Taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is important for establishing a solid foundational health routine. Many nutrition experts have identified a “nutrition gap” between the nutrients consumed in the diet and what is required for optimal health – a gap that can be filled by taking a daily multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. Although ideally we would get all the nutrients we need from eating a healthy and well-balanced diet, that is easier said than done. In addition, nutrient needs vary from person to person and depend on multiple factors, including activity levels, age, gender, and the presence of chronic illness. Thorne takes all of these factors into account and offers different multi-vitamin/mineral supplements to fit individual nutrient needs.
