Vitamins & Minerals Guide
You have probably heard of macros by now and maybe you already track them – but how about your micros?
Micronutrient intake (or “micros”) can be discussed as the purpose of including rich color fruits and vegetables to your diet. By simply having your daily fruits and vegetables, you can lower your risk for vitamin deficiencies.
No matter the goal, your diet should be focused around fruits and vegetables, rich in variety and color. This will ensure that your body is running on all cylinders and your health stays steady. It is common to see people that are getting shredded by eating no fruits or veggies, but this is not a route that we advise. Just think, by keeping this intake high, you will be able to feel and perform your best. Feel your best, perform your best, and reach your goals that much faster.
Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients— they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy and repair cellular damage.
Vitamins help your body grow and work the way it should. There are 13 vitamins and it can get a little confusing – so we created a spreadsheet for you to see each vitamin, learn the recommended daily amount (RDA), understanding what sources you can get that vitamin from AND the function of each of those vitamins.
Minerals also help your body function and include electrolytes that you need to keep your body running optimally – so no worries, there is also a spreadsheet including all the same information for minerals as well!
