The Importance of Vitamins in Our Meals

VitaminsDo you plan out your meals carefully or do you simply grab what’s convenient like most people, to kill your hunger? The recent trend of ready-to-cook and fast foods has altered our eating habits and while the extremely busy crowd will argue that these ready-to-cook meals are convenient, they are also unhealthy.

Source of Essential Vitamins

Our body needs its dose of essential vitamins and minerals that help it run its functions smoothly. When we eat our vegetables and fruits, take meat and protein in proportion, as well as properly time our meals, it translates into an effective mechanism that helps our body energize, repair and strengthen itself.

Some vitamins, mainly water-soluble vitamins, that include C, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyroxidine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate) and B12 (cobalamin), are flushed out of the system on a regular basis through the urine and need to be replenished. The only vitamin that stays is B12 as it is stored in the liver. The other four essential vitamins for the body are vitamin A, D, E and K.

Supports the Health

Together, these vitamins help replenish the body’s energy reserve, preserve and strengthen our bones, support the digestive system, metabolism and immunity and essentially, help in growth. Any sign of weakness in the body with regard to your hair, bones, nails or skin is due to a shortage of one or more of these vitamins and there’s no wonder today that the occurrence of these signs has become common, due to our unhealthy eating habits. We don’t give our body the diet it needs to strengthen and thus, face problems because of it.

If you want to live a healthy life and have a strong body, starting planning your meals and have a balanced diet that fulfills the body’s requirements of essential vitamins.
