Yesterday I told you about an amazing multivitamin test. This was unusual because it was a stunning missed opportunity.

The results showed very little potential for cancer prevention with the Silver Center. But if the highest quality brand were used … Well. Who knows?

That said, I don’t know anyone who considers multivitamins to be cancer pills or heart disease pills.

So why do we take a multivitamin every day?

I can think of three excellent reasons …

Logic with vitamin deficiency

Recently, I came across a multivitamin removal by columnist K?ta Butler. It gives us the perfect platform to show why the use of multivitamins makes sense.

I will empty the three key shots that Mrs. Butler takes …

Shot One: Quotes nutritionist Marion Nestle, who claims that multivitamins are not necessary because vitamin deficiency is rare.

Yes, cases of rickets and scurvy are rare. But these are the extremes of vitamin deficiency. Nutritionists agree that vitamin D deficiency is a chronic problem that appears to play a role in many diseases.

It is also difficult to maintain vitamin C levels overnight.

Vegetarians risk vitamin B12 deficiency if they don’t use the supplement.

Despite the strong strengthening of folic acid in our entire food supply, additional folic acid supplementation reduces birth defects.

In addition, many medications lower vitamin levels. So how should our society obsessed with drugs deal with this? Eat more? Or we could simply simplify a daily multivitamin.

Second shot: Butler cites two studies that stated that multivitamins do not protect against heart disease or lung, breast and colorectal cancer.

Okay, first of all, none of these studies was a placebo-controlled intervention study. It is unreasonable to use multivitamin surveys to prevent serious diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

But some vitamins and minerals contained in multivitamins support heart health and help strengthen the immune system in the fight against cancer and other chronic diseases.

The highlight of this research is that we take multivitamins for various health problems. We take them to support cognitive health, eye health, bone health, digestive health and prevention of type 2 diabetes, to name a few.

Third shot: multivitamins may not be safe.

Brother Butler provides a link to the National Institutes of Health website on multivitamin / mineral supplements (MVM). In the section titled “Can MVM be harmful?” I found this quote: “Taking basic MVM is unlikely to pose any health risk.”

“Nuff said. But I have to say it … Funny!

Our happiness is that we can easily ensure that our intake of vitamins and minerals is on an equal footing. But listen to the lesson from the Silver Center study. Daily multi is almost nothing unless you take a high-quality supplement.
