Vitamins are organic substances or groups of related substances found in many foods. They're essential nutrients required in very small amounts to maintain good health. Do you know the best food sources of vitamin C, thiamine, folic acid or magnesium? Do you eat five portions of vegetables and fruit per day? Are you getting enough calcium and vitamin D from your diet to protect your bone health? This pamphlet will guide you on the best food sources of vitamins and minerals to optimise your diet before you consider supplementation at an additional cost.
What are nutrients and micronutrients?
You’ll receive vitamins, minerals, non-nutritive substances by eating plenty of vegetables and fruit every day. These are organic compounds that cannot be synthesised by the body (with the exception of a few such as Vitamin D and vitamin K). They are essential in adequate amounts for the control of metabolic processes, including the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and protein, into energy.
