Vitamins & Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.

Vitamins and minerals differ in basic ways. Vitamins are organic and can be broken down by heat, air, or acid. Minerals are inorganic and hold on to their chemical structure. Meaning the minerals in soil and water easily find their way into your body through the plants, fish, animals, and fluids you consume. But it’s tougher to shuttle vitamins from food and other sources into your body because cooking, storage, and simple exposure to air can inactivate these more fragile compounds.

Eating a healthy diet remains the best way to get vitamins and minerals you need, but may not always be enough.

A huge role in self care is to supplement your body’s intake of vitamins and minerals. There is a fine line between getting enough of these nutrients (which is healthy) and getting too much (which can end up harming you).
