Our bodies are complex living organisms. Our vital organs and tissues need a constant supply of several essential vitamins in order to generate new cells, ward off disease, and remain healthy.
We get these essential vitamins through the foods we eat. In a perfect world, we would eat perfectly balanced meals that contain just the right amount of each vitamin that we need.
But of course we don't live in a perfect world. Our hectic schedules have us eating fast food and other things that are poor sources of essential vitamins. And of course there are certain foods that all of simply do not like (usually the ones that are the most vitamin rich).
Since our meals don't supply the vitamins that our bodies require, we build up vitamin deficiencies that often lead to all sorts of health problems (cardiovascular disease, immune system problems, and even cancer for example).
While there is no substitute for eating a well balanced diet, vitamin supplements can help us fill in the nutritional gaps left by poor eating habits.
And while multivitamin supplements work very well for many people, others are better served by taking individual supplements of specific vitamins, including the B vitamins and vitamins C and E.
It is strongly recommended that you consult your physician and/or nutritionist to help determine which vitamins you should add to your supplement regimen (and equally important which ones not to take).
