Daily Vitamin dose for the women should ideally include:
Vitamin A helps in maintaining good eyesight, healthy cell membranes and smooth skin. It also helps in stimulating the body's immune system and fastening the process of wound healing. It is also required for the formation of growth hormone as well as the bones. Not only this, Vitamin A also helps in avoiding defects at the time of giving birth if you take it in adequate amounts during pregnancy. You can take Vitamin A from naturally dark orange products like Carrots as well as from dark green vegetables like broccoli.
Vitamin B Complex
Vitamin B complex include thiamine (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9), Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) as well as Choline, Biotin and Pantothetic Acid.
