All our lives, from when we are little children to forever, all we hear about is eating healthy. Eat your veggies, they would say, they’ll make you grow tall and strong. When we are grown and have our own children we begin telling our children the same thing. What is it with all these vitamins? So, I’ve decided that I will do a little research and we’ll get the nitty gritty on some ‘nutritious’ stuff.
Who: Vitamin D3
Why: It aids in maintaining normal blood levels calcium and phosphorus, helps to prevent osteoporosis and build bone density, elevates moods, fights depression, fights the onset of many viruses (including flu), could reduce the risk of cancer
How: Avoid D3 by staying away from the sun, as you get older don’t take it as a vitamin supplement since your body doesn’t take in as much naturally
Why: Iron transfers oxygen throughout the body by attaching itself to hemoglobin, helps to prevent anemia
How: Avoid Iron by staying away from iron rich foods such as beef liver, lean meats, salmon, iron-fortified breakfast cereals, tofu, soybeans, dried beans, oatmeal, pumpkin and sesame seeds, spinach and enriched breads, rice and pasta. Reduce tea and coffee beverages as they prevent intake of iron.
Who: Vitamin C
Why: Avoid it to obtain scaly skin, nosebleeds, inflammation of the gums, and painful joints. Also, vitamin C helps to reduce cancer. Who would want that???
How: Avoid produce, especially fresh! Particularly broccoli, strawberries, canteloupe, oranges, tomatoes, greens, sweet potatoes, or okra.
Who: Vitamin B12
Why: Avoid it to slow the production of DNA as well as to interfere with gastrointestinal health by improving it, and helping the development of the brain and nervous system.
How: Avoid fish, meat, eggs, dairy products, especially beef liver and clams! Also, read labels as they are added to a lot of cereals and other nutritional foods.
Okay, so we have discovered that there are reasons everyone keeps pushing people to eat healthy. The other day my husband read an article about dietary suggestions from 200 years ago. Turns out, the Atkins diet is not his own and they tried to tell us eating a ton of carbs would make us all fat. Go figure that we wouldn’t listen. Seems that is just how wonderful we are, that we never listen.
Hopefully, you get the point of this post. Vitamins and eating right is very important. They make a difference, whether you can see it or you don’t. While the most natural is by getting them the way God made but with today’s lifestyles that isn’t always easy. So, we have vitamin supplements.
