A guide to Micronutrients – Huel Nutrition


Today we are going to talk about Vitamins
and minerals or Micronutrients. Now there are a large number of vitamins and
minerals, which have functions in the body and a good number of them are essential. So we have to make sure that we have a good
intake of all the essential ones every day. Vitamins are organic substances that have
a range of different functions in the body, for instance Vitamin A is involved in night
vision, the B vitamins are involved in a number of things, some of them being acting as cofactors
for enzymes. Vitamin C is for a healthy immune system and
a number of other roles. Vitamin D actually has hormone like functions,
it helps the calcification of bone and has a number of other functions as well, Vitamin E
is a very potent antioxidant that we need, its essential and Vitamin K is involved in
blood clotting, amongst other things. The different minerals have a range of different
functions as well, some of the macrominerals which are calcium, phosphorous and the magnesium
are very much involved in the structure again, amongst other functions. Then we’ve got the trace elements, like Iron,
Zinc, Manganese, Molybdenum, Copper, I could go on and name them all and they all have
a range of different functions. We need to get all the essential ones in our
diet everyday for good health. If we were to go a long time with out a good
intake of the minerals that could have major health consequences and possibly severe deficiency
leading to death. Requirements for each micronutrient varies
greatly considerably between different people. Some men require more than ladies and the
other way round for things like iron, where ladies require more. Huel contains all the essential Vitamins and
Minerals that we need for good health. It also contains some of the non essential
ones that we’ve put in because we feel there are health benefits from having an adequate
intake of a vitamin. For example the B vitamin Choline. Huel also contains higher than the recommended
daily amount of some of the micronutirents because we feel there will be health benefits
from putting more in. For instance Vitamin D, contains a lot higher
level of vitamin than the recommended daily amounts because there health benefits of that,
that you’ve perhaps read in recent research and also vitamin c, there are health benefits
to more than that and also it can help the absorption of some other micornutrients. If you’d like to read more about micronutirents
