Multivitamins, are medicinal dietary preparations of many vitamins in a single form along with other minerals. They may be available in the form of injections, syrups, powders, tablets and capsules.
Vitamins as known to all are the natural nutrients that help in body growth, development and normal functioning of your body as a whole. They are naturally available to you through your food if you care to take a regular balanced diet.
Multivitamins are prescribed for people who show a need for an added vitamin nutrition. People who do not get the required amount of vitamins in their diet or cannot use the vitamin in their diet due to any illness or any other reason, growing children or pregnant women, all may be benefited with multivitamins.
Your doctor can prescribe the correct multivitamin and the daily dosage for your typical case. Usually a list, amount and ratio of the components in a multivitamin are provided on the label or a leaflet of the pack.
A dose of a multivitamin supplement may usually be a mixture of the following: vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D3, E, H (biotin), K1, betacarotene, borax, calcium carbonate, citrus bioflavonoids extract, cupric sulfate anhydrous, folic acid, hydrochloride, iron, magnesium, picolinate, potassium iodide, selenomethionine, sulfate monohydrate, trioxide, zinc oxide.
Most multivitamins come at an affordable cost and in turn can assure you of an added nutrition to your body and aid in the general well-being of your body.
Though multivitamins contain a lot of essential vitamins and minerals, they cannot be considered to be a complete alternative to the vitamin you look for, from your diet. Your diet may actually provide you with certain vitamins that may not be otherwise available in your multivitamin dose.
