Vitamin supplements: when to take which vitamins?

Everyone knows that we need vitamin supplements and other vital substances to keep us well. One possibility is to take the necessary substances through food. Vitamin capsules can be a valuable supplement. Instead of taking several ready-made preparations, a personalized supply of vital substances is particularly promising.

How vitamin supplements can boost your well-being and vitality
Health and vitality are important. Many people find out just how important they are when health problems arise that can upset their daily lives a little or a lot. To prevent this from happening, a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, pulses and wholegrain products, as well as sufficient exercise and a good night's sleep are essential. At least that's the theory, because in practice many people have problems implementing their lofty resolutions in everyday life.

Everyday life is often characterized by stress and many people generally have too little time - for example to cook, exercise and get enough sleep. This can make an all-round healthy lifestyle very difficult. In such cases, vitamin supplements can help. With special dietary supplements, you provide your body with everything it needs. At the same time, you can prevent stress and health problems if you make sure you get enough vitamins and minerals.

Even with a healthy diet, it can be useful to consume certain vital substances to support the body to function optimally. This cannot and should not be a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, but it can be a useful addition to your diet.

Vitamins and minerals are essential for good health. They are organic molecules and essential micronutrients that are important for the metabolism. Vitamins and minerals are elementary building blocks of the body, which it often cannot produce itself. They must therefore be supplied - through food or vitamin capsules.

There are a large number of vitamins and minerals that have different functions in the body and should therefore all be taken in sufficient quantities. Nutrients can, for example, provide energy, strengthen the immune system or are involved in the formation of cells, blood cells, bones and teeth. The list of vitamins is long:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (niacin)
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B7 (biotin)
  • Vitamin B9 (folic acid)
  • Vitamin B12 (cobalamin)
  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
  • Vitamin D (cholecalciferol)
  • Vitamin E (tocopherol)
  • Vitamin K (phylloquinone and menaquinone)

There are also minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, selenium and iodine. If the body does not have sufficient amounts of certain nutrients available, this can lead to symptoms after a short time or even after a longer period of time. Signs of a nutrient deficiency can include tiredness, lack of concentration, poor immune defense, brittle bones, hair loss, paleness, muscle cramps or apathy. A lack of nutrients can also promote the development of illnesses. It is therefore all the more important to make sure that your body has everything it needs.

Vitamin requirements: How do I find out which vitamins I need?
In order to check whether you are consuming all the essential vitamins and minerals in sufficient quantities, you need to know which nutrients you actually need. Basically, the body needs all the nutrients mentioned. However, depending on your circumstances, your health and your goals, it may make sense to pay particular attention to certain vital nutrients. In certain situations, the need for certain nutrients may also be increased.

It therefore depends on whether there are things that are particularly important to you. Perhaps you want beautiful skin and hair, want to increase your vitality in general, strengthen your bones or boost your body's defenses. Perhaps you often feel tired and listless or want to give your body more energy to perform at its best. You may also want to sleep better, combat stress or support your body with chronic illnesses.

You may also suffer from certain complaints such as digestive problems or want to lose weight. Certain diets such as low carb, keto or vegan diets may also make it necessary to pay more attention to an adequate intake of nutrients. In the case of a vegan diet, this applies to vitamin B12, iron and calcium, for example.

Regardless of your life situation, it is important that you only take supplements that you can really benefit from. Substances with which your body is already well supplied are excreted unused and, in the worst case, can even harm the body. With Indyvit, you can calculate exactly what your body really needs and support your body in a targeted manner.

What are the benefits of Indyvit's vitamin supplements?
Why should you order personalized vitamin supplements from Indyvit when you can buy vitamin capsules in any supermarket? Products from the supermarket are often very generic. They usually combine different substances, whereby personalization is of course not possible. What's more, in many cases they contain things that may not mean anything to you or that you would rather do without - for example fillers, stabilizers, binders, colourings and coating agents.

Using ready-made food supplements from the supermarket can mean having to take several supplements every day - along with any questionable additives. Wouldn't it make more sense to take just one vital substance capsulethat contains all the substances your body needs? This is exactly what Indyvit's personalized nutritional supplements offer you. Manufactured in Switzerland, Indyvit food supplements stand for the highest quality and safety.

With Indyvit, you alone decide which ingredients your vitamin capsules should contain. So you know exactly what you are getting and retain full control. You can decide on the color, label and taste yourself. Simply try out our online analysis directly - in expert mode or with our 3-minute quiz.
