By the time the first vitamins were discovered in 1908, it was clear that we humans cannot live on the energy we get from food alone. Alongside, we also need a regular, sufficient supply of 13 other vitamins, and more.
Minerals are natural, inorganic substances that are essential for us humans. Whether we’re growing, dancing or digesting - nothing works without them. Among other things, minerals are the building blocks that make up bones, teeth, hair and nails. They also form the basis for fluid balance, nerve excitation and hormonal processes.
Trace elements are chemical elements that occur in the human body in tiny amounts, i.e. traces. Some of the most well-known include zinc, iron, selenium and silicon, all of which also count as essential trace elements.
Our gut is a hive of activity: The intestinal flora, also known as the microbiome, is busy colonising it. The intestinal flora is made up of round 100,000 billion germs from more than 400 different species, and weighs over a kilogram! Lactobacteria and bifidobacteria are particularly abundant.
Water and protein are substances without which no living being can exist. Amino acids are the smallest building blocks of proteins. Only 20 amino acids are enough for our body to build all of its own protein structures.
