Vitamins are vital substances that are constantly needed in small quantities. Essential elements present in nature are referred to as minerals (e.g. calcium). Trace elements are essential nutrients that the body needs particularly small quantities of (e.g. zinc).
The human body is unable to produce all necessary vitamins, minerals and trace elements by itself, which is why we must ensure sufficient intake through a balanced diet supplemented by these products when necessary.
Vitamins play a key role in our overall wellbeing, as well as in mental and physical function. Minerals and trace elements affect the structure, metabolism and function of our bones, muscles, nervous system and organs.
Vitamins and minerals are essential for maintaining health and wellbeing.
