Welcome to the Ultimate Guide to Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are critical for health and well-being. They are known as "micronutrients," as they are compounds and elements needed in only very small amounts. Despite the small amounts required, many people can unknowingly have deficiencies in many of these key nutrients.

The purpose of this guide is to provide in-depth information on these important nutrients. We have compiled comprehensive articles on what they are, how vitamins and minerals function in the body, why you need them for good health, signs and symptoms of deficiency, good dietary sources, supplementation info, and more.

We keep this guide up-to-date with the articles covering the information, news, and research on vitamins and minerals. Visit often to stay current on the most recent information and recommendations.
