Your Guide to Multivitamins

(inside tri-fold)

Take a multivitamin and your can take just about anything.

Busy doesn’t even begin to describe your schedule. Your life is a whirlwind of work, school, family, friends and fun. Only trouble is, between taking care of your homework and your housework and your car and your cat, you can sometimes forget to take care of yourself.

That’s why a daily multivitamin is so important. It’s packed with the vitamins and nutrients you need to stay healthy.

Multivitamins don’t cost very much — just a few pennies per day. They may keep your bones strong and help prevent heart disease and cancer. And if you take a daily multivitamin containing
folic acid at least one month before getting pregnant, you may reduce the risk of birth defects such as spina bifida by as much as 70 percent.

Just remember that multivitamins are a supplement to a balanced diet, not a substitute. So make sure you eat right, exercise regularly and get plenty of rest. With a schedule as jammed as yours,
you’ll need it.
