Eating Whole Foods to Nourish your Body Naturally
How Eating your Vitamins Feeds your Body
The best way to receive your vitamins on a daily basis is through whole, organic foods, raised in soil that is fully nourished. However, nowadays, it’s not so easy finding foods that are raised ethically and in such an opportune environment. For that reason, I often recommend vitamin supplements as part of my treatment plans for my patients, when needed.
Do your best when choosing your nutritious foods and a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that make the body functionally strong and able to ward off disease.
Here’s a quick rundown of key nutrients that are readily available in everyday foods: Vitamin C, is an antioxidant found in foods such as kale, spinach, and oranges. It is necessary for healthy tissue growth, repair, and development, as well as skin, health. Vitamin C also plays an important role in healing wounds, repairing cartilage, and supporting healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D is essential for maintaining a strong immune system, and it is especially helpful in the prevention of conditions such as lupus, arthritis, cancer, and coronary heart disease. Believe it or not, the best source of vitamin D is direct sunlight – good reason to spend more time enjoying the outdoors. A variety of foods are high in vitamin D, too, including fish like salmon, tuna, trout and mackerel, orange juice and cereal, and egg yolks. Vitamin B is a water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for brain and nervous system health and for healthy blood, and its benefits also include boosting metabolism and reducing the risk of stroke, depression and anemia. Food sources for vitamin B include nutritional yeast, fermented foods, eggs and fish.
And of course, above all, when you body is lacking in these nutrients and you need a quick yet hefty boost of vitamins, schedule your appointment for a MEGA IV™ , to fortify your tissues and blood instantly.
