Are you aware of all the vitamins and minerals necessary to stay healthy, both internally and externally? Do you know in what foods you can find them, the quantities present and how they are best consumed?
Vitamins are essential for maintaining growth, development and health. Mineral supplements and trace elements are the key to keeping your body working as well as it should.
Food is the best source of vitamins and minerals
Food is always the best way to get vitamins and minerals. Humans have evolved to extract these resources from food and then put them to good use.
So, instead of reaching for the jar of nutritional supplements, whenever possible you should think about what goes on your plate and in your glass. Is your diet giving you all the resources you need to stay healthy?
Plantui microgreens are full of these good resources. The vitamin and mineral contents of microgreens are 40-50 times higher than those of adult plants. In addition to high levels of vitamins C, E, and K, microgreens are also high in carotenoids, especially beta-carotene. Carotenoids can be converted into vitamin A and act in the body as antioxidants, protecting against cell damage and inflammation. Microgreens are also rich in minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium, iron, zinc and copper.
Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins
The importance of vitamin C has long been known. In addition to keeping us lively and boosting our immune system, vitamin C is important for healthy skin, hair and teeth. In addition to tissues, vitamin C is important for bone growth and cell regeneration. Vitamin C is important if you are seeking to keep your body’s production of collagen functioning well so that your skin will stay smooth.
Vitamin C also helps with the absorption of iron, promotes the function of vitamin E and protects against various diseases.
Vitamin C is a revitalizing vitamin and it is a recommended part of our daily intake because of its water solubility.
Vitamin K for strong bones and clear arteries
Vitamin K plays an essential role in blood clotting, and is also important for bones. Adequate intake of vitamin K prevents osteoporosis as it affects calcium metabolism. Vitamin K improves resistance and also prevents calcification of arteries.
Vitamin E brings external and internal well-being
Vitamin E ensures that the skin stays healthy and glowing. If your skin is dry and flaky, make sure you get enough vitamin E to prevent inflammation and protect your skin from oxygen radicals.
Vitamin E also protects us on a deeper level below the surface by blocking free radicals and disrupting the destructive impact they have on our cell structures. Studies also suggest that vitamin E may p
revent cardiovascular disease. Another important study into vitamin E is the potential protective effect against cancer.
Beta-carotene – not just available in carrots
Carotenoids, which can be converted into vitamin A, act as antioxidants in our bodies. Carotene is stored in the body and converted to vitamin A as needed. Vitamin A takes care of the skin and mucous membranes, as well as our eyes and visual well-being.
