HOW TO PICK A GOOD MULTI-VITAMIN
In a perfect world, we could eat whatever we want, always be healthy, and never have to take any supplements. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Modern agricultural and farming techniques have stripped the soil of nutrients and minerals that support healthy plant growth. Depleted soil results in depleted crops which then leaves our bodies lacking essential vitamins and minerals. Even if we had a perfect diet of whole foods, we could still benefit from a quality multi-vitamin. A daily supplement can boost your immune system, help improve your quality of sleep and increase your energy levels.
With so many options available, it is difficult to know what to look for, or even compare different brands. There are some key ingredients which you should look our for, if your goal is to improve your mood or energy levels.
Iron is an important component of a good multi-vitamin as it provides increased energy levels and improves brain function. Iron requirements may fluctuate with age and certain life events like pregnancy. Vegetarians and vegans may particularly benefit from a daily supplement containing iron.
B-12 vitamin is a great energy booster. It helps form red blood cells and also converts fat and protein to energy. It is always a good idea to take these supplements in the morning since you don’t want it to affect your sleep.
Magnesium plays such an important role in the body. This amazing mineral supports both the muscular and nervous systems as well as helping in the production of energy. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure, which are increasingly important issues to keep under control as we age.
The RLS-multi is a complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula that includes all the essential components of a quality supplement, including iron. This is one ingredient which is not always present in multi- vitamins. It also contains 17 other vitamins and minerals like a range of B vitamins, vitamin C, Zinc, etc. An additional bonus ingredient, not found in other supplements, is the RLS-H Formula which is a magnesium-based blend providing support to your muscular and nervous systems.
