Adequate levels of vitamins in the body need to be maintained on a daily basis. Excesses of the water-soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin C, are excreted in the urine, whereas the fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin A, are stored. These water-soluble vitamins (excluding Vitamin C) allow the enzymes that break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates to function, thereby allowing the release and absorption of the energy within these micro-nutrients. The food we eat does not always provide the levels of nutrition expected. Fresh produce may be heat-affected, or stored for excessive amounts of time, so that little nutritional value is left. Medications, illness, or other food types can also affect the uptake of nutrients by the body. Dietary assistance such as vitamin supplements may help to balance these deficiencies, promoting a healthy body. If your looking for Fusion Health you will probably find it here. We also supply coconut , tissue salts and vital greens as a great source of natural therapies

The classification of vitamins is based upon their activity-the chemical and biological functions that each is involved with within the human body. Therefore, a "vitamin" classification may well refer to a series of "vitamer" compounds, each of which is related by the work it undertakes. For example, "B-12" refers to several vitamers, which are the chemical compounds that exhibit the "B-12" vitamin activity.

The body is unable to produce sufficient quantities of vitamins, yet these organic compounds are required for a range of biochemical functions. Metabolism, the process by which food is converted into energy for use within the body, is dependent on the B group vitamins, as coenzymes, which act as catalysts or subtrates, (molecules acted upon by enzymes). Others act as antioxidants, ( for example, vitamin E), helping to rid cells of free radicals; as hormones, regulating specific processes; or by affecting tissue and cell growth, (such as vitamin A).

The human body must ingest vitamins in order to function optimally. Conveniently, the advent of synthetically-produced vitamins in the last century, has removed the need to locate and ingest the necessary levels through the food eaten. Supplementation inexpensively allows for the rectification of deficiencies in the quality or quantity of these nutrients obtained in the diet,and ensures optimal levels are mantained. Vitamins are an essential part of cellular structure, including bones and soft tissue. They also assist with most bodily reactions, such as metabolism, in which energy is released from food, and growth. Therefore, vitamins offer structural and functional support.

However, the body is only able to manufacture some vitamins, and none of the minerals. These must be obtained through diet. Also, health and lifestyle factors can increase the levels of vitamins required for optimal well-being. Vices such as smoking, drinking or a lack of exercise, and environmental factors, including pollution and stress, affect the levels needed. For example, the numbers of free-radicals produced by the body increases, which causes cellular damage. Anti-oxidants (ingested from food or supplements) alter these into inert compounds, thereby protecting the body from oxidative damage.

Further, the quality of the food we ingest may not be as high as assumed. Exposure to chemicals, over-processing, and a long storage life can all reduce the amount of vitamins actually contained within food.

Thus, there isn't always the time or opportunity to ensure an optimal intake of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin supplements are a convenient and easy way to help ensure the requirements are met.

Maintaining optimal levels of nutrients boosts the immune system, thereby reducing the likelihood and severity of disease and infection, promotes anti-ageing, and helps the body to perform at its best.
