Vitamins are present in low levels in our bodies, but essential to every aspect of our health, vitamins are substances our bodies cannot make. Therefore, they must be obtained through diet.
Vitamins perform key functions:
- Vitamin C builds immunity and connective tissue.
- Vitamin A enhances immunity and helps growth.
- B-vitamins are essential for energy.
- Vitamin D strengthens bones.
We would die without vitamins and fall seriously ill when we don’t get the right amount.
While a balanced diet should provide our complete vitamin quota, nutritionists argue that modern life often leaves us depleted.
