What are Vitamins?
Vitamins are essential nutrients that are vital to help the body perform a huge range of functions. They are considered essential as your body can’t make vitamins itself and so they have to come from your diet. You can find a range of vitamins in foods such as fruit and vegetables, as well as grains and barley. They all have different functions in the body and support your overall health and wellbeing.
What are the Benefits of Vitamins?
As vitamins are an essential part of your diet, it is important to reach your recommended daily requirement in order for your body to be able to function properly. If you find it hard to hit your suggested intake, supplementing with vitamins can be a convenient solution. Vitamin C for example is a really important nutrient as it supports your immune system and metabolism, helps to reduce tiredness, and helps to maintain your skin — helping you to feel your best, inside out.

Should I take vitamins?
Taking vitamins can be a great way to ensure you're not dealing with any diet related deficiencies. Certain groups may benefit from taking certain vitamins. For example, as we get older our ability to produce vitamin D naturally deteriorates and so supplementing may be of benefit.
Why are vitamins important?
Vitamins are essential dietary components because we cannot produce them ourselves. They also play a wide variety of roles in processes that help sustain life and optimise health.
How do I hit my vitamin daily target?
By achieving a diverse, nutrient dense diet rich in fruits, veggies, grains, beans and legumes and even animal sources, depending on whichever dietary practice you follow. Supplements can be a great way to avoid any deficiencies.

Do vitamins help with tiredness?
Deficiency of certain vitamins, for example, the B vitamins, which are crucial for normalized metabolism, can lead to feelings of fatigue so correcting these deficiencies may alleviate your tiredness.
What is the recommended daily intake for vitamins?
The recommended dietary intake (RDI), sometimes referred to as recommended daily intake, is the average daily intake level of a particular nutrient that is likely to meet the nutrient requirements of 97-98% of healthy individuals in a particular life stage or gender group. You can check out the vitamin RDIs outlined by the UK's public health governing body here.
Do vitamins help with the immune system?
Vitamins do support the normalised function of our immune system. A deficiency may lead to the immune systems not functioning as they should which may make us more susceptible to infection or illness.
