Vitamins And Minerals, What Each One Does For You.

 Learn what your body needs every day to survive...

Vitamins and Minerals are needed by the body every second of the day, if you want to live a long healthy life that is. But if not, then don't worry about any of this, and just resign yourself to living a life filled with pains, diseases and sicknesses. And since I know that no one likes to be weak, likes to live with pain, likes to suffer, likes to be miserable, then you my friend, need to learn as much as you can about vitamins and minerals that your body needs to consume in order for it to function at maximum efficiency. All because you have plans to work on, you have things to do, you have a great life to enjoy, and you even have other people who are depending on you to be loved, to be cared for, to be friends with and to spend time with. And so you don't have time to be sick,  nor can you afford  to waste your time, energy and money on buying medications or getting medical operations. So you have to get your much needed share of vitamins and minerals daily, so you can continue being at your best and contribute all that you can to this wonderful world, and make your mark, as well build your eternal legacy. James Dazouloute, Health Coach.

So with all that said, here is a short list of vitamins and minerals that you can use as a guideline, also as a knowledge base to know what to strive for with each ingredient.
