We all need vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium, and Vitamin C for our bodies to function efficiently. And for this, our diet should include a lot of veggies, fruits, whole grains, proteins, and good fats. But not everyone can eat this healthful meal regularly which leads to their body not meeting the nutritional requirements.
A person’s body cannot produce everything that is required to function effectively. Dietary sources are required to fulfil this need. The nutrients are divided into 2 parts, micronutrients and macronutrients.
What are micro and macronutrients?
Micronutrients are required in small doses like vitamins and minerals while macronutrients are needed in larger doses like carbohydrates, water, protein, and fats.
As our age progresses, our body requirements change. Also, it differs based on lifestyle and gender.
What determines your body’s need for vitamins?
Men and women
Like men have a heavier body frame in terms of height and weight, their need for calories is more compared to that of women. However, women have more requirements for vitamins, minerals, and folic acid. The menstrual cycle and childbearing make women more susceptible to weak bones. Thus, making the need for calcium higher for them. Also, with monthly blood loss, women have a high risk of anemia-iron deficiency, making their iron requirement more than that of men. While pregnant, a woman needs more folic acid.3
Babies and toddlers
When a baby is under 6 months, it gets all its vitamins and nutrients through breast milk. But in the 1st year, the baby grows in height and weight and to meet the increased nutritional needs, solid food is introduced post 6 months. For a young child, the food requirement changes due to daily activity.
While old people eat less as they age, it makes it difficult to know if they are getting enough nutrients from their meals. Menopausal women suffer from thinning of bones due to hormonal changes which makes calcium-rich food a must in their diet.
How to get the right amount of nutrients in your body?
To attain the nutrient levels of the body, one needs to consume
