Our bodies require essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to survive and thrive. Most of us don’t get these vitamins and minerals through our diet alone. Think about it, are you eating fortified wheat and grains, 5 servings of fruits and veggies, and lean proteins every day? Most of us aren’t!

Around the holiday season, you know you’ve had one too much eggnog at the holiday party. And, we’ve all gone on that binge-eating spree after a long night of drinking with friends. So, even if our diets are fairly clean 80 to 90% of the time, we need some help in the form of vitamins and mineral supplements. You aren’t alone if you can’t remember the last time you ate zucchini spirals (or don’t even know how to spell the veggie), so let’s cover some of the best vitamins you need to add to your diet.
