5 Essential Nutrients your Body Needs and How you Can Get Them

Posted by Caterina Fonseca on


Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly.  Known for its function in bone strength and health, calcium is also important in smooth muscle contractions, cardiovascular health, and normal nerve conduction. Calcium is important for bone health throughout your life. Diet can be a way to get calcium, but at Natural Vitamin Direct, we offer calcium supplements, which help prevent mineral deficiency disorders in the body. These products are scientifically proven to increase bone density and improve/maintain strong bones and teeth. We carry Webber Naturals Calcium Magnesium, Jamieson Calcium Citrate, Jamieson Calcium Collagen and more!

Vitamin B12                                                           

B12 participates in the metabolism of every cell in the human body. Vitamin B12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin, often highlighted for its role in energy production, red blood cell formation, DNA synthesis and prevention of pernicious anemia. Nowadays, B12 related fatalities are rare, however a ‘sub-clinical’ category of B12 deficiency is on the rise. We have many products which contain B12. These products support the nervous system, help memory and learning, boosts energy, enhances immune function and more!

Folate (Folic acid)                                           

Folate (vitamin B-9) is important in red blood cell formation and for healthy cell growth and function. The synthetic form of folate is folic acid, some research suggests that folate might reduce the risk of various cancers. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is an essential nutrient that helps the body take new cells and helps protect DNA from damage. At Natural Vitamin Direct, we offer many Folate products, such as folic capsules, tablets, soft gels and more!

Vitamin C                                                                   

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a nutrient your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells against the effects of free radical molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation from the sun, X-rays or other sources. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron. Because your body doesn't produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet or, Vitamin C is also available as an oral supplement. We offer Vitamin C products in forms of caplets, powder, gummies, and more!


Magnesium plays many crucial roles in the body, such as supporting muscle and nerve function and energy production. Chronically low levels can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis. Magnesium is a vital mineral that helps prevent the calcification of soft tissue and may be as important as calcium in the prevention of bone loss. Many people don't get enough magnesium in their diets. There are many magnesium-rich foods to obtain this important nutrient. At Natural Vitamin Direct, we offer supplements in forms of tablets, powders to help you receive your daily dosage of magnesium!
