Vitaminfood multivitamins contain complete B complex vitamins. Designed to deliver all the essential nutrients in their RDI quantities.
Vitamin supplements are the most common and most popular supplements in the world and across Europe as well. This is largely because of various campaigns running in the late 80s, 90s and early 2000s that professed multivitamin supplements to be the key to a longer healthier life. Well, the research studies conducted then and on which these messages were founded were accurate. But you know how it is with widespread media campaigns.
They easily become highly unregulated with blogs stating mild variations of the truth. In a short time, however, the truth and facts of the research studies become aggressively diluted. Only fragments of the truth remain here and there trying to hold the message together.
Multivitamins are very helpful and beneficial in maintaining good health. Various patients have confessed their role in helping them recover from terminal illnesses and some long-term ailments whose cure wasn’t known or whose clear diagnosis had not been found. They have helped lethargic people regain their strength and others recover sight from partial and near-whole blindness. Such true confessions are in abundance.
The extent of their effectiveness across a test sample has however been gravely exaggerated. Miracles like these don’t happen to everyone, otherwise, they’d not be miracles. However, a positive impact has been recorded across the majority of test subjects and the probability that multivitamins will significantly boost your health is more than 100%. It may not cure your cancer but it could help slow down the rate of progression and give you a few extra months of quality life. It might completely keep the cold away though.
Such is the state of multivitamin nutrition in the supplements market.
Whom are multivitamins for?
Multivitamins are for everyone who feels like their body can use a small immunity boost or some servicing for it to function optimally. Vitamins and minerals are the main components of multivitamin supplements. And Vitaminfood multivitamin capsules constitute 27 essential vitamins and minerals. These are needed for the smallest and the largest chemical reactions in the body as well. They are needed for transport and signaling.
All the tiny things that your body needs for efficiency, vitamins and minerals will most likely get you sorted. Ever noticed how a huge machine can keep running but the efficiency is so low (increasing the cost of running it). Well, that’s how our bodies are. As a whole, the body can keep running but not efficiently. Clogged vessels, slow impulse transmission, damaged cell membranes, macular degeneration, delayed sensitivity to hormones and so forth.
You live but only because the heart still pumps blood. All other systems are barely holding it together as they have inadequate vitamins and minerals needed for most reactions.
Special groups that might benefit more from multivitamins include:
- Vegans and vegetarians
Despite all the praise channeled to a plant-based diet, there are dangers that come with it. It is a very healthy and substantially less risky than a meat and animal dense diet. However certain nutrients like Vitamin B12 are more readily available in animal products than in plants because animals have already concentrated them.
Multivitamins help to compensate for the limited shortcomings of a plant-based diet while allowing to yet reap its benefits.
- Expectant women
Because of the higher nutrient demand to cater for the developing child, expectant women might in some cases and depending on the diet be unable to attain the daily required intake. If this happens for nutrients such as folic acid (B9), the child might develop neural tube defects. Expectant women are one of the groups that benefit highly from nutrient supplements themselves and their unborn fetus.
- Aging adults
With age comes several challenges. Among them is reduced absorption and storage capacity. This overtime exposes them to the risk of suffering nutrient deficiency which at this delicate stage of life may have irreversible damage.
Alzheimer’s, macular degeneration, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular heart diseases, hypertension are some of the conditions that older adults are susceptible to. Multivitamins have been shown to help wade off and regulate the rate of degeneration and aging.
- Malabsorption disorders
Including Celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s and cancer of the digestive tract. These may be genetic or due to exposure to substances that corrode and ruin the absorptive surfaces of the intestines. The result however is that one strains to have enough nutrients from dieting.
Why choose multivitamins
Vitaminfood multivitamin capsules are here to reduce the strife your body is facing. Having adequate amounts of everything doesn’t have to be stressful either. It is recommended that you get nutrients from fresh food and vegetables probably handpicked yourself from your local organic store.
However, you still run a risk of missing out on some nutrients. Vitaminfood prepares complete nutrition solutions so that you don’t suffer the risk of unknowingly being low on a specific nutrient. We have multivitamin capsules designed to give you the complete vitamin nutrient profile.
Vitaminfood multivitamins are not just basic gap fillers to compensate for some dietary insufficiency. They are if you wish them to be so, a secure path to achieving a complete nutrient profile. They are also not a replacement for balanced meals unless of course, you begin with meal replacement shakes solutions.
Get your D3, B12, Vitamin C folate, selenium and other phytonutrients all from Vitaminfood’s multivitamin capsules.
Vitamin supplements can help boost your brain function, reduce the risk of macular degeneration or slow down this decay, improve skin and general eye health, improve digestion and absorption, detoxify liver and kidneys and boost reproductive health among many other benefits.
There are two groups of vitamins:
- Fat-soluble which are transported by fat molecules and stored in the body together with fat cells. The body can accumulate these vitamins and a deficiency is less likely to be caused by an acute change in diet. These are Vitamins A, D, E & K
- Water-soluble – these can dissolve in water and are transported as solutions in water. As a result, the excess is washed off in urine and sweat because these are solutions of water.
