4 Steps for Maintaining a Successful Vitamin Regimen
If a daily multivitamin is part of your morning routine, you should know: You can get more from your supplement – and even customize your vitamin regimen with nutrients that might be missing from your diet. Here’s how…
1. Talk to Your Doctor Before You Start
Your doctor can help you determine whether a daily multivitamin/multimineral supplement and other specific nutrient supplements are right for you, and help you avoid adverse interactions between supplements and any prescription medications you take.
2. Consider Your Needs
Consider your overall needs before choosing a daily foundational supplement. Look for one that provides nutrients that may be missing from your diet.
There are certain Phytonutrient and Concentrated supplements that may help you fill nutrient gaps – especially if you are not getting all the vitamin and minerals you need because you don’t eat the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies every day.
3. Follow Label Directions
This is crucial. If a supplement should be taken three times a day, you don’t need any more than that. And if the manufacturer recommends taking it with meals, it usually means the nutrients absorb better with food.
4. Consider a Timed-release Supplement
Taking vitamin C three times a day, for example, gives you valuable antioxidants around the clock. A timed-release vitamin C supplement ensures a steady stream of the nutrient in your body throughout the day.
Supplement benefits depend on your age, needs, lifestyle and typical diet. The bottom line: Being supplement-savvy means getting more from your supplements, every single day!
