5 Reasons to Avoid Multivitamins and Instead Get Nutrients Naturally

We’re always told multivitamins work for every stage in our lives. Children need their Flintstones. Teenagers need more calcium. Pregnant and breastfeeding women have multis with added iron, folate and omega-3’s. Elderly people need more calcium and potassium. Why weren’t we simply born with a pill box in hand, and how in the world did people get healthy before multivitamins were concocted?
Multivitamins are absolutely unnecessary, unless you are treating a specific condition therapeutically. What is necessary, in fact, are plenty of whole, unprocessed foods, variety, sunshine, movement and happiness. The body processes food much better when clean and free of stress, anger, and negative emotions. Here are some reasons not to take multivitamins:

5.) “Lack of proof that they actually work”


This one of the reasons that would make you ask the question, do multivitamins work?

Artificial nutrients or multivitamins as they are popularly called have the same chemical composition as our naturally occurring nutrients however they are very different to the way plants and animals produce them despite all the similarities, therefore your body might react to it differently to the synthetic nutrients.

Also, it’s unclear how well the body absorbs these artificial nutrients.

The reason is while consuming naturally occurring foods, you taking a whole range of other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients  which aids the body in making optimal use of the given nutrients, while the same cannot be said for its artificial counterpart as they only contain the vitamin specified and nothing more than that, so it’s unlikely the multivitamins will be used the same way by the body, or in some scenarios not utilized by the body at all resulting to a total waste of money.

There is surprisingly little proof that multivitamins even prevent disease or chronic issues, which is what the taker is often attempting to do, and often spending quite a lot of money in doing so. Look to research and real, whole foods for real answers.
