What are the benefits of taking a multivitamin?
In theory, we should be able to meet our nutritional requirements by eating a varied and balanced diet. However, in reality this is not always practical or even possible. Many people lead extremely hectic lifestyles and simply don’t have the time to shop for fresh ingredients and prepare nutritious meals every day. Others don’t like the taste of certain nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables, so miss them from their diet.For some people, there may be a medical reason why they may be at a greater risk of a nutritional deficiency, such as taking particular medications.And even with a perfect diet, it can still be difficult to achieve the recommend daily allowances, as vitamins can become depleted during storage and cooking. Multivitamins are an excellent way of ensuring that we meet the recommended levels of nutrients for good health and that we are safeguarded against any nutritional deficiencies.
Which is better, krill oil or fish oil?
This is a question which still divides researchers. Krill oil naturally contains lower levels of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA than fish oil, however research seems to suggest that the bioavailability (the body’s ability to absorb and use it effectively) of krill oil is greater. Omega-3 from fish oil on the other hand, has a longer history of research, with more evidence on its long term effects. In the end, it is difficult to say which is better, it comes down to personal preference or which one you are more comfortable taking. HealthAid Krill-LifeTM capsules are free from impurities, GMOs, BSE/TSE, PCBs and are sustainably sourced and Eco-Harvested (Eco-Harvesting™).
