Explanation of the Vitamin and Minerals that are great for your skin
Vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals, which prevents cells from degenerating, Vitamin A helps to slow aging, helps with a youthful appearance
B vitamins that are especially important to skin health are Vitamin B1 (thiamine) and Vitamin B3 (niacin) promote blood circulation throughout the body and help deliver nutrients to skin cells. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) contributes to healthy growth of skin, hair and nails. A deficiency in this vitamin can lead to liver spots, oily skin and cracked skin around the mouth. Vitamin B6 helps the liver and muscles to release stored carbohydrates and is important for the manufacturing of vitamin B3, red blood cells and antibodies.
Folic acid, also known as Vitamin B9 is extremely beneficial for the skin and hair as it maintains cell production. Folic acid cleanses the skin and work jointly with antioxidants to remove toxins from our body.
Vitamin C, which is the food for collagen that is essential for skin elasticity, the prevention of wrinkles and slowing down the signs of aging.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that also helps protect cells from free radicals. It works along with vitamin A for numerous skin benefits. Vitamin E will also help with reducing your risk of skin damage, including skin cancer.
Vitamin K – reduces dark circles around the eyes giving you the appearance of younger and brighter by reducing the blood leaks from fragile capillaries under-eye circles, Daily use of a vitamin K significantly lightened circles after 4 months in one study.
Copper -is necessary for your body to make connective tissue and is very important for the metabolism of iron
Iron – is also essential for cell growth and differentiation
Manganese – is important for production of enzymes and antioxidants that fight free radical damage.
Potassium – which help in the growth of new skin cells and help the body to maintain the proper electrolyte balance, reduce acne/blemishes plus help with scars/dark spots reduction on the skin.
Omega–3 fatty acids contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). EPA helps regulate the oil production to boost hydration and prevent acne plus has the added benefit of delaying the skins aging process.
Zinc – you need for normal growth and healthy immune system function. It’s involved in protein production, DNA synthesis and cell division. Zinc is also necessary for hundreds of enzymes and is also crucial for a normal sense of smell and taste.
