International Youth Day: Multivitamins Are An Absolute Must For Today's Youth
The present and future of our society rests on the shoulders of our youth. According to statistical data, healthy and happy adolescents as well as young adults are more prepared and better equipped to actively take charge of their communities like able citizens, irrespective of the massive shifts taking place in the world they are to inherit. Poor hygienic contributions, continuous behavioural risks, socio-economic disparities, new and emerging diseases, poor nutrition, and bad habits are all contributors to a changing landscape of health and wellbeing among the youth. With all of these factors constantly impacting the health of the youth today, it is perhaps even more imperative for them to include multivitamins and dietary supplements into their regular routine. As a way of celebrating International Youth Day on August 12, let’s make a pledge to educate, engage, and encourage the youth to find innovative ways to take care of their overall health and wellbeing. And what better way to do so than by making Wellbeing Nutrition multivitamins and dietary supplements a part of their daily life.
Wellbeing Nutrition provides organic, non-genetically modified vitamins and minerals that are not chemically synthesised. They combine the best of advanced science and technology along with natural traceable ingredients to bring the best of nutrition for their patrons. In this blog, let’s take a look at some of the multivitamins and dietary supplements that today’s youth can add to their daily routine. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started. But before that, let’s take a look at why Multivitamins are an absolute must for today’s youth in great detail.
Why Are Multivitamins An Absolute Must For Today’s Youth?
The youth are leading fast-paced, hectic lives that entails eating on-the-go, sleeping less, and stressing all the time, which can often make it challenging to keep up with one’s daily dose of nutrition and self care routine. When one consumes a nutrient-deficient diet for a long period of time, they are at a higher risk of falling prey to numerous deficiencies. These deficiencies may be easy to ignore, but they can be quite difficult to deal with, especially when they surface one after another.
The body is informed of these deficiencies through various kinds of signals from time to time such as low energy, sleepless nights, hair fall, skin break-outs, mood swings, and a weakened immune system, to name a few. These symptoms are hard to ignore. However, if they are left ignored for too long, they could become severe with time, leading to complete breakdown of the body and nervous system, causing chronic diseases and infections. That is why including multivitamins into one’s routine becomes an absolute necessity.
On the back of these deficiencies, when one’s food fails to meet their nutritional needs, it only becomes natural and perhaps more important to turn to dietary supplements like tinctures, gummies, effervescent tablets, powder, pills, syrups, oral thin strips, and delayed-release tablets among other things. Let’s take a look at some of these multivitamins and dietary supplements below.
Wellbeing Nutrition Products or Multivitamins That Must Be Included In One’s Daily Routine
Here are a few Wellbeing Nutrition multivitamins or products that one must include in their daily routine to take better care of their overall wellbeing.
Multivitamin For Her
Multivitamin or Multi for Her is a scientifically-developed delayed-release multivitamin for women belonging to the age group of 18 and 49 to help plug in the nutrient gaps in one’s diet. These multivitamin capsules for women combine the most powerful nutriscience with fast absorbing vegan omega oil and slow release plant based multivitamin beadlets with astaxanthin and cranberry.
It has been formulated keeping in mind the growing needs of young women and aids in making them feel more energetic, healthy, and beautiful. It contains a mix of all vital vitamins for women that aims to bridge the nutritional gap by 100% RDA of all natural and essential micronutrients including vitamin D and iron. These delayed-release capsules use fast absorbing vegan DHA from Algal oil and slow-release plant-based beadlets that are designed to dissolve slowly over 8 hours, ensuring optimum bioavailability of the nutrients in the more absorbable areas of the gut.
Multivitamin For Him
Multivitamin for Him or Multi For Him are scientifically-developed delayed-release multivitamins for men belonging to the age group of 18 and 49 to help meet their growing nutritional requirements and plug in the deficiencies. These capsules for men combine the most powerful nutriscience with fast absorbing MCT oil obtained from coconut and slow-release plant based multivitamin beadlets with caffeine, and ginseng. They help strengthen immunity, boost energy levels and stamina, improve gut health, cognitive and cardiovascular health, and enhance muscle strength and mass, among other things.
Essential Vitamins - B12 and D3 Melts
The most common deficiencies prevalent among both young men and women these days are vitamin D3 and B12 deficiencies. These are two very important nutrients for one’s overall health and wellbeing. They are necessary to build and maintain strong bones, develop and maintain enhanced cognitive and neural function, uplift mood, boost energy levels and metabolism, and strengthen immunity by countering nutritional deficiencies.
