Dr Oz: 5 Vitamins Every Woman Needs
Do you think about vitamins when you go to the grocery store? It’s hard enough to stick to recipes or a list without factoring in the food’s vitamin contents. Dr Oz broke it down using the alphabet.
Dr Oz: Beta Carotene Vitamin A in Sweet Potatoes
Many foods are high in Vitamin A. Sweet Potatoes have the highest concentration of beta carotene, but other good sources of Vitamin A include carrots, cantaloupe, and mangoes.
Dr Oz: Vitamin B from Pistachios
That brings us to Vitamin B, which is good for the metabolism, the mind, and your muscles. Sources of Vitamin B include:
- Brown Rice
But which one has the most? Pistachios grow huge trees because they have such dense nutrients. Nuts are almost always the right answer when it comes to nutrition, according to Doctor Oz.
Dr Oz: Red Bell Peppers for Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps keep us healthy and manage our stress. What food do you think has the highest Vitamin C in the store? It might surprise you to know that Red Bell Peppers are the best source of this vitamin.
Just one red bell pepper per day gives you twice the Vitamin C you need in your daily diet.
Dr Oz: Vitamin D3 from Salmon
Getting Vitamin D from food means you won’t have to take a supplement for it. Which source do you think has the highest concentration of natural Vitamin D?
- Bran Cereal
Salmon is a great source of Vitamin D3, which the body naturally craves; it’s good for the immune system and you can eat it on Meatless Mondays.
Dr Oz: Dry Roasted Sunflower Seeds for Vitamin E
