Vitamin D is often called the sunshine vitamin - but despite our sunny climate in Australia, around 1/3 of Aussies are deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential to regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, to facilitate normal immune system function and supporting normal growth and development of bones and teeth.
Want to avoid scurvy?! Vitamin C can’t be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day. Vitamin C protects cells, maintains healthy skin, helps to absorb iron, supports the immune system, and maintains cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Almost 99% of the body’s calcium is found in the bones. There, it combines with other minerals to give your bones strength and structure. Some calcium is also required for heart, muscle, blood and nerve function. If you don’t get enough calcium in your diet, your body takes it from your bones which affects bone density and increases the risk of osteoporosis.
Zinc is an essential mineral delivering an amazing 16 health benefits - but your body cannot make it on its own! Zinc aids in metabolism, digestion, nerve function and many other processes. In addition, it’s critical for the development and function of immune cells.
Macronutrients are the three main nutrients that make up our food.
