At Holland & Barrett, we know better than most just how many supplements there are out there. From cranberry to garlic, turmeric and fish oils to endless combinations of vitamins and minerals, deciding which one-a-day is best for your health can feel a little overwhelming. If you are not shopping with a specific ingredient in mind, you really cannot go wrong with a multivitamin.
Combining all thirteen of the vitamins that the body requires for good health, Holland and Barrett Multivitamin tablets take the confusion out of supplementation, providing you with a healthy dose of nutrients proven by science to support your wellbeing.
Multivitamins for all-round health
At different times in our lives, our bodies have different nutritional requirements. But what remains a constant is the need for the thirteen key vitamins – A, C, D, E, K and the eight B vitamins, sometimes referred to as the B vitamin complex.
While the amount of each we may need changes depending on our age, diet and circumstances, everybody’s body requires the full set for robust health. For example, vitamin C is required for keeping cells healthy, while vitamin D helps to maintain bone health and feeds our immunity.
Vitamin A looks after our vision and vitamin K is necessary for normal blood clotting. B vitamins, meanwhile, have a whole host of uses, not least in the processing of food to create the energy we need to thrive.
Nutrients that work together
While individually the nutrients we take in from food and supplements do amazing things to keep us well, they also know that teamwork makes the dream work. Certain vitamins are required by the body to help us absorb other nutrients, including essential minerals, meaning that a deficiency in one nutrient can have a knock-on effect, causing a potential deficit of another.
One such example of this is the relationship between vitamin C and iron. Many of us, and especially those with heavy or irregular periods, can find ourselves with a chronic iron deficiency, and so we turn to iron supplements to help. However, there are times when it is low levels of vitamin C preventing you from making good use of available iron supplies.
Vitamins and emotional health
While B complex vitamins can’t be considered a solution to low mood, Vitamins B6 and 12 are known to maintain normal psychological function in addition to their other benefits of reducing tiredness and fatigue and contributing to normal functioning of the nervous system. Did you know Vitamin C has the same health benefits too?
