Why Vitamins and Supplements

While there’s no one size fits all approach to living a healthy lifestyle, we know that focusing on our nutrition and eating a balanced diet help you to stay energised and nourished. Vitamins and supplements can be of assistance to bring you one step closer to your health and wellness goals, if dietary intake is inadequate.1

The Top Reasons to Take Vitamins

Keep Our Bodies in Good Working Order

Vitamins work hard to keep our bodies functioning properly and they help drive essential processes needed in our everyday lives. Each nutrient is on a mission to deliver health benefits that help you reach your wellness goals.

Healthy Aging

Our cells experience wear and tear as time passes. Vitamins, like antioxidants, function to protect cells from environmental stressors.2

Cover Your Nutritional Bases

We do our best to eat healthy, but it’s not always easy to eat a balanced diet. A multivitamin can help to work towards your regular daily requirements for essential vitamins and minerals, if dietary intake is inadequate.

What Can Vitamins Do for Your Health?

Support Immunity

Good nutrition contributes to a healthy immune system.

Vitamin C is considered one of the biggest immune supporters. Zinc is also important for immune cell development and communication and may promote immune health.3

Support a Healthy Metabolism

B-complex vitamins, like thiamine, riboflavin, folate, biotin, and vitamins B6 and B12 collaborate with other enzymes in your body to metabolise energy from protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Staying physically active and eating a healthy diet also help to maintain a healthy metabolism—factors that are important for healthy aging and your overall health.5

Maintain Strong Bones

You probably already know that calcium is important for healthy bones. But did you know that calcium needs vitamin D to successfully fulfill its job of helping to build healthy bones?

The skin produces vitamin D following direct exposure to sunlight, but the necessary use of sunscreen, weak winter sunlight, and poor skin absorption all work against production of this vital nutrient. 6

Meeting Your Nutritional Needs

Committing to a new eating habit or lifestyle can feel rewarding, but you may unintentionally eliminate some essential vitamins and minerals in your diet. Multivitamin supplements can help fill nutritional gaps.

Supplements assist with dietary gaps

Obtaining nutrients from food intake is the best way to organically deliver benefits to the body, as vitamin and mineral supplements should not replace a balanced diet.
