Eating healthy is important for your health, but sometimes with the rapid pace of the world around us it’s hard to keep up. Vitamins are an additional way to get supplements you might have been missing out on. I keep a weekly pill container on my desk so everything is sorted out and ready to go. Putting the container is a spot you’re at everyday is also a great way to stay consistent and remind yourself to take vitamins.
Also known as the “Hair, Skin, Nails” vitamin obviously because it helps you grow and maintain strong hair and nails and healthy skin. Biotin is vitamin B7. It’s addition benefits include helping to maintain healthy metabolism, protects from cognitive decline, helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and supports thyroid function.
Biotin can be found in foods like organ meats, eggs, avocado, cauliflower, berries, fish, legumes and mushrooms.
One of the most known benefits of Vitamin C is its power of fighting off colds and flus. It helps improve weak immune systems. That is just one of its many benefits. Vitamin C also promotes collagen production to improve skin. It reduces risk off stroke and improves physical performance by improving oxygen intake and reducing blood pressure.
Some food containing Vitamin C are guavas, red pepper, kiwi, broccoli, kale, pineapple, cauliflower, peas, and mango, along with oranges (obviously).
10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day is the recommended amount. That can be a considerably high goal for the average person. If you do not have a balanced diet that includes fruits and vegetables, a multivitamin may be beneficial as nutritional insurance. While improving your diet is key, multivitamins are good for filling the gaps of missing supplements in your diet.
Overall, while vitamins are great substitutes, good diet is key to living a healthy life. Vitamins should be taken as a back up, not a first resort.
