What is a Multivitamin?

The human body has innumerable tasks it must complete on a daily, hourly, and minute-by-minute basis. Vitamins and minerals are the tools the body uses to get these jobs done, and multivitamins are made up of these essential vitamins and minerals. Obviously, humans have been around much longer than multivitamins—so they’re not essential for survival. We get most of what we need from our daily diets. But many individuals, even today, live with chronic vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can lead to health complications and poor health. That’s why multivitamins are so important.

Vitamins vs. Minerals

Multivitamins contain both vitamins and minerals. An area of frequent confusion is the difference between vitamins and minerals. We’re here today to dispel the confusion.

Vitamins are organic, minerals are inorganic. All vitamins are needed by our bodies for our very survival, while some minerals are only needed in trace amounts. The body uses vitamins to control chemical reactions within the body and to efficiently convert food into muscle and energy. Minerals, all of which are found on the periodic table, help to produce and regulate the body’s hormones.

The Verdict

Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of our bodies, but all of our bodies are somewhat different and we all have different needs. There is no one-size-fits all multivitamin, however certain multivitamins are geared specifically towards men and others are designed for women. NÜD, for instance, has a multivitamin specifically designed for the health needs of men and a multivitamin specifically designed for the health needs of women. Underlying it all is this simple fact: multivitamins are essential for both men and women looking to make positive changes in their health—whether those changes have to do with dieting, disease prevention, or getting in shape.
