By eating a well balanced diet we can get most of the vitamins and minerals we need to help keep our body running smoothly.
But not every diet is always going to be perfect and we may find ourselves lacking from time to time, which is why finding a great supplement to add into your routine can make a positive impact on your body.
This is exactly why we have been obsessed with the range of Eloments Organic Vitamin teas.
They blend fair trade ingredients with 100% natural vitamins, so you can boost your intake of vitamins by just pouring yourself a cuppa, too easy!
When you make yourself a cup of Eloments tea you're going to get a blend of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, C and zinc and although the body only requires small amounts of these nutrients they play a vital role in your health.
So how do these vitamins impact your body? We got the answers straight from Eloments tea themselves:
Vitamin B1 helps your body to make energy from the food you eat.
Vitamin B2 helps your body make energy from food. It also helps maintain healthy function of your eyes, skin, liver, muscles and nerves. Also assists hormones to be produced in the adrenal glands.
Vitamin B3 needed for mental health as well as digestive and skin health. On top of this B3 or niacin is responsible for helping over 200 enzyme reactions in your body take place.
Vitamin B5 helps you to make energy from the food you eat. It's also needed to make red blood cells, steroids, stress hormones and neurotransmitters which help send messages throughout your body.
