In the world today, everyone is so busy running here and there that many times a nutritious meal is a hard thing to come by. And popping a simple multi vitamin may be enough for some people, but it usually isn’t enough to support a severe deficiency or make a huge difference in someone’s health.

This helps reiterate the importance of knowing if you have a vitamin deficiency and if the foods you are eating are providing you with enough vitamins and minerals.
