What is the difference between vitamins and minerals?
Vitamins are organic substances, which means that they are obtained from living organisms: animals, plants or substances that were once alive. Minerals are, unlike vitamins, inorganic substances. All vitamins are identified as key nutrients: the body cannot produce them and so they must be obtained through diet; minerals are similarly identified as key nutrients. Vitamins and minerals are equally essential for the healthy functioning of the body. Unlike minerals, vitamins are easily destroyed by heat, light, long storage, cooking and other food preparation processes.
