Vitamin Supplements Q&A

What are vitamin supplements?

Vitamin supplements are compounds you can take to make sure you get all the nutrients you need. While many of the foods you eat are rich in vitamins, your diet may be imbalanced or you might have trouble absorbing particular vitamins in adequate amounts. 

Vitamins belong to a category of nutrients called micronutrients, which your body needs in small quantities to continue working efficiently. They help with growth and development, nerve function, energy, metabolism, and other processes. 

When you have a vitamin imbalance, you might experience a wide range of symptoms. Taking vitamin supplements is one way to help with an imbalance or to ensure you don’t experience one.

Who benefits from taking vitamin supplements?

The short answer is anyone can benefit from taking vitamin supplements. Whether you’re familiar with the nutrient content of your diet or not, vitamin supplements guarantee you get what you need. You might be interested in vitamin supplements if you have dietary restrictions that prevent you from eating specific foods. 

Another reason to consider taking vitamins is if you experience symptoms of a deficiency. These can include:

  • Brittle hair and nails
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Shaking or unsteadiness
  • Numbness or tingling in your hands or feet

You can take vitamin supplements orally to address these issues after discussing them with the team at The Fountain of You, Mind & Body. If you’d rather not swallow a pill or capsule, vitamin deficiencies are also treatable with intravenous (IV) therapy.

Which vitamin supplements might I need?

There are many vitamin supplements that you can purchase to meet your needs and supplement your wellness care at The Fountain of You, Mind & Body. The team may ask questions about your health and wellness as well as inquiries about your eating habits and diet. 

Depending on your personal needs, the team might suggest taking vitamin supplements that contain:

Fat soluble vitamins

Fat soluble vitamins are similar to oil — instead of dissolving in water, they separate from it. These include vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Water soluble vitamins

Most vitamins are water soluble, which means they dissolve when placed into water. This includes all of the B vitamins (including folate, niacin, and biotin) as well as vitamin C. A deficiency of water soluble vitamins can cause significant issues for your health.
