Here is the format for the vitamin posts:
Vitamin letter/Mineral Name:
Compound Name: Many vitamins not only have a letter, they have a compound name as well. This will be listed here. In cases where there is more than one compound, there will be links to the other profiles that highlight those.
History: How the vitamin was discovered.
Why Do You Need It? A list of the benefits of the vitamin/mineral
RDA: This will be the legal minimum daily allowance of the vitamin/mineral. What will be listed here is not the maximum.
Side Effects: If there are any effects of taking too much of the vitamin/mineral, it will be listed here.
Interactions: If the vitamin/mineral interacts with any drugs or substances, it will be listed here.
Are You Deficient? A list of symptoms of a possible deficiency. Please see a doctor to make sure, and do your own homework on this.
Where Do I Find It? List of links to what foods give you the vitamin/mineral. Why links? Because listing them all would make a whole other post.
Supplement pricing: If you need to buy a supplement, this will let you know about how much to expect to pay for a good quality supplement.
Sources for the post: All the books and links that I used to make the posts.
