Vitamins and other supplements are so popular these days that it can be hard to separate what's helpful from what's merely "hype-ful." Ideally, humans would eat wholly nutritious diets rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. On the one hand, nutrition experts agree that the best possible way to get vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients is through food. That's because your body absorbs vitamins and minerals most easily from food. But for certain people and in certain situations, supplementing with a multivitamin may be a good idea. These people do not meet all their nutritional needs through their food.
They fill up on junk food and sugary snacks while skimping on whole grains, fruits, and veggables whilst on meal
As a result, many of us rely on multivitamins and supplements to achieve more complete nutrition.
However, the marketing and producing of multivitamins are not regulated by government.
The contents of this nutritional value 'good for you' is questionable.
