VITAMINS help drive biological processes, help absorb other essential nutrients such as minerals, protect from free radical damage, are involved in hormone production and help release energy from food. Minerals are also involved in a wide range of important functions in the body and are involved in every tissue. Minerals are divided into two categories: macro-minerals and micro-minerals. Macro minerals are needed in amounts of more than 100mg a day, while micro-minerals are needed in much smaller quantities.
The older we get, the less efficient our bodies become at extracting nutrients from food and absorbing them into the blood. Fresh food, sold in the supermarkets and stored in chilled containers, can travel hundreds or even thousands of miles and take several days to get to and from distribution centres.
Processing also removes most of the nutrients. For example, white flour, white rice and refined white sugar contain virtually no vitamins at all and only ten percent of the minerals they originally had. Manufacturers compensate by adding back some of the nutrients removed or destroyed, but not all.
