Why You Need A Better MultiVitamin #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

I’m sure you have all seen the headlines about several major retailers misleading their customers when it comes to their supplement lines.

Personally, I wasn’t that surprised. Although one is a popular supplement store, I don’t consider any of them supplement experts, nor have I or will I buy supplements there. With as much money as people in the fitness industry spend on their daily supplement stacks, it is imperative to know what you are buying is in fact quality!

My go to for ALL my supplement needs has been and is Saturn Supplements. A trusted source in the fitness and supplement industry for over 25 years! They are available in 20 countries and growing. They offer a unique line of products specifically designed for athletes and health-minded individuals demanding high level performance from themselves and the products they take.

I think one of the most over looked supplements, is your multivitamin. Almost half of adults take a multivitamin. I have seen so many who take opt for the lower quality big names, instead of doing their research and finding what is best! Here are several reasons that the big name popular brand multivitamins are not worth the bottle they are filled in….

~ Strange Ingredients ~ Many of the cheaper multivitamins are filled with artificial colors and fillers. You will always see an “Other Ingredients” list on your multi bottle. If it is a mile long, then put it back! The vitamin list should ALWAYS be the long one 😉

~ Single Small Pill ~ To fit all the nutrition into a small pill, manufacturers will use synthetic ingredients that are A. cheaper and B. take up less room. To make the pills so small, they compress them. To do that they use synthetic fillers and binders. To top it off, most get what is called a”pharmaceutical glaze”, you know to make it pretty and shiny. It is a shellac of sorts. It actually can prevent your body from absorbing the nutrients. A great example is if the ingredients list Vitamin D, it may list D2 which is a synthetic vs D3 which is the same natural Vitamin D your body produces when you are out in the sun.

~ Don’t Always Have The Nutrients You Need ~ There are key micronutrients that you should always look for. Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and Iron. These play important roles in preventing chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

You may be asking yourself if taking a multivitamin is actually necessary? It has been reported that 10% or more of the U.S. population is deficient in these five nutrients: Zinc (12%), Vitamin B6 (14%) Vitamin C (31%), Vitamin A (44%), Magnesium (56%) and Vitamin E, where 93% of the U.S. population simply does not get enough Vitamin E from their diets.

I know I personally do not always eat plenty of veggies and fruit. And with my macro counting, I do have a fiber amount that I have to hit daily, but sometimes I figure out other ways to hit it outside of the healthier options. Therefore, I know that I lack in certain micronutrients on certain days. I also know how important it is to make sure I am covering them. You can look at it as an insurance of sorts. We all know that these micronutrients are important for our bodies to function properly. My multivitamin of choice is Saturn Supplements One-Source
