Our bodies have thousands of chemical processes and reactions going on in each cell, every second of the day. Our cells require vitamins and minerals to continually process the proteins, fats and carbohydrates from the foods we eat.
Vitamins and minerals are essential parts of these chemical reactions. Without them, essential body functions couldn't take place which can lead to deficiencies, health problems and in severe cases illness and disease.
Usually, we can get all the vitamins and minerals we need from a healthy diet. But we all know at times our busy lifestyles, schedules and work commitments can interfere with maintaining a healthy diet. Taking vitamin supplements can be a simple way to ensure we aren't missing out on the essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies need every day.
