Vitamins For Your Body

Vitamins play a crucial role in our body’s chemistry processes but many people neglect their importance and eventually end up getting ill or suffering because of their ignorance. We generally assume that we can take most or all of the needed vitamins and minerals strictly from our diet, but this is not always true and it is a process that is different from one person to another. Vitamins supplements come as an alternative to a highly balanced diet, which many of us just can’t keep to. There are a few basic things that we should know about how to ensure a good vitamin supply and reduce the chances of falling sick.
The first thing we should be aware of is that each of our bodies is unique – there are not two human beings exactly the same. Because of this it is hard to come up with a precise dosage of vitamins that you need on a daily basis. Vitamin intake is largely dependant on your diet. As many people already know, fruits and vegetables are the best source for the top vitamins that we need to live a healthy life. They provide good amounts of vitamins A, C, D and E (and several other) that rank highest on the importance scale.
When your body receives less vitamins than it needs you will experience several negative effects, manifested in different forms. Too little C vitamin, for example, will lower your defense mechanism against viral infections, while a lack of the A vitamin can lead to poorer eyesight. There are several factors that can cause a need for more vitamins. You may need to help your body out with vitamin supplements if you are eating irregularly or if your main diet is formed from fast food items or processed foods. Making physical efforts for long periods of time also puts more stress on your organism, which, in turn, will demand more resources in order to replenish your energy.
However, vitamin supplements should also be used cautiously, as they can lead to a vitamin overdose. Vitamins A and D, taken alone, may have serious side effects if they are not accompanied by other multi vitamin supplements. Some people respond negatively to higher doses of C and E vitamins. Calcium, an essential mineral for our bone system, needs to be accompanied by D vitamin. Otherwise, the body only keeps a small amount of Calcium and eliminates the rest. The D vitamin helps your body absorb Calcium better. Other mineral – vitamin combinations are especially effective, such as the B6 vitamin and Magnesium. Tandems such as the ones mentioned above work well together because each component balances the other by helping the body to make the most of their presence.
Insufficient vitamins may lead to a weakened immune system that is very permissive with viruses, highly increasing your chances of getting sick. Tiredness, apathy and low energy levels may also appear when your vitamin equilibrium has been altered.
