Scientific study categorize these items in various ways, according to their function. These categories include:

Minerals

These are relatively simple elements or naturally occurring compounds (combinations of elements). Our body needs these minerals in order to survive, and is unable to internally manufacture them. They originate in the soil. We need to absorb them by consuming plant or animal products, or through our water.

The Main Minerals are: Calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and magnesium.

Trace element minerals include:  Iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, iodine, and selenium

Antioxidants

Our bodies are made of complex cells. Any damage to these cells breaks down the very substance that we are made from. Oxidization is one form of cell damage; the molecules that the cell is built from lose an electron and acquire a charge. This loss of an electron makes it easy for them to bond with other substances. The process is rather like metal rusting. We don’t want our bodies rusting like metal.

Antioxidants are though to prevent, or at least reduce, this oxidation process. The molecules and cells are then able to react and function in a healthy way.

Vitamin

These are organic compounds that are needed in small amounts but which cannot be synthesised by the body. They are a necessary part of the diet.

Vitamins were not isolated till 19th and 20th century, and were not available as supplements until the 1930s. But as a healthy diet contains all the vitamins needed so artificial sources of vitamins are not necessary. Food sources appear to be a better way to consume vitamins than any supplementation.
