www.vitaminstore1.com
For an English speaking vitamin supplier that delivers to wherever you are in Europe.

Nutritional shortages are now commonly lurking in our rapidly growing consumerism world. Intensive farming culture has hit the western farmlands gradually. By refining their products they lose a lot of important nutrients. With the use of pesticides and the rise of fast food culture, we'd rather not think about nutrition. Even during the preparation of an extensive, varied and fresh food dish vitamins and minerals are often lost because they dissolve in the boiling water or by heating. In short, a varied diet gives no guarantee for the optimum amount of nutrients the body needs.
