Vitamins and Minerals

Natural vitamins are found only in living things, that is, plants and animals.
Your body, with a few exceptions, can't manufacture vitamins. They must
be supplied in your food or in dietary supplements but supplements can't
replace food, especially fruits and vegetables which provide thousands of
substances, some of which have well-known functions, and some whose
roles in the human body are not yet understood or recognized.
Vitamins and minerals … ...
◊ reduce your risk of getting a stroke or heart attack!
◊ strengthen your nails!
◊ improve your hair condition, strength and growth by providing certain
essential nutrients to the hair follicle!
◊ beautify your skin by keeping it smooth, soft and disease-free!
◊ provide essential compounds that are necessary for growth, health,
normal metabolism and physical well-being! Without them, you would
die!

promote normal growth and development!
◊ maintain bone density and strength!
◊ regulate blood clotting!
◊ help in the function of nerves and muscles, including regulating a
normal heart beat!
When it comes to choosing a healthy diet for their children, many parents
don't realize the important role that beverages play. For example, fruit
flavored drinks and soft drinks are not a substitute for real fruit. Many of
these drinks only contain 10% real fruit juice. The very best drinks are
made from whole fruit and you can make great fruity healthy drinks at
home.
