The ABC’s of Vitamins

Important Vitamins and Their Sources

Here’s our Cast List: Vitamin A; the “B’s” (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12); Vitamins C, D, E, K, and P.

Some, like Vitamin C, are old friends; others, like Vitamin P (bioflavonoids) are more mysterious. What they have in common: all can be found in one or another food source. And all can be taken as “Vitamin Supplements.”

Here’s where the ABC’s of vitamins begin to get fuzzy. Not everyone agrees on the merits of vitamin supplements. And vitamins appear to have a role in disease prevention, but researchers are still working to understand it.

We do know that a balanced diet of meat, fish, dairy products, whole grains, citrus and other fruits, and green leafy vegetables can provide virtually all necessary vitamins and minerals. But handfuls of vitamin supplements can’t turn a “junk food” diet into a healthy one.
