What are vitamins, minerals and omega 3 for?

Multivitamins are important in human nutrition because they provide essential vitamins and minerals that are crucial for maintaining various biological functions in the body. Vitamins and minerals serve as cofactors for enzymes and play a key role in metabolic processes, the immune system, bone health, growth and development, among many other functions.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also essential in the human diet because they are essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own. They play a key role in maintaining heart health, reducing inflammation, supporting brain and nervous system development, and have a potential positive impact on mental health.

Foods rich in vitamins and minerals include fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, meat, fish, and dairy products. A varied diet that includes different foods ensures intake of different vitamins and minerals.

Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, nuts (especially flaxseeds and walnuts), and flaxseed oil and cod liver oil.

Omega-3 fatty acids have a positive effect on the treatment of depression. Research has shown that EPA, one type of omega-3 fatty acid, can reduce symptoms of depression and improve response to antidepressants.

Vitamins and minerals have different roles in the body:

  • Vitamins, such as vitamin C and vitamin D, play a key role in the immune system and maintaining healthy skin.
  • Minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, are important for bone and muscle health.

Omega-3 fatty acids , such as EPA and DHA, have multiple roles in the body:

  • They help maintain a normal heart rhythm and reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • They play a key role in the development of the brain and nervous system.
  • They have anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce inflammation in the body.

Pumpkin seed oil and hemp seed oil are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids, especially alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Hemp oil also contains other important nutrients such as essential amino acids and antioxidants.

Supporting local healthy food producers can have a number of benefits, including reducing the ecological footprint, boosting the local economy, supporting sustainable agricultural practices and ensuring access to fresh and high-quality food. It can also promote a diverse diet and support the local community.
