Nutrients and Your Body

By Laurieann @laurieann14
I wanted to share with you the following nutrients and what they help and the foods that you can find them in.
Vitamin A--- Gives you dewy, even toned skin and a healthy scalp. It also helps maintain your eyesight.
   ------Cantaloupe, grapefruit, apricots, carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, pumpkin, eyes
Vitamin B---- Prevents your skin from becoming too oily and decrease breakouts. B vitamins also boost your metabolism and can help improve the quality of hair, skin and muscle tone.
   -----Bananas, poultry, tuna, shellfish, avocado, beans, nuts, eggs, milk, whole grains
Vitamin C---Diminishes the appearance of scars, cuts, and bruises;  boost collagen production, which is good for your skin; and fuels your immune system.
   -----Citrus fruits, berries, apples, melon, pineapples, tomatoes, spinach, cabbage, red and green peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts cauliflower
Vitamin D----Helps combat dry skin and is important for the development of healthy teeth and bones
   -----You can get the "sunshine" vitamin by spending 10 to 15 minutes three times a week in the sunlight---without sunscreen on. It can also be found in fortified milk and other dairy products, tuna and salmon.
Vitamin E---Gives you healthy skin and minimizes scars, burns, inflammation, and irritations. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant, so it helps with dry, flaky skin and protects the skin from damage.
