Food Label Friday: Get Enough

What is “enough”?

That question applies to many things in life, but in this case we are talking vitamins and minerals.

Did you know that RDA’s (Recommended Daily Allowance) that are on food labels are based on the minimum amount required to prevent disease in a normally healthy body?

In other words if you don’t want to get scurvy, take the RDA of Vitamin C.

But what happens when you exercise? What happens when you are stressed out? What happens when you are sick?

Studies show that you need more than the RDA to thrive, not just survive under those circumstances.

And despite what you may have heard, taking a good multivitamin does more than line the manufacturers pockets. All those vitamins, minerals – phytonutrients – are important to make sure all the chemical processes in your body work and that you remain healthy.

I am not a pill pusher. No supplement is going to overcome poor eating. But I do recommend you take a good whole food multivitamin every day.
