Vitamins Are Vital and Minerals Are a Must
In a perfect world we would all eat a perfectly balanced diet that would provide our bodies with all the vitamins and minerals we need for perfect health. Unfortunately, the world isn’t perfect and neither are we. A survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that only about half of all Americans eat a piece of fruit a day. The typical American woman doesn’t even eat the minimum RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for vitamins E or B-6, or the critical minerals calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.
Vitamins and minerals are essential to every process that goes on in our bodies, even though as micro-nutrients we need them in relatively small amounts compared to the macro-nutrients carbohydrates, proteins, fats and water. Although a daily multiple vitamin and mineral supplement isn’t meant to replace a healthful, balanced diet, it can be a good insurance policy for those times when we don’t eat as well as we should.
Remember, for optimal health: exercise regularly, reduce stress, eat healthy meals and try a MULTIPLE CHOICE from Nature’s Life.
Vitamins and Their Benefits
Vitamin A and the carotenoids enhance immunity, act as antioxidants and are necessary for new cell growth.* Vitamin A and it is vital for healthy skin and eyes.* Carotenoids (such as beta carotene) are converted to vitamin A, but their primary benefit is their powerful antioxidant protection.*
The B vitamins feed and regulate the brain and nervous system.* Thiamine (B1) promotes normal nervous system function, growth and digestion.* Riboflavin (B2) is essential for growth and eye health.* Niacin (B3) plays an important role in energy production.* Pantothenic acid (B5) enhances nutrient metabolism.* Pyridoxine (B6) enhances immunity, and regulates brain activity and growth.* Cyanocobalamin (B12) helps form red blood cells and is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system.* Folic acid helps form DNA, RNA and red and white blood cells.* Biotin aids fat and protein metabolism.* Choline aids the brain and central nervous system. It also helps regulate gallbladder and liver function.* Inositol is a primary component of cell membranes.*
Vitamin C is an antioxidant required for tissue growth and repair. It also protects against the harmful effects of oxidative damage, and enhances immune function.* Vitamin D is required for the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus and is necessary for normal growth, development and maintenance of bones and teeth.*
Vitamin E is the multi-purpose antioxidant vitamin necessary to protect the body from free radicals. It helps maintain healthy nerves and muscles, and promotes healthy skin and hair.*
Vitamin K is necessary for blood clotting as well as bone formation and repair.*
Essential Minerals and Their Benefits
Calcium is vital for strong bones and teeth. It helps maintain a regular heartbeat and is needed for muscular growth.* Boron helps in mineral metabolism and works with calcium, manganese and vitamin D to prevent calcium loss.* Copper aids in the formation of bone, hemoglobin and red blood cells. It is involved in the healing process, energy production and is needed for healthy nerves and joints.* Chromium is needed for normal metabolism of blood sugar.* Iodine is needed in trace amounts for entire-body metabolism and normal thyroid function.* Iron is an essential part of the hemoglobin in red blood cells, which carry oxygen through-out the body.* Magnesium promotes healthy bone formation, muscle contraction and energy.*
Manganese is involved in forming connective tissue, developing normal bone structure and digesting/utilizing food.* Molybdenum aids in carbohydrate and fat metabolism and is part of the enzyme responsible for iron utilization.* Phosphorous aids in growth and body repair, and helps to metabolize fat and starches.* Potassium is important for a healthy nervous system and a regular heart rhythm.* Selenium activates the vital enzyme, glutathione peroxidase, that is needed to protect the body from oxidative damage.* Zinc assists in muscle development and wound healing. It is also needed for proper taste and hearing.*
