Vitamins & Minerals Work Better Together

 

We like to think of our social communities as close, helpful and inter-connected.  We rely on one another for all sorts of daily help.  Kids help moms into the house with groceries.  Friends help each other by listening and giving support.  Friends and family help make special events successful and fun with a little help from everyone. 

Vitamins support each other in many of  the same ways.

 

Different vitamin molecules interact with each other in specific body processes and biological circumstances in ways that promote and actively assist your body’s best use of each vitamin.  

 

Did you know…

 

  • Vitamin C is required for proper protein metabolism and also improves absorption of Iron from plant-based foods

 

  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is needed to help your body convert Vitamin B6 and Folate into their active forms

 

  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) helps your body best use lots of other vitamins, including Vitamin B2

 

  • Vitamin B6 is necessary for the proper absorption of Vitamin B12 and helps Iron function properly in your body through its role in proper red blood cell production

 

  • Folate and B12 work together to produce SAM-e (s-adenosylmethionine)

 

It is very important to have a well-rounded vitamin and mineral program if you already have nutrient absorption issues or know you’re deficient in certain vitamins or minerals so they can help each other work within your body to give you the best each nutrient has to offer.
