Vitamins Vitamins are organic compounds, that are essential in small amounts for normal metabolism. Vitamins (with the exception of vitamin D) cannot be synthesized by humans They need to be ingested in the diet to prevent disorders of metabolism.

Minerals We get minerals either by eating plants grown on mineralrich soil or by eating animals that have fed on these plants. Calcium, magnesium and phosphorus are the major constituents of bone. Sodium and potassium control your body's water balance. Other minerals (chromium, iron, and magnesium) are needed for various chemical processes to take place in the body.

Phytonutrients The term "phytonutrient" is applied to those plant compounds that promote better health

*although they are not absolutely essential to human health.

Food supplements "Food supplements" is a general term for vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural compounds claimed to improve health when taken in small amounts as alternatives or supplements to drugs.
