Consider it your insurance policy for getting all the nutrients your needs to run optimally. When your meals fall short of the nutritional gold standard, make sure you take your daily multivitamin.

Make sure your multi contains iodine, a mineral that is sometimes omitted by certain manufacturers and is important for your heart, thyroid, brain and other vital organs.\r\n