These vital nutrients are available in the form of oral thin strips that easily melt in the mouth and go by the names of Melts Natural Vitamin D3 and Melts Vegan Vitamin B12. These melts strips are all made of natural plant-based ingredients and provide 100% Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA). These strips have been designed in such a way that whenever they come in contact with the surface of your tongue, the strip dissolves. You don’t need to consume water after placing the strips on the tip of your tongue, the way you do while having pills. They are also incredibly fast-acting and are super-effective, courtesy the Unison Effect Formula that makes these strips 95% more bioavailable than traditional capsules, pills, or gummies.
Virgin Omega Slow Capsules
Omega 3 is significant for every age group, right from birth till old age. Adequate consumption of omega 3 reduces inflammation and oxidative stress in the body, eventually also lowering the risk of heart diseases, arthritis, osteoporosis, and even cancer. It also helps improve vision & cognitive function, slow down macular degeneration, and strengthen immunity among other things. Wellbeing Nutrition’s Virgin Omega Slow Capsules are a scientifically-developed supplement with triple strength of fish oil to support brain and heart health. These delayed-release capsules combine the most powerful nutriscience with triple strength fish oil as a fast absorbing base and slow-release curcumin beadlets. The supplement also offers the highest concentration of essential fatty acids, which means that 1240mg of this supplement offers you around 868 mg of essential fatty acids (DHA-372mg, EPA-496mg). Moreover, this supplement is molecularly distilled for added purity, which means they are devoid of heavy metals or impurities. These capsules extract omega-3s from pristine deep-sea salmon, making them the highest quality of omega-3 in the market. They come in the form of enteric-coated capsules that prevent burps and an unpalatable aftertaste.
Superfood Plant Protein
Protein is one of the most essential macronutrients that must feature in one’s regular diet.It acts as building blocks of the body. Many people consider protein as one of the most vital bodybuilding supplements but it's a lot more than just that. It consists of structural combinations called amino acids that bind together in many ways to make bones, muscles, skin, tendons, hair and other tissues. They also help with enzyme production and nutrient transportation as well. They also help in muscle recovery and strength building, especially if the person in question is an athlete or a sportsperson. Needless to say, it is a must-have in the diets of young adults. While one can easily include protein in their diet, it is always best to include a supplement to their daily routine to avoid any nutritional deficiencies.
Wellbeing Nutrition’s Superfood Plant Protein is a perfect protein solution for vegans and those inclined towards a more plant-based diet. This vegan protein blend is derived from rich ingredients sourced from all over the globe. Derived from golden European peas(pea protein isolate), brown rice & chia seeds, this protein comes with a blend of microprotein plant peptides and dietary fiber, which makes it the best plant-based supplement for you. It also helps with better absorption and aids in boosting your metabolism. It also contains all essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids, which are necessary to preserve and build lean muscle tissue. Additionally, it is a natural blend, which is free from artificial sugar and colourants. It is available in two flavours-Vanilla Caramel Protein and Dark Chocolate Hazelnut.
These are easily dissolvable multivitamin oral thin strips that contain 100% RDA of potent blend of nutrients like Vitamins A, B-Complex, C, D3 & K2, which help in improving immunity, supporting cardiovascular health, improving cognitive functions, boosting energy levels, reducing stress and anxiety, and improving one’s memory.
Wellbeing Nutrition has three variants of collagen - Pure Korean Marine Collagen Peptides, Glow Japanese Marine Collagen Peptides and Beauty Japanese Marine Collagen Peptides.Collagen is one of the most important structural proteins in the body that helps make your skin younger and elastic and connective tissues and joints stronger. The tricky part about it is that this essential protein in the body begins to decline during one’s early 20’s by 1% -1.5% due to ageing, which deeply impacts one’s skin, hair, nails, bones and joint health, and muscle strength. While one can replenish collagen levels through collagen-rich foods, it’s advisable to consume collagen supplements as the collagen in food cannot be used directly by our tissues. Collagen supplements go through an enzymatic process of hydrolysis, which breaks them into shorter amino acid chains, making them more absorbable and efficacious. While Pure Korean Marine Collagen Peptides is the unflavoured variant that can be mixed to right about anything and impact your overall health, Glow Japanese Marine Collagen in Tropical Bliss Flavour and works entirely on skin health and radiance. Beauty Japanese Marine Collagen Peptides, on the other hand, comes in Mango Peach flavour and works on one’s skin, hair and nail health.
