Many different vitamins and minerals are present in food and are required
in small amounts to maintain good health. To ensure we get all the vitamins and minerals we need, it is important to eat a well-balanced, varied diet.
Most of us should meet our vitamin and mineral requirements by eating a healthy, well balanced diet. Certain groups, however, for example the sick, elderly, post-menopausal women, pregnant women or individuals following restrictive diets, may need to take an additional vitamin or mineral supplement. Please consult your doctor for advice.
