, become the Master of Veggies, and end up looking like a green cucumber at the end of the day with a belly as large as a melon :-))
Another option would be to bring in some vitamin supplements additionally to your daily food. These preparations contain a balanced composition of vital substances to compensate deficiencies of valuable nutrients. Depending on our age and lifestyle there are many kinds of preparations to suit our needs.To look and feel young for a long time a sufficient vitamin E and C supply as well as calcium and magnesium are essential in our daily nutrition. And pregnant woman for example need a good supply of folic acid to avoid complications during their pregnancy. Men again have different demands here, like decreasing the risk of prostate cancer by the intake of enough vitamin D.
If you decide to take in some preparations to your nutrition it's best to choose those which are naturally based. These products contain ingredients of high quality and are best for your health. I remember when I was a Teenie I got curious and took some colored pills to keep my complexion looking nice. The package told me it would be so ! I end up having red colored spots all over my face the next day, looking like Bloody Mary :-(( To avoid this strange experience I recommend you to stay on the safe side and look out for vitamin supplements with high quality ingredients.
A healthy and varied diet provides us with all the good nutrients we need to feel fit a activ. Still, we can't leave out the possibility of having a deficiency of important vital substances. In this case it is good to add some food supplements to your nutrition, but by no means should you eat fast food on mass, thinking the intake of some preparations will be enough to keep your body healthy. Vitamin supplements are not a substitute for healthy nutrition. They just support the vitamin supply to keep your body in balance.
My recommendation for vitamin supplements.
You should also consider this if you decide to loose weight and having a diet. Changing your eating habits is good but make sure you provide yourself with all important trace elements and minerals you need to stay fit. Because a diet always means stress for your system and can easily lead to a substantial lack of vitamins. So be smart, stay on guard, check your food list and then...vitamins you won't miss :-)
