Are you taking Vitamin C to protect your immune system?

Many of us are worried about getting enough Vitamin C to keep our immunities in check. However, Vitamin B Complex is just as important to healthy cell growth and development. Those healthy cells go to battle every day to protect us against outside intruders that damage our cells.

Vitamin B1: It helps fuel the body’s energy, converting blood sugar to energy. B1 can be found in wheat germ, oysters and brewer’s yeast.
Vitamin B2: B2 helps with the health of the digestive tract (which ‘decides’ which nutrients to absorb and which to dispose of) and nervous system as well as promoting vibrant hair and nails.
Vitamin B3: This B Vitamin aids in digestion and produces good cholesterol. Fish, liver, chicken, potatoes, peanuts, beans, and fortified cereals are abundant in B3.
Vitamin B5: B5 breaks down protein, carbohydrates and fats and is in eggs, chicken, potatoes, peas, avocados, oranges, tomatoes and oats.
Vitamin B6: This pivotal vitamin helps maintain a healthy nervous system. Soy products, brown rice, oatmeal, strawberries, bananas, broccoli, asparagus, organ meats and watermelon are all rich in B6.
Vitamin B7: B7 is responsible for synthesizing glycogen, tissue maintenance and visibly healthy skin. Liver, fish, egg yolks, milk, oats, nuts, spinach, cauliflower and broccoli offer this vitamin.
Vitamin B9: This is our main source of folic acid. This B Vitamin is imperative to healthy growth and maintenance of our bodies. Folic Acid is crucial to a developing fetus and is found in nuts, beans, green leafy vegetables, liver, citrus fruits, beets and cantaloupe.
Vitamin B12: B12 is vital in red blood cell production. Red Blood cells carry the oxygen needed for our bodies to function properly. Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and cheese are great sources of vitamin B12. Since the sources of these vitamins are animal based, vegetarians may need a supplement to adequately meet the daily intake recommendation of this vitamin.
