Vitamins: A Key to Good Health

Vitamins are essential for proper body function. If you do not
get enough of the essential vitamins you need, several
problems can occur, from bone loss to headaches. So, the
question you need to ask yourself is: Are you getting enough of
the vitamins you need?
You need lots of vitamins, and all are going to strengthen your
body in various ways. Let’s take a look at vitamin C, for

Vitamin C is a very important vitamin. Vitamin C is an essential
vitamin to get enough of if you want to keep your immune
system functioning and for keeping your connective tissue
healthy. Vitamin C is a great vitamin to get enough of if you
want to slow down the aging process. If you get enough vitamin
C in your diet every day, it will help to keep away the wrinkles
by keeping the connective tissue under the skin strong and
healthy. Not to mention that vitamin C is a strong anti-oxidant,
and is often used in large doses to treat patients with cancer
and other chronic diseases.

Something to consider with vitamin C is that our bodies don’t
store it very well and we can’t make it, so we must get all of our
vitamin C from our diets. Eating a healthy diet chock full of fresh
fruits and vegetables, we will get plenty of vitamin C. However,
not everyone eats fruits and vegetables in the quantities
needed to get enough vitamin C. Many can’t get their children to
eat enough fruits and vegetables. So what is an alternative

While nothing can completely replace the value of eating fresh
fruits and vegetables in your daily diet, there are things you can
do to fill in the gaps. Everyone needs 5 to 9 daily servings of
fresh fruits and vegetables for the nutrients they contain and for
general health, but if you take a look at your eating habits you
will likely find that 5-9 servings is probably close to double what
you and your children are actually getting.

The following is a list of some simple things you can do to
implement more vitamins into your diet without significant
changes to your daily routine:

1. Instead of buying juices, try buying whole fruits and a
juicer and making your own. It does not take much longer, and
can provide you with many more vitamins than the prepackaged
variety. The closer you get your food to nature the better it is
going to be fore you.

2. Have fresh veggies on hand and available for snacking.
Cut cucumber, have baby carrots, and any of your other favorite
vegetables, already washed and ready to go so that the next
time you reach for a snack. It is as easy to grab a slice of fruit,
or a piece of vegetable as it is to grab junk food.

3. Make your own salsa, ketchup, etc., or buy the fresh
made variety. While it is convenient to purchase processed
salsa that does not require refrigeration until after it is opened,
many of the nutritional values are lost. So, when you are in the
mood for salsa, slice up your favorite salsa ingredients and eat
fresh salsa.

4. Try all natural supplementation of the vitamins and
minerals your body is missing. A good choice for this option
would be Zija. It is an all natural health beverage that is
conveniently packaged in a small can that can easily fit in your
purse or bag. It is made from the Moringa oleifera tree, which is
an excellent source of many vitamins, including vitamin A, B, C, D
and much more. It is also a great source for calcium, protein,
and potassium. Zija does not have a bunch of artificial
ingredients; rather, it is made from the parts of the tree that are
the most nutritious, They are dried, ground up, then water is
added to them and they are packaged to make a quick and easy

5. Have one day a week where you abstain from the junk,
and load up on the good stuff. One day is not too much to ask,
it is easy to do, and can taste great. While nutrition and health
may be reasons you eat certain fruits and vegetables, there are
many other reasons why you choose the ones you do, such as
crunchiness, juiciness, or bright colors. Whatever the reason, try
to eat them often; most are quick to prepare and easy to eat.

6. Try all of the above, this is a great way to meet all of
your nutritional needs with little change to your already
established eating habits. You can make small adjustments like
fresh juices and salsas, etc., instead of packaged ones, and
then fill in the gaps of your diet with the well-rounded and
extremely healthy drink Zija.
