Why Vitamins and Supplements?

While there’s no one size fits all approach to living a healthy lifestyle, we know that focusing on our nutrition and eating a balanced diet help you stay energised and nourished. Vitamins and supplements can be of assistance to bring you one step closer to your health and wellness goals if dietary intake is inadequate.1


The Top Reasons to Take Vitamins


Keep our bodies in Good Order

Vitamins work hard to keep our bodies functioning properly and they help drive essential processes needed in our everyday lives. Each nutrient is on a mission to deliver health benefits that help you reach your goals.


Healthy Ageing

Our cells experience wear and tear as time passes. Vitamins, like antioxidants, function to help protect cells from environmental stressors2


Cover Your Nutritional Bases

We do our best to eat healthy, but its not always easy to eat a balanced diet. A multivitamin can help work towards your regular daily requirements for essential vitamins and minerals, if dietary intake is inadequate.


What can Vitamins do for your health?


Support Immunity

Good nutrition contributes to a healthy immune system.

Vitamin C is considered one of the biggest immune supporters. Zinc is also important for immune cell development and communication and may promote immune health.3


Support a Healthy Metabolism

B-complex vitamins, like thiamineriboflavinfolatebiotin, and vitamins B6 and B12 collaborate with other enzymes in your body to metabolise energy from protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Staying physically active and eating a healthy diet also help to maintain a healthy metabolism—factors that are important for healthy ageing and your overall health.5


Maintain Strong Bones

You probably already know that calcium is important for healthy bones. But did you know that calcium needs vitamin D to successfully fulfill its job of helping to build healthy bones?

The skin produces vitamin D following direct exposure to sunlight, but the necessary use of sunscreen, weak Winter sunlight, and poor skin absorption can work against production of this vital nutrient. 6


Centrum Advance contains essential vitamins to help fill nutritional gaps if dietary intake is inadequate, supporting multiple health benefits. They are designed for both men and women in the family and are suitable for sharing.
