Multivitamins & minerals
Rising in popularity in Singapore, vitamins and minerals are vital nutrients for the body as they perform multiple roles in aiding our bodily function. For instance, they help build bones, heal wounds and boost your immune system. Other types assist in converting food into energy and repairing cellular damage. Vitamins are either water-soluble (requires water for absorption) or fat-soluble( requires fat for absorption and are stored in fat cells).
Minerals are divided into macro (calcium, phosphorus. potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium and sulfur) and micro (iron, iodine, zinc, chromium, selenium, fluoride, molybdenum, copper and manganese) minerals, depensing on the amounts required by our bodies. Playing crucial roles in the body, they are found as ions dissolved in body fluids.
Calcium is an integral nutrient for optimal bone health throughout all stages of your life. In stock now at Vitadeals Singapore, calcium supplements help to boost the supply of calcium in your body in the event your diet is not adequate. It is essential to be aware of how much calcium you need and which type best suits you before taking a particular supplement.
Calcium helps to build and maintain strong bones. Other organs such as your heart, muscles and nerves also rely on calcium to function adequately. Research has also shown that taking vitamin D alongside calcium helps the body better absorb calcium at the same time as helping support normal blood glucose levels and blood pressure.
Not getting the required amount of calcium could lead to weak bones. In children, reaching their full potential of adult height might be hampered. Adults, especially menopausal women and seniors, may experience low bone mass as they age, which could lead to osteoporosis.
