Support Your Immune System: Multivitamin/Mineral

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

Even the most conscientious, healthy eaters may have a hard time getting all the vitamins and minerals required to prevent disease and illness. Eating right is the first line of defense against all bugs, but a good multivitamin/mineral can provide some assurance against nutrient deficient diseases like rickets and scurvy. Look for a multivitamin that contains at least 100% of the required daily allowance (RDA) for vitamins A, C, D, E and your B vitamins. Choose one that is iron-free unless you are pregnant, or have been tested for iron deficiency. Taking a multivitamin more than once per day can help keep water-soluble vitamins in your system longer. Look for one that is designed to take multiple times during the day. Take your multivitamin with meals and a full glass of water to ensure proper digestion.
