Preventative Health Supplements: Preventing
Because people rarely get all of the vitamins and nutrients they need from
the foods they eat, taking a daily multivitamin and/or dietary supplement
may be essential to staying healthy. With the fast-paced nature of
modern-day life, taking the time to prepare nutritious meals is often
compromised, forcing many to eat fast food and make unhealthy food choices.
Other reasons people don't get the nutrients and vitamins they need include
· Many of us just want to indulge in a delicious treat that we know isn't
good for us.
· Some people make bad food choices because they simply can't afford
healthier food options, given that organic foods tend to be more expensive.
· Some people suffer from underlying diseases and/or conditions that
prevent our bodies from being able to properly extract nutrients from
Regardless of the reason, the fact is that most people don't get enough of
the vitamins they need. While the body can balance out the occasional
vitamin deficiency, if vitamin deficiencies persist for years, people can
be at risk of developing serious health problems.
Conditions Caused by Vitamin Deficiencies
Here is a list of some of the common conditions caused by a lack of vitamin
deficiencies cause nyctalopia (the inability to see in the dark or
at night) and, if left untreated, eye infections, respiratory tract
infections and blindness.
deficiencies cause severe inflammation, abdominal pain and, in some cases,
seizures. Overtime, a lack of vitamin B can damage the central nervous
system (CNS), causing hallucinations and dementia.
deficiencies cause joint pain, insomnia, nausea and depression.
deficiencies cause irritability, and over time softens the bones, making
these people more susceptible to bone breaks.
deficiencies cause general swelling, skin lesions and muscle weakness.
deficiencies make it difficult for the body to coagulate blood (form a
scab) to stop excessive bleeding. A lack of vitamin K can be extremely
serious, causing hemophilia and possibly death if bleeding isn't stopped.
Keep in mind that the above list of health complications caused by vitamin
deficiencies is by no means comprehensive. A lack of a number of other
nutrients, such as calcium, phosphorus and selenium, can also cause serious
Similarly, each individual reacts differently to vitamin deficiencies,
depending on his or her age, race and overall health. While vitamin
deficiencies may cause severe problems in one person, others can go on for
years enduring minor symptoms. However, given enough time, vitamin
deficiencies will eventually cause serious, irreversible damage.
Illness Prevention with Vitamin Supplements
Given the consequences of vitamin deficiencies, taking a daily multivitamin
and taking other dietary supplements is key to staying healthy and warding
off serious health complications. If you are thinking about starting a
vitamin regimen or want to change your current supplement, be sure to talk
to your doctor first.
Your current age, gender, race and general health status will determine
what nutrients and vitamins you need or don't need to get. For example,
while a pre-menopausal woman will need to up her calcium and vitamin B
intake, a man of the same age will need to increase his vitamin D and
vitamin K intake. As a result, the elderly woman will strengthen her bones
and ward off osteoporosis, as the man boosts his immune system function.
Also, keep in mind that you will need to inform your doctor if you are
currently taking prescription medication, as he can suggest multivitamins
and dietary supplements with minimal or no side effects.
