Where Do I Get My Vitamins From?

Vitamins are always best from natural sources like foods. However, which foods give you the most nutrition?

Unless you've had a blood test at the doctor's, it is hard to know which vitamins and minerals your body could be lacking. To make it easy, we have listed the essential ones below. As long as you either include them in your diet or take a supplement in combination with daily exercise, your body will function properly and feel its best.

Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, and helps our vision and immunity work properly. Dairy products are abundant in vitamin A, as are chicken, fish, eggs, and beef liver.

Vitamin B12 assists the body's metabolism and contributes to normal red blood cell formation. Also, our nervous systems need it to function normally. Our bodies don't produce it, and therefore it needs to be consumed regularly to prevent anaemia. Meat, eggs, dairy products and poultry are good sources of B12, which is why vegans need to be careful to get the vitamin from alternate sources, such as wholegrain cereals, broccoli, asparagus, bananas, potatoes, nuts, figs and dates.

Sunlight helps our bodies produce Vitamin D on its own, but in months with less sun, it can be low in our bodies. It helps the body absorb calcium, so it's crucial to bone and tooth growth, as well as to immunity and cell growth. There are very few naturally occurring dietary sources of vitamin D. Cod liver oil and oily fish are very rich natural sources of it. We usually tend to consume this vitamin via fortified foods such as milk, yoghurt, orange juice and breakfast cereals.

Vitamin B12 is water-soluble vitamin. Overcooking foods containing these vitamins will effectively deplete their vitamin B value.

It's not so easy to monitor how many vitamins we are getting from our diet on a daily basis. For that reason, vitamin supplements can be taken to make sure we're getting the proper amounts of all vitamins our bodies need.
