Vitamins, what do they do for me?

Vitamins are natural substances found in living things such as plants. Vitamins must be obtained in the body from foods or supplements as they can’t generally be produced by the body.

Minerals are found in plants.  Plants get their minerals from the soil… soil gets minerals from water washing over rocks.  For vitamins to do their job, they require minerals.  Minerals must also be obtained from food or supplements.

Antioxidants.. my personal favorite…. are specific vitamins or minerals that protect body cells from damaging free radicals.  Free radicals come from or are caused by smoking, sunlight, stress, exercise…. and are one of the primary causes of premature aging, sickness and disease.

Vitamins and minerals get in your body through your food such as fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, spices, or when you take a vitamin/mineral supplement.  Consumers know that supplementing is needed but usually don’t know how to choose a good supplement.

When a vitamin/ mineral is consumed  it goes to your stomach to your intestine.  They go through a complex system as the body distributes certain vitamins and minerals to parts of your body based on its own priority system.   If a nutrient is needed in a certain organ that deems more important, it will take the nutrient from the less important organ.

Vitamins/minerals will build up your immune system, increase your energy level, enhance your appearance, and expand your intelligence..  Every one will die, but how you look and feel for the last 20 – 50 years of your life will depend on your lifestyle and the vitamins and mineral intake throughout your entire life.
