5 Foods That Contain More Of Some Nutrients Than Multivitamins That You Should Eat More

Food plays an important role in the functioning of the human body and this partly explains the popular saying that “you are what you eat”. This is because food helps to supply the body with needed nutrients in the form of minerals and vitamins, which all work together to allow the body to perform optimally. However, sometimes getting all the required nutrients from food may prove difficult, prompting many people to often opt for supplements and multivitamins.

However, getting your nutrients from whole food is better than getting them from supplements and coupled with the fact that some foods contain more nutrients that will benefit your body than others, it is best to consume more of such foods instead of investing your money on multivitamins and supplements. With that in mind, below are some foods that contain higher amounts of some nutrients than multivitamins:
