Vitamins and minerals

Most people can obtain their daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals from their diet. The chart on these pages offers a brief list of nutritional requirements and the foods that provide them.

Health Canada makes general recommendations for vitamin and mineral supplementation for people in good health at various ages. When choosing a vitamin or mineral supplement, it is important to ensure the daily dose remains in a safe range. If specific health concerns are a factor, be sure to consult with your doctor and/or pharmacist prior to starting your supplements. Remember that medications or health conditions can interfere with how your body is absorbing and using its vitamins.
