If I could choose only 1 thing that I'd like my patients to do this year to rebuild their health after the last 2 years, it would be to upgrade their multivitamins." ~ Dr. Ferguson
Vitamins and minerals maintain normal cell function and support the immune system, metabolism, and optimal health. Without these essential nutrients, our bodies and wellness are impaired. The recommended levels are the bare minimum of what your daily intake should be and yet, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)...
70% of us do not meet the recommendations for Vitamin D
38–45% are not getting enough Calcium and Magnesium
60% do not consume enough vitamin E
Especially given our busy lives, a multivitamin can help close this nutritional gap.
Not all multivitamins are created equal.
Upgrade your multivitamin now for better results. Big box store vitamins might seem financially savvy, but is it health savvy? Supplements are not regulated so it is important to go with a reputable company when choosing yours. You could spend hours doing research or... read on and I will give you my recommendations.
