In our MensMaxSuppliments stores we take pride in being an ‘all in one’ kind of a store where our clients can find everything under one roof if not all that they need. Here we first of all start by defining what a Vitamin is. A vitamin we can say is an essential compound of organic molecules that cannot be synthesized in the body.
This therefore means that it is acquired through the diet that the person takes. In our store of Vitamins minerals in Kenya we can say that they are to be taken in sufficiently small amounts.
Additionally its worth stating here that Vitamins are beneficial in many metabolic processes of the body. You can purchase Vitamins online. It is safe to take them. Vitamins help us to live better. They repair cellular damage. Vitamins support the nervous system. You should take them in the right quantity.
People ask whether Vitamins are core in the body. The answer to such questions will be found as we look at each and every Vitamin type and its work in the human body.Additionally its good to consult your doctor. This is because of correct prescription. A doctor will also advise you on what you lack.
To kick the ball rolling, i need to state that we have two main types of vitamins namely; fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamins A, D, E, and K) and water-soluble vitamins (Vitamins B and C). Fat soluble Vitamins are also called carotenoids because they can be converted by the body into retinol. As the names suggest fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the fatty tissues .And they can they can also be stored in the body for longer periods of time to be consumed later.
On the other hand water-soluble vitamins are different because they cannot be stored in the body. Meaning therefore that they are excreted out in the urine by the excretory system and need to be taken regularly. Additionally its good to consult your doctor. This is because of correct prescription. A doctor will also advise you on what you lack.
Vitamin A is important for a better eyesight and also improves our immune system. Additionally it promotes a healthy skin and maintains different organs not forgetting muscle tissues growing healthy and also healthy reproductive system.

Its not only Vitamins that the body needs. We also have minerals which are chemical elements required by living organisms.

Vitamins Minerals In Kenya are categorized in two;
Macrominerals include elements such as Calcium, Phosophorous, Potassium, Magnesium, Salt(sodium chloride)
All the above elements must be in constant supply in the body because their lack brings life threatening complications.
–Lack of Calcium results in low bone mineral density, rickets, osteomalacia and osteoporosis.
–Deficiency of Phosphorous though very rare is always a threat to premature infants, those who use antacids, alcoholics, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus and refeeding syndrome.
-Low levels of potassium in the body though not a result of insufficient dietary intake but mostly caused by protein wasting conditions and also diuretics that can cause excessive loss of potassium in the urine is dangerous. Low blood potassium can result in cardiac arrest
–Lack of Magnesium in the body is rare because of abundance of magnesium in foods. Those with gastrointestinal disorders, kidney disorders, and alcoholism are at a high risk of deficiency.
–Salt (Sodium Chloride) deficiency in the body does not result from low dietary intake. It typically results from increased fluid retention. One may notice nausea, vomiting, headache, cramps, fatigue, and disorientation
Take mostly in foods rich in Iron with Vitamin C that enhances absorption. They include Iron, Zinc, Copper, Chromium, Fluoride, Iodine, Selenium, Manganese and Molybdenum.
