Why You Need Puritan’s Pride Organic Adult Multi
As part of our first fully organic line, Puritan’s Pride offers a multivitamin with adults in mind with 100% of the daily recommended values of essential vitamins and minerals including vitamins D, B12, and B-6 and iodine. That means support for your heart, immune system, bones, nervous system, and more.** In addition to the essential vitamins and minerals that help support an active lifestyle, our formulation is enriched with a powdered blend of more than 15 different organic fruits and vegetables.
More than 15 Organic Fruits and Vegetables
Our Puritan’s Pride Organic Adult Multivitamin includes a powdered blend of more than 15 different organic fruits and vegetables. The organic blend includes a variety of “superfood” ingredients, such as organic goji berry and organic acai, as well as cruciferous vegetables, such as organic broccoli, and leafy greens, including organic spinach and kale.
Special Fermentation Blend
A special fermentation blend incorporates the organically sourced vitamins and minerals found in Puritan’s Pride Organic Adult Multi. Fermentation has historically been an important contributor of nutrients in our diets. Some vitamins, such as vitamin B-12, are provided naturally in the diet entirely from fermented foods directly or from animals that use fermentation as part of their digestive processes.
Are You Getting Enough Vitamins and Minerals?
If you’re not currently taking a multivitamin, then chances are that you might not be getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet. According to USDA’s national survey data, only a small percentage of U.S. adults meet dietary recommendations for all of the essential vitamins and minerals. The majority of us fell short on a variety of nutrients that included vitamins A, C, D, E, and zinc.
The major culprit behind the lack of nutrients in our diets was the overconsumption of “empty calories” from overly processed foods that are high in calories, solid fats, and added sugars. Alcoholic beverages play a role in adding discretionary calories too. General recommendations are to cut more of these empty calories out and replace them with nutrient-dense foods such as whole fruits and vegetables.
Based on USDA’s national survey data, those who take multivitamins and other dietary supplements were more likely to meet nutrient recommendations. Apart from fortification of foods, multivitamins are demonstrated to be the most effective method for dramatically improving nutritional status in individuals.
Why Take a Multivitamin?
While the majority of U.S. adults consume enough daily to meet or exceed caloric requirements, our choice of foods don’t always provide enough of the essential vitamins and minerals to meet recommendations for daily intake. According to the 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines, "Although the majority of Americans consume sufficient amounts of most nutrients, some nutrients are consumed by many individuals in amounts below the Estimated Average Requirement or Adequate Intake levels."
By providing the essential vitamins and minerals you need in a single tablet, a multivitamin is the foundation for a balanced nutritional supplement routine. While multivitamins are not a replacement for healthy eating, they do help full nutritional gaps and increase overall nutrient intake.
