What is the difference between vitamins and minerals?
Our bodies need vitamins and minerals to function properly. Vitamins are organic substances, which means they’re produced by plants and animals. Minerals, on the other hand, are from the earth or water and are absorbed by plants or eaten by animals.
How do I determine which supplements are good for me?
When finding out which supplements are right for your lifestyle, your diet is always a good starting point. Most vegans, for example, need vitamin B12 supplements since this important nutrient is only found in animal products. Many people take a multivitamin to ensure they’re covered and to make up for any possible deficiencies.
Do I necessarily need extra vitamins and minerals?
If you have a healthy and varied diet, chances are you do not need extra vitamins and minerals. If you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just don’t eat certain foods like bread or oily fish, then there’s a chance you’re missing out on important vitamins or minerals. If you want to be sure, you can always get tested at your local GP.
