"Let food be your medicine" - Hippocrates
|Supplements - Vitamins|
Vitamins and nutrients are necessary for a healthy life. You get vitamins from the foods you eat but most people do not get enough of the good vitamins and nutrients.
It has been clearly established that many diets today are deficient in vitamins that we all need to grow and remain healthy.
Taking care of those deficiency is often done through vitamin supplements.
Vitamins are often used in home remedies to help ease discomforts from common illnesses and conditions.
The human body also requires vitamins to do things such as:
When the skin gets a cut, the human body needs vitamins to clot.
When you get sick, your body requires a more than average amount of vitamins to help fight the virus.
Some vitamins even help produce energy throughout the body.
Vitamins can help you when you feel tired and sluggish throughout the day.
There are so many great things that vitamins can do for your body that it’s easy to see why people take them as a form of home remedy.
They are not only great for treating a condition but for preventing it in the first place.
What Do Vitamins Do for Your Body:
Vitamin A - Helps maintain the integrity of skin and mucous membranes that function as a barrier to bacteria and viruses.
It also helps in part to regulate the immune system. The immune system helps prevent or fight off infections by making white blood cells that destroy harmful bacteria and viruses.
Calcium- Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones and teeth.
You must absorb calcium every day from your dietary intake because your body cannot make calcium on its own.
Liquid Vitamins and Minerals:
Also commonly used now and in many home remedies are liquid vitamins and minerals.
Materials in liquid minerals are typically up to 98% absorbable. This means that you are getting more than you would by taking those big pills.
People also like them better because they tend to be easier to take. No one likes to have to swallow a large “horse pill” or taste a nasty chalkiness in their mouth.
Liquid vitamins and minerals have no bad aftertaste and are more affective than pills form.
Many people that use vitamin and mineral supplements as natural home remedies take them in liquid form.
