What are vitamins?
Vitamins – what are they and are they really that necessary? This is an important question that is hard to define.
Vitamins are compounds often found in nature or made within an organism. Some are essential which refers to their importance within the body.
Deficiencies of vitamins can be devastating.
Most vitamins are gained through our diet.
Vegetables, fruits, meat and fish are often great sources for vitamins.
Supplements can help replenish our source of vitamins but often shouldn’t be more important than our dietary source.
A good oral vitamin can not, however, be overstated for those such as children, elderly, sick, or otherwise in need.
Often our diet includes foods that does not benefit us with vitamins or minerals.
When eaten in moderation, usually there is no health concerns.
Vitamins are essential and more often than not we are not getting enough in our daily diet.
Are you getting enough??
