Vitamins are a group of essential micronutrients, crucial to the health of every living being on the planet. Vitamins are compounds that cannot be produced by the body, or are not produced in sufficient quantities by the body alone, yet are essential for its function. Supplementation may be helpful or necessary in order to maintain a good level of health.
Vitamins are a group of compounds critical to human health and wellbeing, that we need to source from food in order to stay healthy. As the human body cannot produce all the vitamins we need to function, the best way to source these nutrients is through a well-balanced diet. While vitamin supplements cannot replace a healthy diet, which should include plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, for certain people adding a natural supplement to their diet may help with specific nutritional deficiencies.
Factors such as consuming processed food that has lost its nutritional value, being exposed to cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol use and prolonged stress can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb vital compounds from food, which may lead to nutritional deficiencies and less than optimal body function.
Vitamins include the fat-soluble group – vitamin A, D, E and K – as well as those which are water-soluble, including vitamin C and the B vitamin group. They are found in reasonable quantities in virtually all whole foods we consume, including fruit and vegetables, as well as meats, eggs, nuts and seeds, though some foods contain particularly high levels of vitamins and as such may be termed superfoods.
