Rainbow Light Vitamins

If you are the type of person that does not enjoy consuming fake dyes or excess sugar, especially in your multivitamin, give Rainbow Light a try.  With so many vitamin products out there to choose from, how do you decide which one is best for you? 

First, it's important to have a basic understanding of vitamins and how our body uses them.  There is always much to learn, so do some research to gain a better understanding.  Many people take vitamins for extra reassurance, or because they know they are good for them; however, if you eat a well balanced diet, you may not even need to take a multivitamin.  Certain vitamins can be harmful if taken in excess.  For example, the fat soluble vitamins KADE are are stored in the body in the liver and fatty tissues.  This can cause toxicity because the body does not get rid of the excess.  The other vitamins such as C and B are water soluble and are needed each day.  If you happen to have an excess, your body will excrete this.

Second, it's always a good idea to find a vitamin that contains high quality and potent ingredients.  Many vitamins on grocery or discount store shelves contain excess junk or are low in quality.  They may cost less, but you always get what you pay for right?  Instead, go to your local health food store or shop online to find the best vitamin products.  I will often read reviews before I buy.  It's always helpful to know what others have experienced.  I chose Rainbow Light based on the info and reviews on Vitacost.  I like that there are no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives in their products.  Another plus is the probiotics they pack into their multivitamin.

Finally, don't assume you can take a vitamin and eat however you want.  Getting vitamins from actual food is always the best way.  Make sure if you do choose to take a multivitamin, that it is from a company that cares about quality and keeping it natural.
