From conception to birth and beyond, the health of all multi-cellular organisms relies on the presence of a wide range of vitamins and minerals, many in large part obtained from a normal
healthy diet, and others generated by unexpected factors including sunshine (Vitamin D) and gut flora (Vitamin K and biotin).
The correct intake of vitamins and minerals is essential to efficiently process the chemical energy provided by food, but this can be compromised by lowering food standards and unhealthy lifestyles.
‘Primary’ deficiencies may occur when a suitable variety, quantity and/or quality of food is unavailable. ‘Secondary’ deficiencies are caused by ‘lifestyle factors’ such as caffeine, smoking, excessive alcohol and the use of certain medications. An underlying health disorder may also prevent or limit vitamin and mineral absorption.
