Vitamin Synergy

A good multivitamin combines vitamins that work together in producing healthy benefits. Just like eating a variety of healthy foods is important, taking a multivitamin containing a variety of vitamins and minerals is important. Vitamin E cannot function properly without Vitamin C. Vitamin C enhances the body's absorption of iron. This is called vitamin synergy. A high quality, effective multivitamin takes this synergy into account.

There are eight different B vitamins alone; thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, prydoxine, biotin, folic acid, cobalamin. All eight of the B's work together in various combinations to provide healthy benefits to the body, like strengthening the immune system. It can get complicated trying to find the exact mix of vitamins to provide the most benefits both to each other and to your body. Multivitamins are an excellent way to get the right mix of essential nutrients in one capsule.
