The Truth About Multivitamins

multivitamins
Millions of Americans take a daily multivitamin, but why? Most Americans pop the pill because they believe that it has an array of health benefits attached to it, but studies show that it may not be true.

Whether you are trying to up your daily intake of calcium and Vitamin D for healthy teeth and bones, or are trying to amp up your iron, switching to a pill may not be the answer. Most supplement users choose to take supplements as their own personal choice, not as a recommendation from their doctor.

The argument lies in the fact that you should be getting all your vitamins and nutrients from your diet. Instead of spending money on a monthly supply of vitamins, you could purchase some healthy greens, or a nice piece of fish.

Supplements cannot take the place of the nutrients and vitamins that you receive from your daily diet. Ask your dentist about things you can add to your diet for strong and healthy teeth.
