They are necessary elements in the process of converting food to energy and in the growth and repair of body tissue reduction of vitamin levels over extended periods can result in vitamin deficiency. These shortages may lead to symptoms, which can include loss of appetite, loss of body weight, increased irritability, and sleeplessness or constant drowsiness. Deficiencies of this nature can be easily be reversed by adequate vitamin intake.
How many of us sit down at home to three complete and balanced meals a day? Very few! Today’s eating habits have been heavily influenced by fast-food restaurants, food fads, weight-loss diets and ever increasing use of unfortified convenience foods. Modern processing and preparation techniques often rob foods of vitamin content, as can growth, harvest, and storage conditions. We often come up short. It is up to us to make up the difference with supplements.
