Nutrients Database

A big database of all the nutrients our bodies need to function properly. Vitamins, Minerals, Trace Elements, Amino Acids.

Our content writers are working hard to complete all the articles that will be linked from this page. The content for Minerals and amino-acids is being written as we speak. Whenever a new article is live, we will link to it from this page.

Vitamins

Vitamins are organic chemical compounds that are essential for normal growth and maintenance of our body. However, as our bodies cannot synthesize them, we get them from our food.

Minerals

Minerals and trace minerals are specific inorganic chemical elements, the presence of which in very small quantities is essential to organisms.

The difference between trace elements and minerals is that our body needs the former in even smaller quantities.
