Vitamins – essential for healthy living

The cells of your body need vitamins – a group of essential organic compounds - to grow and work normally.

They also need vitamins to unlock the energy in your food and make it available to the body.

We get most of our vitamins from food, because we can’t produce them all. And, even the ones we can produce, we often can’t produce enough of.

Unfortunately, however, our modern diet often doesn’t give us all the vitamins we need.

The health of our consumers is our top priority. Multivitamins and minerals are recommended as a supplement for our nutritional support. They are not recommended as a substitute for proper sleep habits, diet or nutrition.

There are 13 vitamins.

Some of these, like vitamin A, E, D and K, are fat-soluble.

Others, like vitamin C and the B vitamins, are water-soluble.

We tend to store the fat-soluble vitamins for a longer time than water-soluble ones.

That’s why it’s important to have a reliable daily intake of vitamin C and the B-vitamins.
