Micronutrients: The Vital Nutrients
From an early age you have probably been bombarded with the fact that the intake of vitamins and minerals in your organism is of the utmost importance and has a beneficial effect on your health. When we were kids, in order to please our parents who were convinced that we should eat ridiculous amounts of fruit and vegetables every day, we obeyed, some of us with frustrated face. But we were young and we did not know that insufficient intake of vitamins could affect our health. Today we are older and hopefully wiser, and we should be able to acknowledge the importance of fruit and vegetables for our health and also how important it is to include fibre in our diet, keeping our immune system in equilibrium and therefore successfully fighting against cold and other diseases.
Sunny vitamin – Vitamin D
Did you know that vitamin D is also called the "sunny vitamin" and that it is the only vitamin that our body can produce by itself. The human body needs to be exposed to sufficient sunlight to produce it in a sufficient quantity, which is rather difficult during autumn and winter months. That is why we need to add this vitamin in a form of food supplements and proper nutrition. Are you familiar with all the positive effects of vitamin D?
