The Importance of Vitamins

Jun 2, 2008
All my life I have been very interested in vitamins and the role they have in our very day life. The importance of vitamins has been known for only a short time, however, their actual effects were demonstrated long ago. Around 400 B.C., the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, first advocated using liver to cure night blindness.

The importance of vitamins and minerals can't be overstated. Every function in the body is directly or indirectly controlled and assisted by the essential vitamins and minerals. Someone who might not agree with me on the importance of vitamins should just try it for a month and see how much better they might feel. My mom has taken vitamins for years and has not been sick with the flu for seventeen years.

The world of vitamins and, even more so, minerals, goes way beyond what the majority of people are most aware of, even today. Now, with all the publicity about heart disease, Vitamin E is also well known. Proper food consumption should be accompanied by the right vitamins and minerals. Vitamins serve as buffers in the event that your diet does not meet your daily requirements fully. Arm yourself with the proper knowledge with regards to how we can greatly benefit from the various vitamins and minerals that we can find in our daily food intake. The production of serotonin and dopamine as well as the maintaining of chemical balance within the brain is a something that can be well regulated with the proper intake of the available nutrients.

You can find information about individual nutrients on specific minerals and vitamins, When having vitamin suplements is important to understand that each of these formulas contains different amounts of necessary nutrients, vitamins, and minerals specific to that person's individual need. When taking daily vitamin supplements, it's good to know which ones help which parts of the body. For example: Calcium (Ca) and vitamin D play critical roles in bone mineralisation as well as generally being key nutrients in health. All living cells require Ca to survive, with the majority (99%) of Ca being found in bones and teeth and the remainder in soft tissues and body fluids. They also amplify the breach which involves our bodies' nutritional requirements and the vitamins and minerals that are not always accessible within our meals. Recent research indicates that vitamins and minerals play a much larger role than simply providing a solid foundation for overall good health.

Ideal levels of health, can only be achieved through the help of various vitamins and minerals that we need to take in order to keep a healthy and sound mind. In fact research show that certain vitamins are very important to brain function as well as to help maintain the brain's good health. There are several vitamins and minerals that directly influence tense system functioning and health, and it is important to see to it that these are consumed at satisfactory levels. The Vitamin B complex is one of the most important of the vitamins that influence the health and performance of the nervous system, as it is members of this powerful group that are responsible for the creation of some of the most basic structures within the tense system. Along with Vitamin A and Vitamin E, Zinc is a mineral that helps people in regulating their thyroid hormones.

To resume and conclude, you need to keep in mind that intake of proper amount of vitamins and minerals is very essential. There are many minerals and vitamins that your body requires every day in order to function at peak efficiency.
