The problem is, the body by itself, is unable to naturally manufacture many of them by itself.
The ones that it can produce by itself are usually produced in insufficient amounts, making its primary goal impossible to achieve.
These amounts may seem minute or insignificant but the fact is that not getting the correct amounts will cause problems, quite serious ones too in many cases.
