A balanced diet is a must for everyone. We have been told about its importance since we were kids. We have even been chided and even cajoled by our parents, teachers, doctors and elders to have proper food which would give us the complete nutrition inclusive of all proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, water and fibre. But somehow we lose on it and our diets are not close to being balanced anyhow.

And then we have to resort to supplements to fulfil our requirements. It is also true that the food we eat might not be able to provide us all the essential vitamins, so then thanks to the vitamin supplements. Everyday we should have an intake of thirteen major vitamins. Getting that from just plain food from your everyday consumption does seem impossible truly. So you can go for vitamin supplements or multi-vitamin supplements. They would help you to convert the food you consume to energy required by your body. But make sure to consult your doctor before finalizing your source of vitamin supplement.
