What are Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are organic substances obtained from plants and animals which your body needs to function properly. They are important in boosting you immune system, for growth and development, and helps keep your cells and organs work at their best.

Vitamins are divided into two groups, the fat - soluble vitamins and water - soluble vitamins.

The fat -soluble vitamins are stored in tissues and are dissolved in liquid fat in your body before they are used. Such vitamins are vitamins A, D, E and K. The water - soluble vitamins include vitamins C and the B - complex and these need to dissolve in water before the body can absorb them. What you don't use is lost through in urination orperspiration, so a fresh supply is needed everyday.
