Introducing Vitamins in Motion

Vitamins and minerals - micronutrients - play a important role throughout the lifecycle, and are essential for health and wellbeing in every stage of human life: from pregnancy, through infancy and childhood, into adulthood and old age. Our bodies need vitamins - whether through the diet, vitamin supplementation or fortified foods - to grow, function, stay healthy and prevent disease.

Vitamins in Motion is an initiative to raise awareness and advocate for increased access to the essential vitamins all people need to be healthy and well-nourished. Vitamins in Motion aims to highlight the vital role vitamins play in nutrition and health, and calls for finding and implementing scalable, cost-effective solutions to address the world's vitamin deficiencies. This site provides you with important information, useful tools, latest scientific publications and ground-breaking books, all around micronutrients. Join us in setting Vitamins into Motion!
