Vitamins are organic compounds that are essential for the body to function properly, but the body is not always able to produce them, so they enter the body in the form of nutrients.
The absorption and utilization of vitamins are greatly influenced by the minerals from which our body needs different amounts. However, in contrast to vitamins, the body is not able to produce minerals at all, so they must always be replaced from the outside.
Trace elements are minerals that are present in very small amounts in our body, but play an important role in the functioning of our metabolic processes.
With a varied diet, the intake of minerals, trace elements and vitamins can be ensured, however, in case of certain conditions or increased strain, additional supplementation may be necessary. Their lack can be a sign of illness even with proper nutrition.
