At certain times we may want to increase our consumption of foods high in particular vitamins. For example, an increase in health food products containing vitamin B such as whole grains, leafy green vegetables, eggs, milk and yeast extract could help if we are under stress. If we feel our immune system is compromised then we should increase levels of vitamin C rich foods. Many fruits contain high levels of vitamin C including citrus fruits and kiwi fruit. Vegetables, including peppers also contain high levels of vitamin C. Eating health food products rich in vitamin C can also help those of us who bruise easily, are slow to heal and suffer from excessive tiredness.
There will be times however when we cannot obtain sufficient vitamins through food alone. We can then turn to the vast array of supplements available from health food stores. These natural health supplements can help us obtain higher levels of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which can be very beneficial during times of illness for example.
