Why does a woman need multi-vitamins?

Multi-vitamins are a combinations vitamins and minerals which are required for our body to function to optimum capacity. A large portion of these vitamins and minerals naturally come from fruits and vegetables. You would think that this would mean that we get the required nutrients naturally and do no need any supplements but still multi-vitamin supplements are so popular. Why is that? Most of us don’t consume the amount of fruits and vegetables required for our daily vitamin needs. In fact, studies have found that 76% of adults don’t eat enough fruit and 87% of adults don’t eat enough veggies. The suggested quantity to suffice the nutrient needs are 1.5-2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables daily. In view of this multi-vitamin supplements have become highly popular as they are an easy and efficient solution.
