We all eared about vitamins but do you really know then? What they do or what happen if you don’t take then ?
Vitamins are substances that your body needs to grow and develop normally. The term ‘vitamin’ first became popular in the early 1800s as a contraction of the words ‘vital’ and ‘mineral’, though the actual meaning of the word has developed somewhat since that time.
There are 13 vitamins your body needs. They are vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate). You can usually get all your vitamins from the foods you eat. Your body can also make vitamins D and K. People who eat a vegetarian diet may need to take a vitamin B12 supplement.
Each vitamin has specific jobs. If you have low levels of certain vitamins, you may develop a deficiency disease. For example, if you don’t get enough vitamin D, you could develop rickets. Some vitamins may help prevent medical problems. Vitamin A prevents night blindness.
The best way to get enough vitamins is to eat a balanced diet with a variety of foods. In some cases, you may need to take a daily multivitamin for optimal health. However, high doses of some vitamins can make you sick.
Another way to get the vitamins you need is to take supplements. With a busy life and the low quality food it’s always a good option. You have individual vitamins or multi vitamins supplements. From many brands in the market i’ve tried Multibionta Activate as a multivitamin and im quiet happy.
