Vitamins are essential nutrients that are needed in small amounts. They help ensure other nutrients in the body get where they need to go or are properly broken down. A varied diet will ensure healthy vitamin intake.
Not getting enough of a vitamin can cause a deficiency, but too much of a vitamin can cause toxicity. Consider some vitamin intake recommendations to avoid deficiencies and toxicities.
Minerals are solid inorganic chemical compounds found in nature that are essential for life. Learn about the types of minerals the body needs and how to obtain them. Too little or too much of a mineral can cause deficiency or toxicity.
Water is the most important nutrient for the body. Learn the roles of water in the body, from metabolism to bodily fluids, and how to maintain water balance.
