Vitamins and Minerals!

We know that fruits, veggies and whole grains are key to staying healthy. What are they made of?

Vitamins and Minerals and Antioxidants

Vitamins are needed for life but are not produced by our bodies. They can be obtained from food and supplements.

Minerals are also obtained from food and supplements and are needed so that vitamins can do their job.

Antioxidant vitamins and minerals that feed cells, protecting it from damage.

There are many different types of vitamins and minerals that help certain functions of the body. They all work together to produce and maintain healthy cells.

We need to be aware that we can't obtain vitamins and minerals from our food alone. We are over farming our fields, depleting nutrients from the soil and making poor food choices.

With fast food on the rise, we are eating more processed foods than ever. This type of eating damages the cells. Damaged cells lead to diseases.

Therefore, we need to make healthy choices when it comes to food AND we need to supplement to get the amounts of vitamins and minerals into our bodies to produce healthy cells.

What else to Vitamins and Minerals do besides help with healthy cells?

By having healthy cells you increase your body power, build up your immune system, create more energy, look and feel younger! Diseases should not be part of the aging process!
