Do you know your vitamin ABCs?
Vitamins and minerals are the cornerstones to having a healthy and happy life. Kuranda Wholefoods pack our entire product range with tons of products that can maximise your daily vitamin counts to the levels you need!
However, a lot of people don’t understand the full benefits acquired from each specific Vitamin. So, we thought we would put together a piece on all the health benefits associated with vitamin A, B and C.
Vitamin A is an essential Vitamin for development and growth, cell recognition and most importantly, immune function. Like most vitamins, vitamin A is found in different forms through fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. If you have a dearth of vitamin A in your system you may be at higher risk of infections, dry skin and fertility issues. However, if you can insert a healthy amount of vitamin A into your diet you will reap the benefits! These include a lower risk of cancer and clearer, healthier skin. Beware, however, too much vitamin A can also be just as dangerous as not having enough to be cautious.
Vitamin B is made of 8 different types of distinct vitamins and each one has a specific role in keeping us healthy! Vitamin B is not stored in the body so as a result it must be restored daily. Vitamin B plays a large role in healthy brain function and development as well as allowing the human body to store oxygen. Vitamin B1 can be found in cereal, berries, nuts and sunflower seeds and was one of the first vitamins to be discovered. Other awesome benefits of vitamin B include lowering the risk of heart disease, balancing hormonal changes in women and helping with the formation of red blood cells.
Vitamin C is considered the Mr or Mrs fantastic of fighting off cold and flu season. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can help us in many other ways than just prevent a stuffed nose. Vitamin C is essential for healthy eyes, protecting against radical damage from UV light. It is also a natural antihistamine which makes it a happy helper when allergy season comes around and the hay fever kicks in! If you can get the correct amount of vitamin c into your body, you can reap the benefits of better joint flexibility and healthy gums! Many fruits are extremely high in vitamin C such as oranges, mangoes and kiwi fruit!
We hope some of these vitamin A, B and C fun facts are useful in helping you understand what these vitamins do and where some awesome sources of these vitamins can be found! Many of Kuranda Wholefoods products are perfect for getting those extra vitamins into your diet to make you feel that little bit better each day.
