Articles on Vitamins and Minerals

There are certainly indications that vitamins and other micronutrients do more than just prevent deficiency diseases, which is how the medical profession has viewed the science of nutrition to date. Vitamins, together with penicillin, helped create an era of miraculous cures for medical science. Simply by improving the diet to ensure adequate intakes of specific vitamins, such serious deficiency syndromes as scurvy, beriberi, rickets and pellagra have today become quite rare in developed countries. Our immune system is also compromised by certain vitamin deficiencies. Vitamin A deficiency has been found in patients with low numbers of circulating lymphocytes (the immune system which can detect cancer cells). Vitamin C deficiency impairs protein synthesis and all the cells of the immune system operate below par (smoking destroys vitamin C, adding insult to injury). Wound healing is delayed in the absence of sufficient vitamin C. Lack of iron, folic acid, zinc, riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3) and magnesium also significantly depresses our immune defenses. The last three are essential for making antibodies.  For many years, doctors, scientists and governments have been trying to determine the amounts of vitamins and minerals that are needed in the human diet.
