Vitamins and minerals perform hundreds of roles to keep you healthy, from building bones to boosting immunity to converting food into energy to stress relief. Do you know the difference between vitamins and minerals? Vitamins are organic and can therefore be broken down through cooking and exposure to air. Minerals are inorganic and can therefore be easily ingested through plants and animals you eat. And there are many of them, working in harmony to keep you humming. Keeping track can be difficult, so your Natural Choice advisor is here to help.
Your nutritional needs evolve throughout your life, so you always need to determine if you are getting enough vitamins and minerals for your life stage. If not, why not? How can you alter what you eat to get the vitamins and minerals you need from your food? Do you need supplements to help with a particular condition, like gut health, thyroid issues, low iron or to strengthen hair and nails? If you are older, calcium and B complex are important. And it’s vital growing children and pregnant women get the right vitamins and minerals.
