In an ideal world, you’d eat a nutritionally balanced diet, minimize stress, exercise regularly, and enjoy plenty of sleep. But in the real world, this is often difficult. When you lack key nutrients, feel stressed or are sleep-deprived, your immune system can suffer, increasing your susceptibility to illness and fatigue.
A balanced, healthy diet can provide the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and other key nutrients you need for a long, healthy life. But, if you can’t always eat healthily, you may want to add a supplement.
We all have different nutritional needs. You may be looking for a general multivitamin to help you maintain good health or for products specifically developed for your age, health concern or dietary need. It’s important to choose the product that is right for you.
