WHY ARE VITAMINS & MINERALS IMPORTANT ?
Vitamins and minerals are compounds necessary for our bodies to function, and lack of any of these essential nutrients can lead to serious health problems, which may result in disabling or even fatal diseases. Although eating a well-balanced diet can provide most of the necessary requirements, the public's increased reliance on fast food, plus the abundance of processed foods, contribute to poor general eating habits and increase the amount of vitamins and minerals necessary for optimum health. People rarely eat enough fruits and vegetables, as well as other required nutrients, to provide a healthy balance. This is especially common with the elderly population. Those with illness, injury and stress, as well as those on restricted diets, may not be getting sufficient nutrients from their foods alone, and they may have increased vitamin and mineral needs. Supplementation can provide the additional nutrients required for a healthy nutritional program.
