Vitamin A (also known as retinol) protects the immune system against infection and helps to keep our eyesight in good working order.
Vitamin D regulates the levels of calcium and phosphate we have in our bodies and keeps bones and teeth strong.
Besides vitamins, the body also needs a good supply of minerals in order to ensure wellbeing.
From an early age we have it drummed into us that Calcium builds strong teeth and bones, but it also regulates the muscle contractions that the body makes, including heartbeat, and ensures that the blood clots normally. Finally, Iron helps to make red blood cells, and carry oxygen around the body – vital for the on-going work of the organs.
Fat soluble vitamins are found in fatty foods, such as those containing animal fats, dairy, oily fish and oils and spreads. A lack of vitamin D causes rickets, something that was until recently thought to have been banished from the UK.


Vitamin K is found in green vegetables such as broccoli and spinach, in vegetable oil and cereals. B vitamins include (among others) thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin, pyridoxine (B6) and folic acid. As long as we utilise all of the food groups there is no reason to suppose we are lacking in any essential vitamin or mineral and we probably don't need to take supplements. A lack of vitamin C is responsible for scurvy, and historically was usually found among sailors who didn't eat enough fresh food for months on end.
Iron can be found in liver, meat, beans, nuts, dried fruit and fortified cereal and dark green vegetables.
People who may be deficient in an essential nutrient include women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, children aged 6 months to 5 years and older people aged 65 plus.
If we take too much of a water soluble vitamin in, it is passed out through the body's natural excretions, whereas too much of a fat soluble vitamin kept in storage in the body can cause health problems such as fatty liver disease or diabetes.


Vitamin C can be found in oranges and orange juice, strawberries, blackcurrants, broccoli, brussel sprouts and peppers.
As a group of vitamins the B family are responsible for producing and releasing energy and keeping the nervous system, and the skin and eyes, healthy and functioning. Bear in mind that high doses of iron can be fatal, so as with all vitamins and minerals, take supplements in moderation and under the direction of your doctor.
Besides sunlight, Vitamin D can also be found in oily fish, eggs, breakfast cereals and powdered milk. They can be found in a diverse array of food but especially eggs, fortified cereals, nuts, beans and poultry.
