Where do your vitamins come from?

What exactly is a vitamin, and why do we really need something to help us live? It's a really serious question. Why on earth do we need vitamins to live? While I was going to do this whole thing separately for my vitamins, I think doing the whole thing all together sounds better.
Vitamin: noun any of a group of organic compounds that are essential for normal growth and nutrition and are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body

Why do we need to take vitamins?
The logical answer would be that we get our vitamins from food, therefore we don't really need to take a nasty tasting pill or some kind of gummy pill to give us everything we need. Sadly logic doesn't really play part in giving our body what it needs, and we as humans sometimes won't eat our daily vitamin intake during the day. That's where taking a multivitamin, comes in handy. You don't need to worry that you're not getting the vitamin that you need, it's taken care of.

Why do vitamins taste so bad?
After googling the answer, the reason why your vitamins taste bad is the B vitamins, B vitamins are not the fastest vitamins on the planet. If I was able to I'd take a vitamin without that nasty B vitamin taste, but sadly the truth is that we can't so we're stuck with a multivitamin or a hand full of supplements.

Is there any easy way to take vitamins?
It's going to sound silly but the one thing that makes it easier is to find gummy vitamins. There are many companies that sell gummy vitamins, such as Nutra Kids and Nutrakids vitamin c they taste good, and they're easy to take for both kids and adult. As an adult, take the recommended vitamins for a 12-year-old.

Can you combine certain vitamins with other vitamins?
Most of the time no, you can't if you're taking a multi-vitamin, but to be safe, you should always Google your vitamins. You should Google anything you take with vitamins or any vitamins you take with your medications.

Are there vitamins you can't get from food?
The D vitamins are the vitamins produced by the sun's rays. But if you have an autoimmune problem or a reason why you're not in the sun as often you are able to get vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D, especially vitamin D3 and vitamin K 12 are put together, this help someone have stronger bones and a stronger immune system.

If you're still confused about what vitamins or multivitamins are safe, don't hesitate to ask your pharmacist or your doctor. 

The vitamins pictured were sgiven in exchange for my honest opinion. I did not receive any compensation for this product, nor did getting this product for a reduced price influence my opinion.
