Which Organic Liquid Multivitamin For Adults Is Best?
Multivitamins have become an integral part of many people’s daily routines, throughout all stages of life. In fact, no matter what age you are or what type of diet you eat, you may still be able to benefit from taking a multivitamin. The reason for this is based on the overall purpose of multivitamins, which is filling in any nutritional gaps that form in your diet. Whether due to hectic schedules or the recent decline in food quality, even the most well-balanced meal plans can sometimes leave your body wanting more. In this case, multivitamins can be a great backup plan that gives you peace of mind knowing your body always has a ready supply of the nutrients it needs every day.
But what type of multivitamin is best? When it comes to a liquid multivitamin for adults, we would recommend one that is also organic. Organic supplements utilize only organic ingredients, meaning they have been harvested naturally in accordance with the standards of organic farming. These standards include regulations forbidding pesticides and insecticides as well as the use of GMOS (1). Organic ingredients tend to be of higher quality and do not have the same harmful effects on your body that some synthetic ingredients may cause. In this article, we will explore what you should look out for when you are in the market for an organic multivitamin.
So, you want your supplement to have organic ingredients. But what exactly does it mean to have organic ingredients? A supplement that contains at least 95% organic ingredients will qualify for the USDA organic seal, while those that say they are “made with organic ingredients” have only 70% or more organic ingredients. You should always keep an eye on the label when purchasing any kind of supplement to make sure the ingredients are natural and present in healthy quantities.
When the nutrients in your supplement derive from an all-natural food source as opposed to a synthetic one, they tend to have more bioavailability, meaning that more of the nutrient can actually be absorbed and utilized by your body. Nutrients that come from whole foods as opposed to synthetic sources are typically accompanied by other necessary vitamins, minerals, or antioxidants that help your body absorb them more efficiently. Vitamin E, for example, has been found to absorb twice as effectively in its natural form as opposed to its synthetic form (2). Some synthetic nutrients may be necessary to target specific health issues, but if you are looking to generally fill your body’s nutritional gaps, then natural ingredients may be a healthier choice.
Many brands, particularly solid supplements, use fillers in their supplements for a variety of reasons. In some instances it may be to make products look bigger, more vibrant, or more appealing. With the case of pills and capsules, fillers like silicon dioxide are sometimes needed to bind the nutrients in place and keep them from clumping together before they are released and absorbed by the body (3). Not all fillers are harmful, but in general, it may be safer to use a supplement that contains only clean, natural ingredients devoid of fillers in order to avoid unnecessary health risks.
Organic liquid multivitamins are particularly effective when it comes to cutting out unnecessary fillers. Liquid multivitamins often have no need for binding agents, as their nutrients are already present in their liquid forms and ready to be absorbed by your body the moment you consume your dosage.
