your liver for future use. Fat soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D, E and K. Unlike fat-soluble vitamins,


water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body so you need to consume them every day. If you have too many water-soluble vitamins, your body will get rid of them when you urinate. Mainly found in fruits, vegetables and grains, water-soluble vitamins can be destroyed through cooking preparation (e.g., in the water in which we boil our vegetables). As such, to keep hold of as many vitamins as possible, grilling or steaming foods is often more benefi cial than boiling. Some of the most important water-soluble vitamins include


vitamins C, B and folic acid.


Magnifi cent Minerals Your body needs minerals to build


strong bones and teeth, control bodily fl uids inside and outside cells and to turn the food you eat into energy. Cereals, meat, fi sh, milk, dairy products, fruits, vegetables and nuts are all rich sources of minerals. Calcium and iron are two of the most important minerals to include in our diets. Research indicates that calcium helps lower high blood pressure and protect against colon and breast cancer, however, more than 1500mg per day may result in stomach cramps or diarrhoea. The NHS recommends a healthy serving of 700mg of calcium per day from foods including dairy products, leafy


greens like broccoli, tofu and nuts.
