How is your diet?
The foods you eat should be your main source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. The vitamin and mineral supplements do not replace a good diet. However, some people can not maintain an adequate diet and need.
* If you do not eat meat, dairy or other animal foods, their diet may be deficient in vitamins D and B12, calcium, iron and zinc. Ask your doctor if you should receive a supplement.
* If it looks like you are always on a diet to lose weight, may have nutritional problems. When limiting calories, nutrition also limited. It is likely that people who have less than 1,200 calories per day are receiving all the nutrients they need from food.
Even if you’re trying to lose weight. Make sure your diet to meet their nutritional needs and talk to your doctor about a supplement.
* Avoid food groups? Doing so may have some vitamin deficiency. Is it possible to add these foods back into your diet?. For example, many people have problems when taking milk can drink lactose-free milk or take tablets to help digest dairy products.
But if you just can not take food from a specific group, ask your doctor about a supplement of multivitamins and minerals.
* Eating lots of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins is the key to good nutrition. Experts recommend eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables. If you can not do this, a supplement can help you replace missing nutrients.
