Hi, I'm Ashleigh Gass, strength and conditioning specialist with Vitamins and minerals play so many roles in our body, it's impossible to list them all. But vitamins and minerals really form part of the foundation of good health. They help all of our cells regenerate. When cells regenerate properly, they help with our skeletal system, our muscular system, and how our brain functions.

Now, for vegetarians, this is going to be a bit of a challenge because when someone turns to a vegetarian lifestyle, very often symptoms of fatigue and lethargy can be close behind. So if you are going more to a vegetarian lifestyle, make sure that you include a lot of green, leafy vegetables and good sources of grains like quinoa so that you're not cutting out or really exposing yourself to vitamin B12 deficiency, which, again, is a lot more common in vegetarians than in meat eaters.
