Simple Sources of Natural Vitamins Posted By : Mary Smith

Both foodies and farmers know that vitamins don't only come in bottles. Our modern marketing and consumerism machines try to get us to believe that vitamin supplement pills are the only answer, but we all know the truth: natural sources are better.

Many people do not eat proper, balanced diets, and suffer from vitamin deficiency. However, rather than looking for a solution in a bottle, nutritionists recommend people begin eating more healthful foods to get the range of vitamins their bodies need.

Some chosen diets, such as vegetarian, provide a limited number of natural vitamins and therefore a supplement may be the best option. It can be time consuming and complicated for some special dieters to get the foods they need, in the ratios that are best, from natural sources. But for most diets, food can provide all you need!

One of the keys to this is to gain knowledge about the different kinds of vitamins, and the natural vitamin sources that are best. Once you have that knowledge, incorporating as many of them as possible into your diet will be easy! Water soluble vitamins must be repleneshed each day because they cannot be stored in our bodies. Therefore, learning natural vitamin sources in those cases is the most important step. Many of the following natural sources will be from things you already have in your home, so it will be a cinch to start! Here is a list of many common sources for vitamins:

* Natural vitamin B8 sources can include molasses, vegetables, meat, whole grains, nuts, milk, brewer's yeast, citrus fruits
