Many of us know the benefits vitamins can bring us but with life getting more hectic by the minute it’s becoming all the more necessary and all the more difficult to get your everyday A, B and C vitamin fix.
Try out these few simple tips to help you get your daily vitamin needs and keep your body functioning and looking its best.
Vitamin A is fundamental for the health of your eyes, bones, immune system and reproduction as well as healthy glowing skin. If you don’t have the time or are having difficulty finding a recipe that caters to all your vitamin A needs, just try including yellow and green leafy vegetables such as carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes and squash, as well as yellow fruits such as peaches and melon into your everyday meals.
Vitamin B, especially B6 and B12, plays an essential role your body’s metabolism and improves the functioning of your brain and central nervous system. Vitamin B also aids your body’s vital absorption of proteins: a process that tends to decrease, as we get older.
Try having one cup of plain yoghurt and 1 banana sliced on top of any good cereal in the morning to help you get your daily dose of Vitamin B. You should also try including beans, peanuts, sunflower seeds, beef and whole grains into you daily diet to increase your intake of vitamin B.
Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant that is not only crucial to destroying harmful free radicals, enhancing your immune system, but it also helps to promote the absorption of iron and it is also an indispensible natural acne solutions and energy booster.
Vitamin C can be found in all citrus fruits, strawberries, red and green peppers, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, spinach, kale, and collard greens. However if, like a lot of people, you don’t have the time to prepare the recommended 5 serves of fruit and vegetables a day try taking a supplement.
A good all-rounder supplement such as hairy lemon which is easily dissolved in a cool drink of water, not only contains B-Group vitamins but has added ingredients like Ginseng and Biotin to give you an energy lift as well as filling all daily vitamin C needs.
