Top 20 Vitamins for Health and Beauty

Week One 20 – 15

 

All of us are aware of how important getting enough vitamins is for our overall health and well being. But did you also know that there are many vitamins which help keep ageing at bay? In my quest to keeping you young on the inside and out, I thought I’d compile a top 20 of what I consider to be the essential vitamins and minerals. After all what you look like on the outside is often a reflection of what is going on inside.

I must also stress a healthy diet and exercise, and the importance of drinking at least 6-8 glasses of water daily, not only help to keep skin, mind and body at optimum levels of health and vitality, but to also enhance benefits of a correct vitamin regime. No vitamin regime should be undertaken without consulting a doctor or healthcare professional especially if you require regular medication as there could be some contraindications with supplements (i.e. interference with certain drugs).

 

20.Vitamin E RDA 400-800 IU
This can help to improve circulation in tiny facial capillaries, replace the cells on the skins surface, as well as leave the skin feeling soft. A capsule can be pierced and used neat on dryer areas of the skin or massaged into dry hands/cuticles.

19.Zinc RDA 15-20mg
It plays an essential part in the synthesis of protein and collagen formation. It is also an excellent immune booster during cold and flu season.

18. Selenium RDA 50mcg
Vitamin E and selenium are synergistic. In short, they boost one another’s potent anti-aging capabilities and encourage the skin to maintain its youthful elasticity.

17.Vitamin C RDA 500mg
It plays an important role helping the body to make collagen. It is also a powerful antioxidant which certain studies have shown to limit the damage caused by free radicals.

16. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) RDA 1,000mg
It is otherwise know as “the beauty mineral” as it has the capability to aid in the formation of collagen. It has been shown to support collagen and in turn promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.

15.Goji Berry (concentrate)
These berries have been used for thousands of years by Chinese herbalist, and have also gained some notoriety in recent years. Goji berries possess powerful antioxidant properties, as well as being high in caronoids and amino acids–all of which you and your overall health can benefit from.
