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.
