Why Take Vitamin Supplements?
Vitamins and minerals boost the immune system, support normal growth and development and help cells and organs do their jobs. It has been proven that vitamins and minerals are crucial for good health and optimal body function. However, excess amounts have not been proven to improve performance and therefore more is not necessarily better.
Where to Get Vitamins and Minerals?
Fat-soluble vitamins are found mainly in fatty foods and animal products, such as vegetable oils, milk and dairy foods, eggs, liver, oily fish and butter. Your body needs these vitamins every day to work properly, however, you don't need to eat foods containing them every day. This is because your body stores these vitamins in your liver and fatty tissues for future use. These stores can build up so they are there when you need them. But if you have much more than you need, fat-soluble vitamins can do more harm than good.
Fat-soluble vitamins are: vitamin’s (A) (D) (E) (K)
Water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body, so you need to have them more frequently.
If you have more than you need, your body gets rid of the extra vitamins when you urinate. As the body does not store water-soluble vitamins, these vitamins are generally not harmful. However, this doesn't mean that all large amounts are necessarily harmless.
Water-soluble vitamins are found in a wide range of foods, including fruit, vegetables, potatoes, grains, milk and dairy foods.
Minerals are necessary for three main reasons:
- Building strong bones and teeth
- Controlling body fluids
- Turning the food you eat into energy
Minerals are found in foods such as meat, cereals (including cereal products such as bread), fish, milk and dairy foods, vegetables, fruit (especially dried fruit) and nuts. But it’s not always easy to get the vitamins and minerals you need every day, which is why supplements are important for all-round health and wellbeing.
