What are Vitamins and Why are They so Essential?

What are Vitamins and Why are They so Essential?

Vitamins are nutrients our bodies use to produce skin, muscle, bones, regulate metabolism, cognitive function,  immune responses, digestion and stress management. In fact, our bodies use vitamins for practically every task it performs, making vitamins an absolutely  necessary requirement for a properly functioning body. 

There are about 30 essential vitamins a healthy body needs to properly function. Of these “essential vitamins”, the “Who’s who” and what their respective roles in the body are listed here:

    Vitamin C helps improve our immune system’s ability to fight infections 

    Glutathione reduces stress, cell damage and chronic inflammation 

    Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine) helps prevent memory loss and complications in the nervous system 

    Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin) plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply 

    Vitamin B-3 (Niacin) improves cholesterol and triglyceride levels 

    Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid) promotes healthy skin, hair, eyes and liver 

    Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine) improves mental well-being 

    Vitamin B-7 (Biotin) helps convert certain nutrients into energy 

    Vitamin B-9 (Folic Acid) helps decrease brain fog 

    Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin) increases metabolism 

    The majority of vitamins we use are obtained from diet, with the exception of vitamin D which our body can make on its own with help from the sun. All other vitamins come from an outside source, namely diet. Federal food guidelines suggest minimum daily amounts of foods from different food groups in order for the body to configure the right “balance of vitamins”. The best way to get the right balance of vitamins is to have a broad, healthy diet. A daily blend of different fruits and vegetables, legumes, low fat protein (meat, fish) and dairy products will give you the proper balance of vitamins you need for a healthy body. Many processed food items available in the United States (like milk, juice and cereals) are also fortified with added vitamins and minerals to give an extra boost. 

    The best way to increase your vitamin intake is through diet. Simple changes to one’s daily diet can work wonders to bring in essential vitamins to improve bodily processes like energy metabolism and digestion. Chief Medical Officer at Synergy Health Advisors in New Jersey, Dr. Sakina Dinani,  recommends that  “The key to ensuring you are getting the vitamins your body needs is to have a broad daily diet. Challenge yourself to have 50 different natural foods a week.” The diversity of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, herbs and spices each add a part to the mix of essential vitamins needed for a properly functioning body.

    Many people who are looking to become healthier take multivitamin pills to add extra vitamins to their diet. Multivitamin pills have their advantages, especially for people with vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin Supplements are also helpful for pregnant and breastfeeding women or extreme athletes whose body uses a lot more energy and fuel, and need an extra boost of vitamin power. However, multivitamin pills have also been called a waste of money and effort as many multivitamin pills are minimally absorbed: Going in and coming out with no added effect let alone benefit. Another thing to consider before popping a multivitamin pill is that multivitamin pills do not have to undergo FDA approval before being sold. The best multivitamins are those which are checked by a third party regulator (organic pills), or that come with a safety guarantee.
