Welcome to another exciting episode, I hope you had a great weekend? We are still talking about everything about vitamins, and this week we are diving into the water-soluble vitamins. If you remember from our first post this month, we mentioned nine water-soluble vitamins. Well, we will be looking at two of these vitamins, vitamin C and B1.
Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say. Though it may not be the cure for the common cold, the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.
Good sources of vitamin C are fresh fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits. Vitamin C can also be made in a laboratory.
Vitamin C is required for the proper development and function of many parts of the body. It also plays an important role in maintaining proper immune function.
Vitamin C does more than boost the immune system. The body needs vitamin C to produce collagen (hello healthy skin + hair), help the brain transmit messages properly, as well as help the body absorb iron. The antioxidants in vitamin C help the body fight certain cancers, along with aiding in wound care.
Vitamin B1, or thiamin, helps prevent complications in the nervous system, brain, muscles, heart, stomach, and intestines.
They help to convert carbohydrates, fats, and protein into energy, or glucose.
B vitamins are necessary for keeping the liver, skin, hair, and eyes healthy. They also play a role in the nervous system, and they are necessary for good brain function.
The B vitamins are sometimes called anti-stress vitamins because they boost the body’s immune system in times of stress.
