The Alphabet Vitamins

So what's the deal with all these vitamins anyway? Here's a look at what I like to call the "alphabet" vitamins. 

Vitamin A
This vitamin is great for improving vision, bone health, teeth/hair/nail health and protects against disease. Some of the very best sources of beta carotene are carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, mangoes, papayas, peaches and cantaloupe. 

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 has been called the "mighty vite" because of all the functions it performs. It is estimated that Vitamin B6 is involved with more than 101 chemical reactions that occur in our bodies.
Vitamin B6 helps us by aiding in the manufacturing of amino acids.Vitamin B6 helps our bodies to produce what's called Lymphocytes. These are white blood cells that are called out to attack foreign invaders in our bodies called antigens. It also aids in mental health. It is best to take as a supplement. 

Vitamin B12 helps regulate the nervous system, maintaining a healthy digestive system, and hair/nail/teeth health. It also aids in healing cancer. It is essential for our health. Take a daily supplement, especially as a vegetarian, as it's the only vitamin we can't get through our food. Bee products, however, do contain a high amount of B12. Just make sure you get raw honey, local bee pollen, and high quality Royal Jelly. I recommend The Raw Food world for your Royal Jelly. 

Vitamin C
This vitamin is a great healer. It's fantastic for colds, healing wounds, cancer prevention, heart health and diabetes. The daily requirement of Vitamin C can be acquired by consuming citrus fruits like oranges, lemons and grapefruits and other fruits like strawberries or kiwifruit.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D provides calcium balance in the body that prevents osteoporosis or arthritis. Vitamin D aids in fighting depression, skin health and cardiovascular strength. The best way to get Vitamin D is to hang out in the sun. 

Vitamin E
Vitamin E protects the skin from free radicals, it has anti-aging elements and protects the skin from the sun. Vitamin E can heal skin conditions and wounds. This is great used topically for skin care.
