Multivitamins are a combination of vitamins and minerals and are available in the form of tablets, capsules, liquids and injections. Liquid multivitamins are used to treat vitamin and mineral shortage in the body that may occur because of frequent illnesses, pregnancy, poor nutrition, decreased absorption of foods through the stomach, and many other circumstances.
Multivitamins are one of the most important single supplements that can be consumed not just by bodybuilders and athletes but also by people who suffer from deficiencies of various vitamins.
For the human body to perform at its maximum potential, it must be fed with a vast and complex array of vital nutrients and vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin B, Vitamin K among other important vitamins. Becoming deficient in just one of the essential vitamins breaks down the metabolic pathway, that produces optimum efficiency as a result performance declines. Thus daily consumption of a high-potency multivitamin helps in ensuring the presence of essential cofactors necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions which otherwise due to deficiencies can cause impairments to many of the enzymatic processes that take place in the human body.
Vitamins are naturally occurring substances that are found in the normal diet of people but due to the popularity of fast food that contains harmful fats, the diet loses its nutrient value. To make up for these deficiencies multivitamin supplements are important. However overdosage or large doses of these multivitamins can also be dangerous. Multivitamins thus should be taken only if prescribed by a doctor.
Liquid multivitamins are generally considered to be safe for use during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Special pre-natal vitamins are available for babies and are important for their healthy development. One should be careful and use supplements only under supervision as large doses of some vitamins can prove extremely harmful for the body.
Liquid multivitamins should always be consumed with a full glass of water and under normal circumstances should never be consumed on an empty stomach.
