Our bodies require a range of different nutrients to function properly. We require sustenance in the form of food and water. Otherwise, our energy levels drop and we can find it difficult to perform basic tasks or even move our muscles. Vitamins are a vital part of that required sustenance. They come in many different forms and can be found in many different foods. If you want to live a balanced and healthy life and feel full of vitality and energy, you should strive to treat your body with a regular dose of vitamins either naturally, or using supplements.
Our food is primarily made up of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which are also called macronutrients. Vitamins, minerals, and other substances needed in very small amounts are called micronutrients. They can also be found in the food we eat and we have to ingest specific amounts of them on a daily basis because our bodies can’t synthesize them (apart from vitamin D). Without them, the body has difficulty performing some very important functions.
