Multivitamins and Minerals
Multivitamins and minerals is an optimized preparation intended to supplement a diet with vitamins, dietary minerals, and other nutritional elements, and was specifically formulated for those who are dealing with impaired absorption of nutrients.
By supplementing the diet with additional vitamins and minerals, multivitamins can be a valuable tool for those with dietary imbalances or different nutritional needs. People with dietary imbalances may include those on restrictive diets and those who cannot or will not eat a nutritious diet.
Scientific data indicate that long-term vitamin and mineral supplement users show markedly better health than people who take no supplements. Clinical trials demonstrate that after adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use is associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.
