Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamins are organic minerals obtained from plants or animals. Vitamins fall into two categories: fat-soluble and water-soluble. The fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E & K, dissolve in fat and easily stored in your body. Water-soluble vitamins such as C & B-complex vitamins cannot be stored in your body. Minerals are inorganic elements that are obtained from the soil and water and are absorbed by plants or eaten by animals. Your body needs larger amounts of some minerals, such as calcium, etc, that help in the growth of your bones & keep you healthy. Trace Minerals are another category of minerals, such as chromium, copper, iodine, iron, selenium, and zinc, as people only need very small amounts of them each day.
