Vitamins are essential nutrients your body needs to function and stay healthy. Even if you have a healthy diet, many people don't get enough of certain vitamins through food alone. At No Name Nutrition Market in Omaha, our health food store has the all-natural vitamin supplements you need to live your healthiest life.
4 Vitamins People Don't Get Enough Of Through Food
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and maintain healthy bones. Your body can produce vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, but many people don't get enough sun exposure to meet their vitamin D needs. Few foods naturally contain vitamin D, so taking a supplement can help you get enough.
Vitamin B12 is found almost exclusively in animal products, so vegans and vegetarians are at a higher risk of deficiency. Older adults and those with certain digestive disorders may also have trouble absorbing vitamin B12. To ensure you're getting enough vitamin B12, consider taking a supplement or eating fortified breakfast cereals, nutritional yeast, and fortified plant-based milk.
Good sources of vitamin E include nuts, seeds, vegetable oils, and leafy green vegetables. However, it can be difficult to consume enough vitamin E through food alone. Consider taking a supplement if you're concerned about your vitamin E intake.
Good sources of vitamin K include leafy green vegetables, such as kale, spinach, and broccoli, as well as vegetable oils and fermented foods. While many people do get enough vitamin K through their diet, for people who may not be as good about eating their leafy greens, a supplement may help give you the extra dose.
While you can get certain vitamins through diet, others can be difficult to consume in sufficient amounts through food alone.
