Vitamins play important roles in various body functions. We have fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. Some roles that vitamins play in the body include metabolism, nerve functions, red blood cell formation, energy metabolism, and in maintaining healthy body tissues. In overall, vitamins help to strengthen immune system and maintain a healthy state of the body.
A body that is deficient in vitamins is susceptible to various diseases, owing to a compromised immunity. We have naturally occurring vitamins and synthetically produced vitamins. Natural Vitamins come from plant material containing the vitamin. On the hand, synthetic vitamins are artificial vitamins which are made to mimic the naturally occurring vitamins.
Natural vitamins are the best bet to strengthen immune system. Most of the synthetic vitamins lack co-factors and transporters, which are found in naturally occurring vitamins. With the deficiency in transporters and co-factors, the body doesn’t recognize them. Also, the synthetic vitamins lack trace mineral and rely on the body’s reserves for these minerals.
