Vitamins… Your body does not create vitamins. … Vitamins and minerals are essential substances that our bodies need to develop and function normally.
The known vitamins include A, C, D, E, and K, and the B vitamins: thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxal (B6), cobalamin (B12), biotin, and folate/folic acid. Vitamin C supplements help form tissues, cells, bones, teeth, heal wounds and improve the immune system’s performance.
Vitamin E supplements protect the outer cell membranes and assisting the immune system in fighting off diseases. Vitamin K helps the body’s clotting in wounded areas. Mineral supplements also have a broad range of functions.
