Vitamins, minerals and supplements: part two.
Community Pract. 2005 Oct; 78(10):366-8.CP

Abstract

Vitamins and minerals are organic food substances found only in plants and animals and are essential to the normal functioning of the body. Although only required in small amounts, as previously discussed in the past decade there has been an increased use of vitamin, mineral, herbal and nutritional supplements in the general population. While deficiencies in such nutrients can be harmful to health, conflicting claims have been made about the health benefits of such supplementation. In the second of an occasional series on vitamins, minerals, and supplements, JUNE THOMPSON gives an overview of the role that water-soluble vitamins play in the health of the individual, including their functions, and the potential impact of any deficiency of these.
