When deciding which vitamins are needed in your diet, consulting a vitamin chart can be helpful. You may want to ask your doctor if they have a vitamin chart, or look online or in your local library for books on health.
A good vitamin chart will show different vitamins, their benefits, what foods they can be found in, and what are signs of deficiencies. Your chart should include A, B1,B2, B6, B12, C, D, E, K, Calcium, Iron, Niacin, Riboflavin, and Fatty Acids. You will also be advised to find a chart that lists the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of each vitamin and mineral.
If you are concerned about a specific health issue, consult your doctor or nutritionist about what nutrients from the vitamin chart might be useful for you to take. You may not need to stock up on a lot of pills and remedies, as it may be as simple as changing your diet or adding a certain food to your daily intake. Check to see which vitamins are water-soluble versus fat-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in your body and you many not need to take a daily dose of them, as you body will store them for you.
