The human body needs specific vitamins and minerals to properly function. Practicing a healthier diet can help, but sometimes you need an extra boost.

Before NutriSport Pharmacal helps you create the right vitamin supplement for your brand, it’s important to understand how vitamins work. Here’s a guide to help you understand some of the different types of vitamins:

Water-Soluble Vitamins

Vitamin C

Biotin

Niacin

Pantothenic Acid

Folic Acid

B complex Vitamins

Fat-Soluble Vitamins

Vitamin A

Vitamin D

Vitamin E

Vitamin K

Multi-Vitamin Supplement

Since these vitamins are stored in the body for use later, they don’t have to be replenished as often as water-soluble vitamins.

Vitamin A – Eye, teeth, and skin health, along with development and growth.

B complex Vitamins – Energy production, iron absorption, and immune system function. 

Vitamin C – Iron absorption, strengthening blood vessels, and skin elasticity.

Vitamin D – Bone health and healing within the body.

Vitamin E – Supports blood circulation and helps protect the body from free radicals.

Vitamin K – Supports healthy blood coagulation.

Folic Acid – Helps with cell renewal and helps to prevent birth defects during pregnancy.

Calcium – Bone and teeth health.

Iron – Helps support muscle building and healthy blood circulation

Zinc – Boosts the function of the immune system, fertility, and growth.

Chromium – An essential nutrient for the function of glucose in the body.

Macro and Micro Minerals

Macro minerals are needed in a larger amount and they are harder to get from your regular diet. Micro minerals, also known as trace minerals are needed in smaller amounts for a healthy body.

The most common macro minerals to consider for your multi-vitamin include:

Calcium

Potassium

Phosphorus

Magnesium

Sodium

Chloride

Sulfur

The most common micro or trace minerals include:

Iron

Manganese

Copper

Iodine

Zinc

Cobalt

Fluoride

Selenium

Some of these minerals work together and may also work with the vitamins listed above. For example, calcium and vitamin D work together within the body.
