What does a diet rich in vitamins and minerals look like?

A balanced, varied, wholefood diet should meet the needs of healthy humans with regard to all vitamins, minerals and other bio factors. The daily diet should include a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain products and legumes. In addition, low-fat dairy products, fish, lean meat and high-quality vegetable oils should be a regular part of the menu.

It should be noted that the body’s biofactor needs can increase considerably due to diseases, use of medication, absorption disturbances in the gastrointestinal tract (resorption problems) or stress, pregnancy, nursing and growth. In these cases even a balanced diet can reach its limits and a deficiency can be produced.
