An essential nutrient is a nutrient that is required for normal body functioning that cannot be synthesized by the body. Vitamin and minerals are considered essential nutrients because they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help build/maintain bones, heal wounds and support our immune system. They also convert food into energy and repair cellular damage.

  • Most individuals can get the necessary vitamins and minerals through a healthy diet 
  • Taking oral vitamins and minerals helps get the recommended amounts when they can’t or don’t get them from food alone

If you don’t consume enough vitamins or minerals and levels are not optimal one can develop a deficiency. 

  • Specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies will cause specific symptoms and even cause or worsen chronic health conditions
