Vitamins For a Healthy Life

We all know that vitamins are very important if want to stay healthy. We need vitamins in very small proportions to let our body grow and function in the right way. Since we can not make vitamins ourselves, we will have to supply our body with vitamins by following a well balanced diet.

The diet must be well balanced because we need all different kinds of vitamins, 13 in total. Our main source of vitamins is of course our food. Different kinds of food contain different kinds of vitamins and that's why our diet must be well balanced. Our health would suffer if we our diet would lack certain vitamins.

Of course there are differences between men , women and children. A larger body generally needs more vitamins than a smaller body. But we can address more groups of people that have different needs for vitamins.

In certain periods in our lives we ask more from our body than in other periods and some people are more active than others. This results in other needs for vitamins. For example when a woman gets pregnant her body and the body of her child needs more folic acid (vitamin B9) then non pregnant people.
