I suppose as a sales person, I should say "Why, of course you do!". But here is the scoop and what is involved in a vitamin.
Most people, if they are eating a variety of whole foods (especially home grown or farmer's market) and exercising regularly should be getting vitamins and minerals from their food. However, not everyone fits into this category. If you are working on weight loss, it is important to create a calorie deficit. By moving more and eating smart, you will start to lose weight. Until you reach your maintenance goal, you will need to fill in the nutritional gaps with a supplement.
Growning children also require time,energy and lots of nutrients. It can be difficult to keep up with the needs of a growing child and to fill the gaps supplement will be needed.
If you are very active or an athlete, you deplete nutrients more quickly and will need a multivitamin to fill in any gaps you may have.
Please remember that not all supplements are created equal. One of the biggest issues I see with supplements is the ability to be absorbed and utilized by the body. Often times companies cut corners to save money. This causes the supplement to be either broken down at an improper time, not at all or with improper dosages. With nutrients not being absorbed at the right time, in the right place, your money literally gets flushed down the toilet.
Dotfit provides every person with a screening process as well as a product guide so there is access to all your supplement questions. By using scientific testing, all products can be used together with out over lapping or canceling out any supplements. Random vitamins and minerals are not crammed into one pill with hope for the best. No, they know what works well and what does not via scientific testing so that you get the most out of your supplement. Also, most of Dotfit products are third party tested. This not only means that what is on the label is exactly what is in the bottle, but also means that they are tested to be free of contaminants and banned substances.
While getting your vitamins and minerals from whole foods is always your best choice, there are also several reasons you may also have a nutritional gap to fill. Fill this gap with a quality product specifically designed to do what it says, in the dosages and potency required. Cheaper does not always mean better. Shop dotFit!
