Are you unable to get adequate nutrition through diet alone? Why are vitamins important?

Vitamins are organic compounds that help our body to grow and work more effectively. Vitamins help in converting food into energy, growth, digestion, wound healing and improving your immunity. 

Usually vitamins are obtained by food but sometimes due to lack of nutritious food intake and poor lifestyle habits such as alcohol and smoking, there is a higher risk of vitamin deficiency. Therefore, supplements are highly recommended to increase vitamin levels. 

Who needs vitamin supplements?

      1. Vegetarians who lack in vitamin B12, Omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and zinc
      2. People who are less exposed to sunlight (vitamin D)
      3. Pregnant and/or breastfeeding women who lack folic acid, iron, and calcium 
      4. People who have poor nutritional intake 
      5. Women undergoing menopause
      6. People taking antibiotics
      7. People with poor vision
      8. People with Cold & Flu symptoms etc. 
      9. People wanting to improve their overall general health and wellbeing
