Multivitamins, Do we need them? Some recent news stories would suggest that we do not; others proclaim that we absolutely do! Let's get down to basics. Do you eat a perfectly balanced diet every day? And if you do eat healthy foods, are you certain those foods contain all the nutrients your body requires for maintenance, repair, and in children, growth? We all should know that balanced nutrition is the key to vibrant health and immunity from deficiency and disease. A high quality multivitamin and mineral supplement can be an important starting point.
As the kids head back to school, they will be exposed to a host of germs, viruses, and pathogens; and they will be bringing them home to you!
