Vitamins and Minerals are micronutrients that are essential to maintain health and general wellbeing. Your body needs these nutrients for reproduction, maintenance, growth, and regulation of bodily processes. An appropriate intake of these micronutrients can bring many health benefits, such as improved brain function, reduced oxidative stress, increased energy levels and maintenance of healthy bones, hair, skin and nails.

Ideally, the consumption of these micronutrients would come from nutrient-dense foods. However, different agricultural practices have been shown to reduce and remove many of these micronutrients from the foods we consume.
