Why do we need vitamins and minerals?

We are all aware that a well-balanced diet is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Vitamins and minerals are compounds present in a variety of natural foods which the body requires in small amounts to function correctly and remain healthy. They are both crucial for many different bodily functions such as aiding the formation of new blood cells, keeping our eyes, bones and nerves healthy as well as strengthening our immune systems. When the body does not get a sufficient supply of vitamins and minerals a deficiency will occur. 

Are you getting enough?

Just because your diet is nutritious and well-balanced, doesn't necessarily mean you're getting all the nutrients you need. Several factors impact how well the body absorbs nutrients from foods ingested, including how the food is prepared, age, health status and other foods eaten at the same time. Often it can be difficult to know if you are getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals, but Medichecks offers a simple way to see how your diet is affecting your health.
