Take your vitamins - a daily dose of happiness

Updated: Aug 12


Let’s talk about two important components of the human body – vitamins and minerals. I’ve often wondered why at a certain age we stopped taking vitamins. If you’re like me, you took vitamins growing up, but somewhere between learning how to ride a bike and experiencing your first kiss you stopped. Then if you’re like me still, somewhere between the time you had your first kiss and your lower back started hurting you started taking vitamins again!

All joking aside I’m a firm believer in including vitamins in your daily health routine. Vitamins and minerals are two main types of nutrients you need to survive as well as keep your body functioning properly. There are 13 essential vitamins – vitamins A, C, D, E, K and B which includes thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, B6, B12, and folate. Each vitamin has a different role in helping the body work properly. Certain vitamins help fight off infection, while others help provide energy and promote heart health. Unless you have a deficiency and need a surplus of a specific vitamin, I recommend taking a daily multi-vitamin. There are plenty multi-vitamins out there so be sure to do your research and choose the best one for you.

Like vitamins, minerals assist with keeping your body functioning properly. Minerals are elements which can be found in the earth. There are several minerals the body needs. Some such as iodine and fluoride are needed in small amounts while others such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium are needed larger amounts. Eating a well-balanced diet will help your body maintain the minerals it needs. Additionally, routinely getting your blood tested for anomalies once a year is a good practice. Remember, it’s your health and no one else’s. It’s your responsibility what is required to live a healthy life! If you’re starting our on your wellness journey schedule a consultation to discuss the best approach! Until next time – Coach!
