Our body is a phenomenon - it reacts to the smallest external influences and it not only takes regular training and a healthy diet to feel good all round, but also the right vitamins! These not only lift our spirits, but also protect us from life-threatening diseases. You don't have to go out and buy all the vitamin supplements you can find now, though. We introduce you to the most important vitamins and explain what they can do.

 

The most important vitamins for your body:

 

  1. VITAMIN D

    If your body lacks vitamin D, you not only feel tired and weak, but also have an increased risk of infection and can suffer from other symptoms such as decalcification of the bones or reduced muscle strength - you should therefore definitely prevent this!

    Your body absorbs vitamin D from fish, eggs, dairy products or mushrooms and of course from the sun. Since the solar radiation in Germany is not as high as in southern countries, you can also help your vitamin D budget with our solarium flat rate. You can find all information here.

     
  2. VITAMIN C

    With its antioxidant effect, vitamin C protects your body from free radicals (substances that destroy cells). This not only strengthens your immune system, but also bones and teeth and ensures tight connective tissue - so let's get the vitamin C!

    You can find it mainly in peppers (contains three times as much vitamin C as oranges, by the way - did you know that?), Citrus fruits, cabbage, green leafy vegetables, kiwi, acerola and cranberries.

     
  3. VITAMIN A

    Vitamin A is great all round, because it not only ensures good eyesight, beautiful skin and hair as well as healthy teeth, gums and mucous membranes, but also protects us against infections.

    To get the best supply of vitamin A, you should eat eggs, dairy products, carrots, sweet potatoes, tuna, meat and green leafy vegetables.

     
  4. FOLIC ACID

    With folic acid you are dealing with a real power vitamin! The body needs the important folic acid for cell division and growth processes and for the oxygen supply of every cell as well as for the formation and function of white blood cells. Folic acid also supports the DNA and protein metabolism as well as the breakdown of homocysteine ​​(an acid that can damage the cardiovascular system). Finally, folic acid also ensures strong hair and healthy digestion.

    Provide your body with this power vitamin by eating more legumes, green leafy vegetables, beetroot, oat flakes, cherries, strawberries and peanuts.

     
  5. VITAMIN E.

    Vitamin E helps against aging, diseases and infections, because it helps the cells to maintain and function properly by protecting against free radicals and hardening of the arteries (like vitamin C).

    Foods that are high in vitamin E include nuts, soy, vegetable oils, whole grains, eggs and avocados.

     
  6. VITAMIN B6

    Vitamin B6 is a natural happiness maker. J Because it is needed for the formation of messenger substances in the brain, the so-called neurotransmitters. This includes, for example, serotonin, which is known to be responsible for feelings of happiness and has a positive effect on our emotional state. Vitamin B6 is also important for protein metabolism (and thus for our muscles) and strengthens our immune system.

    Your body can get vitamin B6 from bananas, chicken, potatoes, and whole grains.

 

Do something good for your body and pay attention to your vitamin supply - you will see that you immediately feel fitter and more comfortable! :)
