The Best Vitamins & Multivitamins

With the plethora of vitamin supplements that are available it can be challenging to understand what purpose they each serve. In this blog, we’ll explore the main vitamins that your body needs to function properly and some of the best supplements to get you feeling 100%.

Vitamins - learning your ABC’s

The body naturally absorbs a number of vitamins, generally found in natural sources such as fresh fruit and vegetables and even from the sun. Each vitamin serves a purpose for the efficient functionality of your body and being deficient in even just one can make a huge difference to your daily wellbeing.

Vitamin A is important for vision, boosting the immune system and aids with heart, lung and kidney function. Symptoms you may notice if you’re deficient in Vitamin A can be: trouble seeing in low light, irritated eyes, skin irritation and respiratory problems. Natural boosters can be found in meat, poultry, fish and dairy products.

Vitamin B is slightly more complex as there are a number of sub-groups. Vitamin B is commonly considered to be the feel good vitamin as it contributes to energy levels, brain function, muscle development and cell metabolism. There are a range of signs that you may be deficient in a B vitamin such as fatigue, confusion, headaches and heart palpitations. As there are so many types of B vitamins, they are present in many natural foods depending on which you are trying to boost. Generally you will find them in many meats, dairy, fresh fruit and vegetables, and whole grains.

Vitamin C is the supplement doctors have been telling us to take when we’re sick as far back as we can remember - and for good reason. Vitamin C boosts your immune system and protects your body against free radicals. Symptoms of Vitamin C deficiency can be fatigue, lengthy healing processes as well as anemia. As we all know, vitamin C is found in oranges and many other fresh fruits.

Vitamin D is soaked into your body when exposed to sunlight and interacts directly with the cells that fight infection. So whilst you may think you need to increase your intake of vitamin C to keep yourself from getting sick, vitamin D is actually going to help much more. As you can imagine, the main symptom of being vitamin D deficient is a low immune system and contracting sicknesses regularly. Longer exposure to sunlight is your best way of naturally boosting your vitamin D intake.

Vitamin E is most commonly known as a contributor to skin health, but it’s also responsible for the health of your blood, brain and vision. Vitamin E deficiency is rare, however if you are, you may notice symptoms such as weakness, muscle aches and struggles with coordination. To boost your Vitamin E levels you can look to consume more natural oils and nuts.

You’ve probably noticed that a lot of these vitamins are naturally occurring in fresh vegetables. Because of this, it can be of benefit to take supplements comprised of good leafy greens such as Amazonia Raw Greens or Prana On Greens.

Which vitamin supplements are right for you

Now you hopefully have a better understanding of what vitamins are and the big part they play in your daily health. Now let's break it down further and explore the supplement options available.

When it comes to vitamin B, it’s suggested to find a supplement that contains a range of the sub-groups to ensure they’re all boosted. Herbs of Gold have a range of vitamin B capsules including a B complex.

At Great Earth we stock a number of vitamin C supplement options so you can find which type suits you best. Vitus has a vitamin C powder which is vegan and can be mixed into juices or smoothies. Or you could try a chewable vitamin C tablet from Fusion for an easy on-the-go option.

If you’re finding it hard to get out into the sun at the optimum time - taking a fast acting vitamin D supplement could work wonders for you. Herbs of Gold vitamin D capsules allow for easy absorption and assist with calcium intake. We also stock great options in liquid forms for kids and babies from brands like Brauer.

Vitamin E is available in many forms, including capsules, however due to it being so closely associated with skin health, it can be of benefit to use a cream enriched with vitamin E such as Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream.

If you’re noticing that you’re feeling a bit lacklustre overall or you’ve found that you’re low in a number of vitamins - taking a well rounded multivitamin is often a wise choice.
