Vitamins generally cannot be made by your body and must be obtained from your diet or from supplements and therefore vitamins are essential nutrients.
Vitamins are carbon-containing, organic substances that are required for normal metabolism. Vitamins generally cannot be made by your body and must be obtained from the food we eat, and the water we drink. Exceptions to this definition include Vitamin D, which is naturally produced by the body in limited quantities; and Vitamin B12, which is produced by bacterial flora in the intestinal tract. Vitamins are necessary for normal health and growth.
Vitamins usually are separated into water-soluble (e.g., the B vitamins, Vitamin C) and fat-soluble (e.g., vitamins A, D, E, K) groups.
Vitamins are distinct
from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in function as well as in the quantities
in which you require them. If a vitamin is absent from your diet or it is not
being properly absorbed, a specific deficiency disease may develop.
Supplementing your diet with vitamins is often recommended by physicians when any of the following conditions are present: vitamin deficiency, poor intestinal absorption, increased tissue requirements, stress, pregnancy, lactation, and menstruation. Some disorders including hyperthyroidism, infectious diseases accompanied by fever, and tissue-wasting disease also require an increase of vitamins.
Vitamins and minerals function as "cofactors" in the metabolism of products in the body. Most aspects of body metabolism proceed with the aid of specific enzymes, but if additional catalysts were not present (cofactor vitamins and minerals), the reactions would proceed slowly to a point of ineffectiveness.
Why Minerals before Vitamins?
the body's ability to absorb, and use minerals, and without minerals, vitamins
have no purpose, and are quickly eliminated from the body. It is a huge waste
of money to gobble handfuls of high potency tablets, without backing them up
with the right minerals. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals,
but without minerals, vitamins are useless.
This discovery is one of the latest and most important revelations by science about human health. Research has shown direct correlation between mineral deficiencies and illnesses.
