Vitamins are essential nutrients your body needs to grow, function and develop normally. Each (there are 13) vitamin has a specific job to do; in a perfect world you can get the vitamins and minerals needed from water and the foods you eat. But let’s face it, we here in North America are miles and miles away from the Fertile Crescent. So it’s safe to say you are not getting the full nutrients intended from our meats, fruits and vegetables; even with the popular organic movement. And when we do make our attempts at healthy living by eating the right foods, we add oils and overcook them, depleting good foods of their nutritional value.
A daily multivitamin is a MUST. And depending on your current physical state, gender and family health history specific or additional supplemental vitamins may be needed.
Please be conscious of the seasonal change and start building your immune system by increasing your vitamins c, b6 and zinc intake. Proper sleep, diet and activity levels are also needed…
