Vitamins and Nutritional Supplements

Vitamins and minerals function as co-enzymes, which means they help chemical reactions in the body happen a lot faster. Therefore, the vitamins and minerals you get from your diet are just as important as carbohydrates, protein and fats. However, you only need them in small amounts.

Many of the B-complex vitamins help your body burn carbohydrates for energy. Vitamin A is needed for vision. Zinc is involved in many metabolic processes, and vitamin C helps keep connective tissue strong and your immune system functioning.

A healthy, balanced diet provides adequate amounts of these and other "helpers." An unhealthy diet may make your body deficient in one or more of these.

In addition to helping you design a balanced diet that supplies nutritional support, our dietary and wellness programs will advise you and help incorporate the use of vitamin & nutritional supplements tailored to your body's personal needs.
