Everyone needs vitamins. I know, it sounds pretty obvious, but you would be surprised how many people don’t have a good understanding of what they need to eat for the best health. You can get some of your necessary vitamins in the food, and others are only available as supplements (which is why it’s important to take them every day). Below is a list of the most essential vitamins for your health and longevity!

Vitamin A

 

Found in whole milk, eggs, red peppers, and liver. This vitamin is important for vision–especially night-time vision. It helps to heal infections and build your immune system. Vitamin A also provides help to your heart, kidneys, lungs, and other major organs and keeps them running smoothly.

Vitamin C

Citrus fruits contain a high level of this vitamin along with oranges, grapefruits, and lemons. The body needs vitamin C to make collagen for healthy skin, muscles, tendons, and bones. Like Vitamin A, this vitamin is essential to maintaining a healthy immune system.

Vitamin D

Unlike most vitamins that are found in food sources such as eggs or liver – this one is only available through supplements because it’s produced by the sun! This important nutrient helps your nervous system function properly while also helping you maintain strong teeth and bone health too.

Vitamin E

Some of the best foods with high levels of this essential nutrient include almonds (or other nuts), avocados, broccoli sprouts, and wheat germ oil among others which aid in keeping things like eyesight sharp; blood cells functioning correctly; preventing heart disease.

Folate

Folic Acid aids in creating new cells from the DNA that is found in your genes. This nutrient is only available through supplements as it’s not naturally occurring in food sources such as liver–though some spinach and beans might have a small amount of natural folate too, you would need to eat an awful lot!

Vitamin B-12

The best sources of this vitamin are meat (particularly organ meats like beef liver), fish such as salmon or tuna; dairy products such as cheese or yogurt; and eggs. As an essential nutrient that plays many roles in the body including supporting energy production, cell creation and growth, hair health, and nerve function among others needs to be consumed on a daily basis through foods containing it rather than supplements which can lead to toxicity if taken too often without food accompanying them. It can’t be found in many foods such as dairy or eggs either, which is why it’s important for vegans and vegetarians to make sure they’re taking this nutrient every day!

Zinc

This essential mineral aids the body in fighting off infection, boosting immunity, and other benefits including healing wounds faster. You’ll find a lot of zinc in oysters and beef liver–a good thing you should eat more often anyways because their meat contains high levels of iron too.

Iron

Iron aids in the creation of red blood cells that give you energy, transport oxygen to organs and tissues like your heart and brain, it also aids in storing needed iron in your body and so much more! You can get a lot of this important nutrient from meat sources such as liver or oysters along with nuts (almonds are especially high).

Selenium

Selenium is an antioxidant that helps protect against many types of cancers–such as skin cancer. This mineral also plays a critical role when it comes to reproduction, fertility rates, sexual function among other things. Some good sources for selenium include Brazil nuts; sunflower seeds; tuna fish; garlic cloves.

Conclusion

It’s important to know what the most essential vitamins are for your body in order to keep you healthy and help sustain a low-cost lifestyle. Just remember that these are only some of them–there is much more we could go over! It can be tough to get all the necessary amounts through food alone so always have options like supplements on hand just in case. Remember: A little goes a long way, but try not to take too many if they’re available as part of an existing meal since this may lead to toxicity which will cause negative side effects instead of positive ones – such as feeling sick or experiencing stomach discomfort.
