Vitamins & Supplements

Each day our body requires small amounts of vitamins and minerals to function.  A varied diet will generally provide most of these requirements, however in some cases supplementation may be required to correct deficiencies of particular vitamins and minerals.

Vitamins fall into two categories: fat soluble and water soluble.  The fat soluble vitamins- A, D, E and K, dissolve in fat and can be stored in the body.  The water soluble vitamins- C, and B complex vitamins (B6, B12, B3, B2 and folate) need to dissolve in water before your body can absorb them.  These can’t be stored in the body and need to be replaced regularly through diet or via supplementation.  Water soluble vitamins are often required in higher doses in times of stress or increased physical activity.

Minerals and trace elements are chemicals that we need in small amounts for the body function optimally.  For example calcium is required for strong bones and teeth, sodium for fluid balance and nerve function, iron for transporting oxygen in the blood and energy metabolism, and iodine for thyroid function. 

The  health benefits of  vitamins and minerals include their ability to prevent and treat various conditions including heart problems, high cholesterol, gastro-intestinal disorders, eye disorders and skin disorders, just to name a few.  They may also help to boost the immune system and support normal growth and development, helping cells and organs to do their job. 

Vitamin and mineral supplements may also be particularly useful for the elderly, those following a specific diet, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, vegetarians or vegans.  If you are feeling a bit tired, run down, lacking sleep, need a boost, have issues with digestion or any other symptoms, there is likely to be a vitamin supplement to suit your needs at The Vitamin Shop.

Vitamin Shop Online stocks a fantastic range of vitamin supplements to help fill those nutritional gaps!
