Vitamins, minerals, cofactors and antioxidants are all essential compounds that work synergistically in the body to maintain health. Some of these compounds are made endogenously by the body, while others are made exogenously and need to be obtained through our diets. Nutrient deficiencies occur when there is a net loss of these essential compounds. Some factors contributing to this are chronic illness, poor eating habits, poor soil nutrient status and long-term conventional medication usage.
