7 Important Vitamins and Minerals You Need Everyday

A healthy nutritious diet involves six (6) classes of nutrients—carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water. Vitamins and minerals maybe considered as micronutrients (because our body only needs them in smaller amounts) but they help carry out the physiological processes our bodies need like metabolism.

If you might wonder, vitamins are chemical organic compounds found in all types of fruits and vegetables. They help in releasing energy from the food, maintaining healthy skin, hair, and eyes. All vitamins are equally essential to keep the body healthy and active.

On the other hand, minerals are chemical inorganic elements found in liquids, soil, and sometimes plants. They are important for the body’s bone formation, muscle contraction, blood coagulation, and acid-alkaline balance. Similar to vitamins, they help the body perform its normal processes and activities immediately.

Mattos Medical Group, a trusted provider of stem cell therapy in Armenia Avenue Tampa Florida, recognizes the problem that most adults in the U.S. do not typically get enough vitamins and minerals they need every day. Hence, here are the seven (7) important vitamins and minerals you should have in your diet every day.
