Should you take vitamins or not—or are you relying completely on eating the right way and getting the proper nutrients from your daily diet?
When I was younger, my mom made sure we took vitamins; however, as I got older, I didn’t always take them anymore. Now that I’m married, my husband and I take vitamins regularly and I feel much better every day. Of course, we still try to eat healthy foods. With every meal, we make sure to have vegetables and we have salad with dinner. We work out at the gym three times a week and take a protein shake afterwards. Before we work out, we eat an energy bar and add a low-calorie, hydration endurance mix to the 16 ounces of water that we drink while we exercise. All this is great, but if you don’t take vitamins, are you helping or hurting yourself?
I think there are two schools of thought on this issue. Some people think that if you take vitamins all the time, your body eventually becomes immune to their helpful aspects and they become less effective. If you think that way, you can always take vitamins for a few months than stop for a few months and then get back onto taking them. Other people think that vitamins are highly effective and very necessary; especially since we do not get an adequate amount of nutrients in our daily diets. I think I’m somewhere in between both camps.
I have noticed that I feel much better when I am exercising regularly and taking my vitamins each day. When I don’t take my vitamins, I feel that I get headaches again. I suffer from migraines and take vitamins that have a high concentration of magnesium (balanced with enough calcium to counteract the effects of diarrhea) and they have helped in lessening and nearly dissipating my headaches altogether.
The vitamins we take have a patented formula that offers high levels of nutrients—this formula helps keep nutrients in a form that is easily accessible into our bodies and the nutrients break down in a way that allows your body to use them to its maximum potential. You don’t lose nutrients along the way like you do with other types of vitamins that don’t have this patented formula. If you’d like to know more about these vitamins, contact us.
So what do you think about this issue—taking vitamins or not taking them? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
