Let’s talk vitamins

Vitamins are a must. They play several roles in the body, some functions require a specific vitamin, others several. Vitamins do not give more energy and an overdose brings no benefits.

Here are some of the functions that the main vitamins are associated with:

Vitamin D: Increases the strength of the immune system, strengthens bones, teeth, hair and nails. It also plays a role in insomnia and depression. It acts as an antioxidant.

Zinc: It can reduce the duration of a cold/cough, decrease the symptoms of acne but it also acts on growth, inflammation, the endocrine system and the reproductive system.

Magnesium: It reduces fatigue and regulates sleep; it also helps with concentration and can help reduce menstrual cramps for women.
