Vitamins are essential for our bodies to remain healthy and function properly, with each vitamin targeting different areas of our body. We believe that taking vitamins naturally, as part of a varied and healthy diet, is far better than relying on vitamin supplements and meal replacements. Our bodies need a range of vitamins in order to remain fighting fit and a varied diet is the best way of giving our body what it needs.

As with everything, it is important not to overdo the intake of Vitamins and minerals because having too much can be harmful. This is why we recommend you include our superfoods in a balanced diet rather than take supplements (unless prescribed by your doctor for certain medical reasons).

Creative Nature super foods offer a rich source of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need and can be easily included into your daily diets without disrupting or changing any existing dietary regimes that you follow. We have compiled a fairly comprehensive table to show you the benefits of each Vitamin and mineral and which products you can find them in. We have shown authorised claims from the European Commission and unauthorised claims found online and from Creative Nature customers, but recommend you consult a doctor if seeking treatment for existing ailments or diseases. We are not claiming that by using Creative Nature products, you will automatically benefit from all of these health claims, we are merely showing the benefits of Vitamins and Minerals and providing you with an example of natural foods you can find them in.
