Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

vitamins allow your body to grow and develop. They also play important roles in bodily functions such as metabolism, immunity and digestion. There are 13 essential vitamins, including vitamins A, C, D, E, and K and B vitamins such as riboflavin and folate.

Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy teeth, bones, soft tissue, mucus membranes, and skin. Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine.Vitamin B6 helps form red blood cells and maintain brain function. This vitamin also plays an important role in the proteins that are part of many chemical reactions in the body.

Although it is important to obtain vitamins and minerals  from eating healthy foods, most of us need supplementation to fill in the gaps where diet leaves off.

  1. A large amount of food would be required to get your daily needs
  2. Eating processed foods fewer nutrients can be gained from meals
  3. Supplementation can help maintain a healthy immune system.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
