Shouldn’t we be getting all the vitamins we need from foods only? This is a common question we ask ourselves. Well, in a perfect world, yes, we should. But what’s the reality?
Healthy, vitamin-rich foods should be the basis of our diets, but because we are now a time-poor nation, this may not always be possible. However, eating a wide variety of vegetables and fruits regularly can make a great difference to our health and well-being.
Make sure you incorporate broccoli, red pepper, sprouts and papaya (for vitamin C), almonds, sunflower seeds, and peanut butter (for vitamin E) and orange fruit and vegetables (for beta-carotene) into your diet.
Additionally, try chicken liver, which is a good protein source and is naturally rich in vitamins A, B2, B3, B5, B9, B12, and iron and selenium.
