Natural vitamins are organic food substances found in living things, primarily plants. With few exceptions the body cannot manufacture or synthesize its own vitamins. Vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients must be supplied in the diet or in dietary supplements. They are essential to the normal functioning of our bodies. Vitamins are necessary for our growth, vitality and maintaining good health.
Key Nutrients Lost
Our environment has become damaged. The water and air are polluted and toxic. We have high levels of stress, little time to exercise and poor quality sleep. While good food should be our first source of health, nutrients in our food supply are depleted through non-sustainable farming practices and modern food processing. Our bodies need quality nutrients in adequate supply in order to grow, fight off disease and stay healthy. Quality supplements can help replace those missing nutrients.