They are also not stored in the body because of their solubility properties. The body lacking reserves of these vitamins can suffer a deficiency of one or more of these vitamins. You’ll need to regularly replenish these vitamins to ensure that you have enough. It can be stressful but with multivitamins like Vitaminfood vitamin capsules, it becomes much easier to maintain a complete profile. These include all B vitamins and Vitamin C.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the multi-purpose vitamins. Many animals can synthesize it from glucose but humans and a few other mammal species cannot.
It is useful for healing wounds by keeping the wound moist, shortens the duration of colds and acts as an enzyme cofactor for up to 11 unique enzymes.
Increased non-heme iron absorption is another benefit. Non-heme iron is only found in plants and is what most vegetarians and vegans utilize; it is however not readily absorbed but Vitamin C helps with that.
Vitamin C is also in high concentration in gastric juice; a digestive juice in the stomach. It prevents the formation of mutagenic nitrous compounds. This significantly lowers the risk of gastric cancer. This holds tor oral cavity, digestive tract and lung cancers too.
Its absorption requires sodium so ensure that you have adequate amounts too; it is however very rare to get sodium deficiency.
- The B Vitamins
This group of vitamins are mostly used in coenzyme functions but has vitamin-specific roles too.
Thiamin is used in:
- energy metabolism from carbohydrates and branched amino acids
- growth of cells.
Generally, promotes energy usage.
Deficiency is associated with alcoholism as alcohol lowers its absorption rate.
- coenzyme functions in neural and digestive system enzymatic activity.
- Coenzyme in numerous oxidation and reduction reactions involved especially in the breakdown of fats. (forms FAD - Flavin adenine dinucleotide)
- Co-substrate in hydrogen transfer or reactions involving hydrogen compounds.
- Treat high blood cholesterol levels
- Pantothenic acid
This is probably the least detectable vitamin.
- It is used as a coenzyme in cell metabolism (a constituent of Coenzyme A). This is involved in fatty acid metabolism.
- Pyridoxine, pyroxamine, and pyridoxal
- This is a major enzyme cofactor involved in over 100 different reactions because of its high work rate and turnover.
- Adequate amounts over one's life lead to reduced late-life depression.
Note; if you are deficient in this, you are probably deficient in more Vit B. Deficiency in pyridoxine is a rare occurrence though not impossible.
- Used as a coenzyme in reactions that involve carboxylation. These reactions form compounds that are later converted into keratin for nails and hair.
It is therefore useful for healthy hair and skin which are formed from keratin.
- Folic acid
B9 is recommended for women of child-bearing age who are fertile.
It is useful in preventing neural tube defects. This promotes spinal code growth for children and fetuses alike,
- Vitamin B12
- This is a primary requirement for energy metabolism.
- It is also useful in red blood cells formation and healthy bone marrow where red blood cells are produced.
- B12 is also administered to cure aches and megaloblastic anemia.
Vegetarians and vegans are listed as the top classes of people likely to have a deficiency. This is because very few plants have the enzymes necessary for B12 formation.
- Fat-soluble – Vitamin A, D, E and K
Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed into the body in the small intestines through the lacteals and lymph channels. They have protein covers as carriers during transportation. Excesses of these fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the liver and fat tissues thereby maintaining a reserve for them.
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin A is useful in maintaining visual acuity and especially for night vision. It nourishes and services the retina which is responsible for visual clarity.
- It is likewise important for healthy bones, a robust immune system and healthy pregnancy (fetal development).
- Vitamin D
Vitamin D is not easily obtained from diets except for seaweed, some fish e.g salmon, tuna and crustacean lobster.
It is readily synthesized by our skin in the presence of ultraviolet B rays(UVB). UVB is from the sun between 10 a.m to 2 p.m. This sun could however scotch the skin and the rays increase skin disease risks. These both make it difficult to synthesize Vitamin D as sunscreen shields the skin from producing the rays.
You can however put on light and dark colored sleeved shirts and pants when going out at these times.
Vitamin D is useful in:
- increasing the absorption of calcium in the stomach.
- Hormone properties; Vitamin D is more than just a vitamin. Recent studies have shown that it has hormonal properties
- Cardiovascular and immune system health.
- Vitamin E
It has very high antioxidant properties.
- This makes it vital for cell protection as a free radical detoxifier. Vitamin E readily neutralizes free radicals by stabilizing them.
- Vitamin E also promotes healthy skin growth, absorption of Vit A and reproduction and fertility health, red blood cell formation and utilization of calcium by the body.
- Vitamin K
We bleed and then the bleeding stops naturally especially for trivial external injuries.
Vitamin K is key to the clotting process and to the production of prothrombin which is a coagulant factor. Prothrombin is then converted to a serine thread-like compound that seals the wound.
