Importance of Vitamins in your Body

weight loss clinic new jersey

Living a healthy lifestyle means staying in tune with your body and listening to what it tells you. When it comes to nutrition, you do your best to get all the right nutrients to stay energized and nourished. Vitamins are there to complement the nutrients you get from food and bring you one step closer to your health and wellness goals.

Vitamins work hard to keep your body functioning properly. They help drive essential processes needed in your everyday lives. Each nutrient is on a mission to deliver health benefits that help you reach your wellness goals.

Your cells experience wear and tear as time passes, but proper nutrition can slow down this process. Vitamins function to protect cells from environmental stressors, helping to support healthy aging.

Vitamins help your body grow and work the way it should. There are 13 essential vitamins — vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, B6, B12, and folate). 

Vitamins have different jobs to help keep the body working properly. Some vitamins help you resist infections and keep your nerves healthy; while others may help your bodies get energy from food or help your blood clot properly.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the best way to meet your vitamin needs is to eat a balanced diet containing a variety of foods. If you can’t meet your needs through food alone, you may require dietary supplements. Seek guidance from your doctor or dietitian before taking supplements.
