Why are Cells Important?

There are over 37 trillion cells in your body that work hard for you every single day. On average, your body loses 19 million cells each minute, and makes an equal amount to replace them.

As the root of all life, our cells provide structure, convert food into energy and hold—as well as protect—our DNA. And because our bodies are constantly exposed to environmental stressors like ultraviolet rays, which can damage our cells, it’s important that they remain in optimal condition.

To do so, cells require macro and micronutrients to replenish, repair, and regenerate themselves.

Feeding your cells with essential nutrients is a necessary and critical component to keeping your body in balance, supporting your immune system and feeling energized each day. 

What are Micronutrients?

Like Macronutrients, which include protein, fat and carbohydrates, micronutrients are also essential and include vitamins and minerals that are vital for cell health and growth. Because the body doesn't make vitamins and minerals to meet our cells’ constant needs, we must obtain them from food and supplements.

Even if we aspire to eat only the healthiest and freshest foods, Centrum® is a surefire way to get the micronutrients our cells need and to make each day count.

Here are just a few kinds of micronutrients that contribute to optimal cellular health and overall wellness:

  • ANTIOXIDANTS — (including vitamins C and E) — help defend cells against damage from free radicals in our bodies.*
  • B COMPLEX VITAMINS (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12)—involved in every aspect of the metabolic process for generating energy within your cells.*
  • IRON —supports cells that contribute to proper immune function.*
