Vitamin Supplements ...
organic nutrients that are essential to the body and our long term health.
A good diet is the basis of health and vitamins and minerals are essential for
Minerals must be supplied by our diet as we cannot
synthesise these ourselves and are extremely important for the majority of metabolic
processes and for the building of the body structure.
Vitamins on the other hand generally act as catalysts,
helping the body to perform a multitude of functions, but vitamins are also organic
compounds that are essential to life.
For the most part, vitamins are not produced by the body
and must be ingested as part of our diet (the exception to this is Vitamin D, which can be
made by the body from sunlight). And, most of
the vitamins in our diet come from plants.
A healthy person is able to synthesise small amounts of
vitamin B12, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B3, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, inositol, folic acid and
biotin. The fat soluble vitamins (Vitamin E,
Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Vitamin K) require the presence of fats in the digestive system
in order to be absorbed, used and stored. Vitamin
C and the B complex vitamins plus bioflavanoids are all water soluble and are dissolved
and utilised with the presence of water in the digestive tract.
The fat soluble vitamins are carried in the blood by
lipo-proteins and can be stored in the liver or fatty tissues.
However, because of the way foods are now produced,
handled, stored and even processed, our diets will not always contain the amount of
vitamins, minerals and enzymes that nature intended for us to. If you were to add things such as stress, the use
of drugs, prescription medicines and the environmental pollution to the equation, these
deplete nutrients even further.
Careful preparation of our food we eat is vitally
important. Even though much food is often
lacking the quantity of nutrients we require, the last thing we need to do, is overcook
anything or cook things the wrong way, as we will destroy what vitamins, minerals and
enzymes that they may contain.
Vegetables are best eaten raw. If not, then the use of a pressure cooker, or
steaming them, are the next best things. However,
cooking water should also be saved to make a broth or soups, as many nutrients are lost
into the cooking water.
Also the key to trying to preserve all these
vitamins and other nutrients is to only cut something if you have to, and as little as
possible - this will reduce the amount of bleed (in other words the amount of vitamin,
mineral and enzyme content lost).
But, with todays lifestyle, it is often advisable to seek a good quality
multi vitamin and mineral supplement - or at least something that can give you the
nutrients you may well be lacking.
Like iron, which is an important dietary mineral that many people may be lacking,
and.if your doctor determines that you are iron deficient, a great way to support the
bodies natural levels is iron supplements
an easy way to get your natural levels back on track.
