Multivitamins 101

MULTIVITAMINS: ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SUPPLEMENTS TO TAKE EVERY DAY!

WHY DO I NEED THEM?

In this day in age, where most people’s diets consists of large amounts of simple sugar and fast food, the goal of supplying the body with proper amounts of vitamins and minerals usually falls far short of the mark. Because of this, I would definitely recommend consuming a high-potency multivitamin every single day.

WHAT DO VITAMINS EVEN DO?

Now, although everyone knows we need vitamins, very few know exactly what they do. So for those of you that donโ€™t really know what a vitamin is, basically your body is one giant mass of chemical reactions. There are thousands of these reactions going on at all times with the goal of keeping you alive and healthy. In order for these reactions to occur efficiently, the body relies on the use of enzymes. The job of an enzyme is to speed up the rate of chemical reactions within the body. It does this by lowering the amount of energy that is needed for the reaction to occur.

Simply put, without enzymes you’d be dead, and very fast. An enzyme is made of protein and an attached “co-enzyme”. The co-enzyme alters the shape of the protein so that the enzyme can perform its job properly. Another name given to a co-enzyme is a vitamin.

OKAY… BUT DOES IT AFFECT MY GAINS?

In the grand scheme of things, vitamins allow your enzymes to perform properly, and this allows all of the chemical reactions going on in your body to be performed efficiently. This means that if your body is deficient in just one vitamin, it will literally affect hundreds of reactions within your body. Now can you see why vitamins are so important? I’m not just talking about overall health in general; vitamins have a direct effect on many important muscle-building and fat burning processes as well.
