What are Vitamins?

Vitamins are organic compounds that are essential for normal physiological functions in the human body. They are micronutrients, meaning they are required in small amounts but play crucial roles in various biochemical processes necessary for growth, development, and overall health.

Vitamins are obtained primarily through diet, although some can be synthesized by the body or obtained through sunlight exposure (e.g., vitamin D). A balanced diet containing a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy products typically provides adequate vitamin intake. However, certain factors such as dietary restrictions, medical conditions, age, and lifestyle choices may increase the risk of vitamin deficiencies.

While a balanced diet is ideal, there are situations where vitamin supplements might be recommended by a doctor:

- Dietary restrictions: People with limited dietary options due to allergies, intolerances, or following specific diets (vegan, vegetarian) might benefit from supplements.

- Increased needs: Certain life stages and health conditions can increase vitamin needs. These include pregnancy and breastfeeding, older age, digestive disorders that affect nutrient absorption, and some chronic illnesses.
