Why Should I Take a Multi-Vitamin?

Why should I take a multi-vitamin?Did you know that published in the 2002 JAMA was the recommendation that every adult should be taking a multi vitamin! Why? Because it is now known that only 20-30% of the US population meets basic dietary recommendations.

If that is not enough bad news, the government knew as early as 1936 in Farm Land Mineral Depletion US Senate Document #264, the 74th congress second session stated that our farm soils are depleted of important life sustaining minerals. In 1993, The World Health Organization said in a report that our soil is now totally barren, 95% depleted of the basic survival nutrients we need.

The following are verbatim, unabridged extracts from the 74th Congress 2nd Session:

“Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.”


“It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack or one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, and shorten our lives.”


“We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for normal function of some special structure in the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body’s appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.”


“Certainly our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories of vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein of carbohydrates we consume.” “This discovery is one of the latest and most important contributions of science to the problem of human health.”

So Why Do I Need Minerals?

Minerals are responsible for:

  • Normal Growth
  • Sexual Development
    • Strong Immunity
    • Blood and Bone Formation
    • Nerve Function
    • Body Fluid Composition

Vitamins can only be used if minerals are present because every vitamin has a cofactor in a mineral.
