Aug 17, 2007
It is no secret that the standardized mass food production, especially the fast food chains, have distorted the normal vitamin intake of great numbers of people, particularly the city dwellers. It's increasingly hard to stay healthy for people relying on modern industrially-produced foods. The change of agricultural technologies has been one of the reasons, and the eating habits of our contemporaries are another. Add to this the losses sustained by the quality of foods during transportation, storage, freezing and defrosting, and the picture becomes quite unwelcoming.

Solution appeared from the same source that had begot the problem, - progress. Since we are not getting a proper vitamin intake from our food, due to various technological innovations, we can expect those same innovations to produce vitamins separately from food, in concentrated dozes.

Among the dozens of vitamins, acids and minerals, there are more essential and less important, there are those that are critical for certain ages and certain climate zones, yet they all are indispensable in one way or another.
