Should You Be Taking Liquid Vitamins?Written by Hamoon Arbabi
How many pills do you have to take every morning? Lots of multivitamins in there? For most people answer is yes, considering there are more multivitamins sold than Prozac or Viagra! I think my mom used to take at least five or six vitamins. I don’t know about you, but I think that sounds like a big hassle, and I don’t have time for it. The thing is, vitamins and minerals are necessary. You can get most of your nutrients from eating a balanced diet which includes lots of fruits and vegetables, but you can’t get everything. That’s where vitamins come in. You may be wondering, “Why do I actually need vitamins and minerals?” Let me tell you about United States Senate Document #264 from way back in 1936. The main point of document is that soil in developed countries, especially North America, has been nearly depleted of all important minerals. And this was in 1936! Thank about how bad it is now. We should be getting minerals from foods we eat, but we aren’t. (Don’t worry, end of article has a solution.) To quote directly from document, “The alarming fact is that foods, fruits and vegetables and grains, now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us - no matter how much of them we eat!” One mineral you’re probably familiar with is calcium. We need that for our bones. And since cycling is not a weight bearing sport, we need extra calcium. Calcium does more than build strong bones, however. Read this interesting selection from document for more detail: “A cage full of normal rats will live in amity. Restrict their calcium and they will become irritable and draw apart from one another. Then they will begin to fight. Restore their calcium balance and they will grow more friendly; in time they will begin to sleep in a pile as before.”
