Why Are Multivitamin Tablets Important?

Vitamin and mineral supplements taken in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle can help to support and promote general health and well-being throughout our lives.

Multivitamins are not taken as a treatment for any particular condition but are to help support our general health and well-being. They are like a top‐up to ensure we are getting what we need for optimal health.

To get the most benefit from taking a multivitamin it is good to choose the right formula for you. As men and women have different nutritional requirements and health concerns, it is ideal to choose a multivitamin that will target those specific needs.

For women and men

  • Nervous system
    B group vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12) support energy levels and may assist in supporting our nervous system function.
  • Energy
    Magnesium and iron are very important for energy levels. Women with heavy blood loss during menstruation may be low in iron. Potassium is an essential body electrolyte that also plays a role in the production of energy. The B group vitamins are also essential for the production of energy.
  • Antioxidants
    Antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium and beta‐carotene help to protect against cell damage and cell ageing caused by free radicals. Vitamin C is also essential for the production of collagen which is a component of our skin, blood vessels and bones.
  • Immunity
    Nutrients essential for supporting a healthy immune system include vitamins A, C and E and the minerals zinc and selenium.
  • Heart health and circulation
    Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to maintain a healthy heart, assists with blood circulation and can help to alleviate cold hands and feet.
  • Healthy weight
    The mineral chromium has a role in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism in the body. Iodine is a trace nutrient important for thyroid function. The thyroid gland produces hormones that affect our metabolic rate, body temperature, and protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Adequate iodine intake may help to regulate body weight via its effect on metabolic rate.
  • Bone health
    Calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D are all important nutrients essential for bone health and are important to help achieve and maintain bone density.
