Why Take Supplements?

13 Essential Nutrients our body needs

The 13 essential vitamins your body needs are vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyroxidine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and cobalamin (B12).The four fat-soluble vitamins—A, D, E, and K—are stored in the body’s fatty tissues. The other nine vitamins are water-soluble and therefore must be replenished regularly because they are removed from the body in your urine. Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that is stored in the liver.

Unique Elements

Some nutrients are only available is certain foods which may or may not regularly feature in our diet. Certain nutrients are scarce or they may only be available in reduced quantities, especially in vegetables grown in the nutrients depleted soil.

“I try hard to eat well, but I also think that it’s important for me to complement my diet with selected supplements. I have a pretty good idea of what I get in sufficient quantities and what I miss in my diet. For example, selenium is a scarce mineral, available in trace quantities in a limited number of food products. Brazil nuts are the best source of selenium. But, how often do I buy and eat Brazil nuts? That’s why I take selenium as a supplement. ”
