Supporting our immune systems and staying healthy should always be our top priority. Maintaining strong immunity will remain important this year and every year. To be ready for this cold and flu season (or the next, depending on when you are reading this) you should take every step you can to defend yourself from sick days and stay healthy right now.


Eating the healthiest diet possible—whole fruits and vegetables, low sodium, minimal-to-no refined sugar, avoiding artificial ingredients—and drinking sufficient amounts of pure, clean water is where you start on your “staying healthy” journey. Then, to ensure that you’re getting the optimal amounts of nutrients—bridging the gap between what your diet is supplying and what you REALLY need—a high-quality multivitamin/mineral supplement is the logical next step.

Now, even though the “clean diet + sufficient water + multivitamin/mineral” combination is the ideal way to make sure you’re covering your nutritional bases, many people don’t take a multivitamin/mineral supplement for two main reasons:

Reason n.1 - They believe that they’re already eating a healthy diet.

Studies show that food alone does not supply all the micronutrients we need to prevent deficiency, let alone achieve optimal health. Nutritional scientist, Bruce Ames, bluntly states, “Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay.” Another study concluded: “Nearly the entire U.S. population consumes a diet that is not on par with recommendations.” [1]

Bottom line is that your diet isn’t covering all of your true nutrient needs.

Reason n.2 - They consider a multivitamin boost to be boring and won’t do anything to boost athletic performance.

The second reason doesn’t really cut it because though taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement may not, in and of itself, allow you to “take 10 minutes off my marathon time” (as an example), it does fill in nutrients in the gaps that exist in your diet. And that’s crucial to improved athletic performance.

Would you place the foundation of your house on sand, liable to be washed away by the elements?

Providing your body with adequate supplies of vitamins and minerals is similar to pouring a strong foundation when building a house. Without a strong foundation, the house will lack structural integrity. Similarly, without adequate vitamins and minerals, many of your important bodily systems (especially your immune system) will not have the support needed to function properly.

At the very least, this means you won't get the full value from all of the hard work you put into your training. It could also very well result in a compromised immune system, which is definitely something to avoid, as that could translate into missed training days due to being sick.
