Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A precursor)
Beta-carotene, also known as pro-vitamin A, can be converted into vitamin A when additional levels are required. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin and is part of a family of compounds, including retinol, retinal and beta-carotene. All the body’s tissues need vitamin A for general growth and repair. Vitamin A helps to support healthy bone growth and supports a healthy immune system.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin C is found in peppers (sweet, green, red, hot red and green chili), citrus fruits and Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach, guava, kiwi fruit, currants and strawberries. Nuts and grains contain small amounts of vitamin C. It is important to note that cooking can destroys vitamin C activity. Vitamin C is integral in supporting a healthy immune system and providing some antioxidant defense. The body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. Therefore, vitamin C must be acquired through diet or supplementation.
Thiamin (Vitamin B1)
Thiamin plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It is required for a healthy nervous system and helps in maintaining healthy enzyme function.
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for many aspects of health. It promotes skin health and it is also important for the conversion of food to energy. Niacin (also known as vitamin B-3) is found in dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats, nuts, eggs, legumes, and enriched breads and cereals.
Vitamin B12 is naturally found in meats, liver, beef, pork, eggs, whole milk, cheese, whole wheat bread and fish. Vitamin B12 can only be found in animal products, with small amounts derived from fermented soy products, such as miso and tempeh, and peanuts. It is essential that individuals who are not able to obtain adequate amounts through diets consume a vitamin B12 supplement to maintain optimal health. Vitamin B12 itself is responsible for maintaining optimum energy levels, as it plays a vital role in the Krebs energy cycle. It also supports healthy nervous system.
Folate (Folic acid)
Folic acid is mainly found in fruits and vegetables. Dark, leafy greens, oranges, orange juice, beans and peas are the best sources, as well as Brewer’s yeast, which supplies additional B vitamins. Folic acid plays a key role by boosting the benefits of vitamin B12 supplementation. These two B vitamins join forces and work together in maintaining normal red blood cells.
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
Vitamin B2 is found in liver, dairy products, dark green vegetables and some types of seafood. Vitamin B2 serves as a co-enzyme, working with other B vitamins. It supports healthy skin. Vitamin B2 plays a crucial role in turning food into energy. Vitamin B2 aids in the breakdown of fats, while functioning as a cofactor or helper in activating B6 and folic acid. Vitamin B2 is water-soluble and cannot be stored by the body except in insignificant amounts; thus, it must be replenished daily.
Poultry, fish, whole grains and bananas are the main dietary sources of vitamin B6. It also assists in the maintenance of healthy red and white blood cells. Vitamin B6 is required for haemoglobin synthesis. It is also a nutrient that helps to maintain healthy brain and nerves function.
Regular sunlight exposure is the main way that most humans get their vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D are vitamin D-fortified milk, cod liver oil and fatty fish, such as salmon. Small amounts are found in egg yolks and liver. Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and supports the production of several proteins involved in calcium absorption and storage. Vitamin D works with calcium to promote strong bones.
The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E, and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. The main health benefit of supplemental vitamin E comes from its immune supporting antioxidant activity. Vitamin E is one of the fat-soluble antioxidants in the body. In turn, vitamin E helps protects cell membranes from free radical damage.
Calcium is found in milk, cheese, yogurt, corn tortillas, Chinese cabbage (Napa), kale and broccoli. Calcium is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological roles. Calcium is needed for maintaining healthy bones. The skeleton has an obvious structural requisite for calcium, as well as acts as a storehouse for calcium. Apart from being a major constituent of bones and teeth, calcium supports healthy muscle function. A sufficient daily calcium intake is necessary for maintaining bone density, and maintaining healthy teeth and bones. Low levels of calcium have been associated with reduced bone mass.
Chromium is a trace mineral found naturally in some cereals, meats, poultry, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, prunes mushrooms, fish and beer.
The richest sources of dietary copper derive from organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereal, whole grain products and cocoa products. Copper is an essential trace mineral. It is needed for bone strength, and immune health.
Iodine is found in most seafood and in iodised salt. It is a necessary component of thyroid hormones and helps maintain a healthy functioning metabolism.
Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green, leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches and milk are less rich sources of magnesium. Refined and processed foods are generally quite low in magnesium. Magnesium is a component of the mineralised part of bone in adults. It is important for the mobilisation and transportation of calcium for further utilisation. It works together with calcium and vitamin D to help keep bones strong. Magnesium also plays a key role in maintaining healthy muscle tissue.
Manganese is a mineral found in large quantities in both plant and animal matter. The most valuable dietary sources of manganese include whole grains, nuts, leafy vegetables and teas. Manganese is concentrated in the bran of grains, which is often removed during processing. It supports healthy connective tissue and bones. It also plays a role in calcium absorption, and supports brain and nerve functions.
Foods rich in potassium include fresh vegetables and fruits such as bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery. Potassium is an essential mineral that helps to keep fluid balance. It also plays a role in a wide variety of biochemical and physiological processes. Potassium promotes normal muscle relaxation.
The best dietary sources of selenium include nuts, unrefined grains, brown rice, wheat germ and seafood.
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafood, including oysters. It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in many different enzyme reactions. Thus, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones and muscles, but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues. It has been claimed that zinc supports normal immune health. Because zinc is involved in such a great number of enzymatic processes it has been found to support a large range of functions including supporting protein synthesis, healthy growth and healthy enzyme activity.
Biotin can be found in food sources, such as egg yolks, peanuts, beef liver, milk (10 mcg/cup),cereals, almonds and Brewer’s yeast. It plays a role in the citric acid cycle, which is the process in which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin assists in various metabolic chemical conversions.

Why is taking a vitamin supplement important?
A vitamin may be broadly defined as a substance that is essential for the maintenance of normal metabolic function, but which is not produced in the body and, therefore, must be consumed from a source outside the body. They are necessary for maintaining healthy body metabolism function. Reduction of vitamin levels over extended periods can result in vitamin deficiency which can be avoided by adequate vitamin intake.
How important are minerals?
Minerals provide a vital role in nutrition. Virtually no nutritional benefit from some vitamins would be possible without the assistance of one or more key minerals. There are a number of vital roles that minerals play in the body. It is their nonorganic components that initiate the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates and lipids. In addition to their assistance in the metabolic process, minerals aid the regulation of water and electrolyte balance.
