Vitamins can help us find balance again and can play an important role in our health. For example, iron is a vital element for muscle health, vitamin C can aid absorption of iron. Vitamin D deficiency can cause low levels of calcium and phosphorous in the body, which can lead to weak bones and dental problems. Vitamin B12 can help us with energy and managing the body’s stress, and folate can aid in a healthy prenatal development. There are so many vitamin options available to us and millions of other brands for us to choose from. How do we know which ones are good and which ones to stay away from?
It is important to note that before you start taking supplements, you should always check with your medical doctor first.
The kind and type of supplement you take is important. Although some supplement at mass merchandise stores or generic branded supplements might seem inexpensive, most will not produce the results that you ultimately want. One of the reasons is because most supplements only contain a portion of active vitamins. The reason for this is that most of the over-the-counter supplements only contain a fraction of the active vitamin. It is like buying a whole apple and you only getting less than half of what you want.
Instead of the real active vitamin, the rest of the supplement is comprised with chemicals, fillers, and other synthetic ingredients. You have to ask, why is this important? It is because other by-products were added to that vitamin to fill in the gaps and plump it up. This makes it cheaper to produce and sell to the end consumer. As the old saying goes “You get what you pay for”. At Smartvita we offer the best natural vitamins around.
