3 Vitamins That You Should Consume Daily


It can be confusing when you start to think about which vitamins are essential for everyday health, and which are a little less important. In truth, they are all important for different aspects of your health, but it is true that we use some a little more than others. So, which should you make sure that you consume? Here are 3 vitamins that you should try to consume on a daily basis.

Vitamin C

You have most likely heard a lot about this popular vitamin. So, why is it so popular and healthy? Vitamin C is a vitamin that supports the immune system. Your immune system serves as your body’s natural defense against foreign bodies. Getting sick? Your immune system kicks into gear and fights off the germs. Without it, as is the case for those with certain autoimmune disorders, you would be sick the majority of the time. So getting a lot of Vitamin C gives this very important system a healthy and much needed boost. To get enough Vitamin C, look for foods like oranges, lemons, limes, kiwi, leafy greens, or buy a supplement.

Vitamin D

This is a little less publicized, but because of the rise in Vitamin D deficiencies, it is becoming more popular. Vitamin D is important for multiple body functions. It is used so much, that without it, numerous negative side effects can occur. When you don’t get enough, you might experience achy bones, depression, fatigue, or other unwanted symptoms. To get Vitamin D, your best bet is to get outside and get some very healthy sunshine. This vitamin is not found in very many foods. To get it from your diet, turn to whole milk, kale, or buy it in supplement form.

Vitamin B

This is another vitamin that we really can’t do without. It has a part in so many body functions. The biggest symptom of a deficiency? Fatigue. When you are not getting enough of this vitamin, especially B12, you are likely to get rundown and confused. It is also important for healthy blood, healthy circulation, healthy bones, and many other parts of the body. To get enough B Vitamin, get a good complex vitamin or eat foods like fish, dairy, and meats.

Eating a healthy and well balanced diet is the best way to ensure that your body is getting the nutrients that it needs. If all else fails, however, make sure that these 3 vitamins are a staple in your diet in order to stay healthy.
