Micronutrients, as opposed to macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat), are comprised of vitamins, minerals, and co-factors which are required in small quantities to ensure normal metabolism, growth, and physical wellbeing.
Vitamins are essential organic nutrients, most of which are not made in the body, or only in insufficient amounts, and usually must be obtained through food. When dietary intake of a vitamin is inadequate, deficiency disorders result. Although vitamins are only present and required in minute quantities, compared to the macronutrients, they are just as vital to health and need to be considered in the context of nutrition quality. Minerals are inorganic nutrients that also play a key role in ensuring health and wellbeing.
