Food Supplements Vitamins

Vitamins are organic substances that are essential for the growth and functioning of the body. These vitamins are provided by the diet, they can not be synthesized by the body (except vitamin D). Their absence or insufficiency in the diet causes states of deficiencies.

Vitamins are substances that have no energy value but are essential for our health. Fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E and K) that can be stored by the body, and water-soluble vitamins that are not usually stored are distinguished. Vitamin losses are therefore unavoidable and must be offset by regular intake, paying attention to the high sensitivity of natural vitamins to heat, light, or oxidation of the air.

Vitamin D , which is usually supplied by the sun's rays, has played a role in healthy bones and teeth because it improves blood calcium. It helps to avoid problems of fracture or osteoporosis. Vitamin D supplements may be in the form of tablets, drops or capsules.

Vitamin B is complex because it consists of several other vitamins called thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B8), folate (B9) and cobalamin (B12). This set of vitamins acts on energy, on red blood cells, sex hormones, the digestive system, the immune system and the skin. Dietary supplements that provide a vitamin B intake are in the form of capsules, swallowing tablets, melt or chew, or capsules.

Vitamin C allows the synthesis of collagen, the elastic fibers that strengthen the ligaments and solidify the skin and bones. Vitamin C is also called ascorbic acid. To increase vitamin C intake, there are film-coated tablets, effervescent, to suck or chew, as well as capsules containing cherry or acerola.

An adequate intake of vitamins thus favors the prevention of numerous pathologies (cardiovacular, oncological ...). Fortunately, our diet allows us to cover most of our vitamin needs. But in some cases, a supplement may be necessary, being careful to respect the recommended daily intake to avoid overdose.
