Think of the foods that are considered the absolute healthiest. Things like kale, avocado, blueberries, and other superfood fruits and veggies come to mind. Why are these so healthy? Because they are nutrient-dense.
The vitamins and nutrients found in the food we eat can help fulfill the daily recommended intake we need to help our bodies function well. Unfortunately, you could still not be getting the adequate amount of nutrients your body needs and not even realize it due to a number of factors, including poor diet and genetics.
There are some warning signs of nutrient deficiency, but it’s always best talk to your healthcare provider to determine whether or not you’re getting the right nutrients and get advice on increasing your nutrient intake, if necessary. Unfortunately, sometimes dietary restrictions or your lifestyle may prevent you from getting all the nutrients you need. For example, vegetarians may lack a source of iron in their diets because they don’t eat meat, or if you are constantly on the go and eating “empty calorie” foods, you may also may be missing out on key nutrients.
And even if you are eating healthy and chowing down on all kinds of veggies, there is still a chance you may not be getting the right amount of daily nutrients for a number of other reasons. Taking a daily multivitamin like Centrum® Multivitamins provides key nutrients needed to support your overall health. Not a fan of pills? No worries, Centrum® MultiGummies® are gummy multivitamins that taste delicious.
Now, when it comes to nutrients, men and women need different things. It can also vary depending on your age, so it’s important to get the right mix of nutrients in the right amounts. For example, women generally require more calcium than men do. If you’re not quite sure which multivitamin you should take, Centrum® has an easy tool to help you find the best product for your gender, age, and goals.
