Nutrition is an essential part of our total health and wellbeing. Just like regular exercise, adequate sleep and a well-rounded diet, making sure your beautiful bod is brimming with all the vitamins and nutrients you need to take on the day should be high on your to-do list. But like training, getting your 8 hours shut eye, and eating a balanced diet, it can be hard to do on your own.
Enter Daily Dose🥤
In flavours like Pink Lemonade, Peach Iced Tea and Pina Colada, this vitamin-packed powder turns a boring glass of water into a delicious and refreshing drink that’s as full of health benefits as it is full of flavour.
Each packet of Daily Dose contains 100% of the recommended daily intake of 9 different vitamins that contribute to the overall health of your hair, skin, nails, immune system, energy levels, and more.
So whether you need something energizing when you first wake up, a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, or an evening refreshment, Daily Dose has got you covered 🙌
Here are the 9 main vitamins in Daily Dose and what they can do for you...
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and an essential vitamin, aka the body doesn’t produce it naturally on its own. Antioxidants protect the body from harmful free radicals and inflammation, and Vitamin C strengthens your immune system - that’s why it’s a common way to help fight a cold!
But Vitamin C offers other benefits too. Studies have shown Vitamin C may help to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, certain types of arthritis and joint pain, and decrease your risk of heart disease. It may also prevent iron deficiencies, which can be a concern for those who eat a plant-based diet. Vitamin C has even been shown to protect memory as we age too 👼
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
Thiamine is one of the 8 water-soluble vitamins that make up the Vitamin B Complex. Vitamin B1 helps the body convert carbohydrates to energy and is a favourite supplement of athletes looking to boost their performance.
As if you needed another reason to be convinced of the importance of Thiamine, Vitamin B1 plays a key role in the functioning of nearly all of your body’s essential organs — including your brain, heart and stomach — and systems, including the nervous system.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Another important B Vitamin, Riboflavin can only be stored in small quantities in the body, making it an important part of your daily diet. Riboflavin helps turn proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy and is also essential in the healthy functioning of the digestive system, liver, eyes, muscles, nerves, and skin. There is also developing science as to whether or not Vitamin B2 can help prevent migraine headaches.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Niacin is important to the function of every single part of your body! It is an antioxidant that plays a role in brain, skin and joint function, and has been shown to lower triglycerides and “bad” LDL cholesterol while raising the “good” HDL cholesterol and contributing to heart health.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Vitamin B5 is yet another essential B Vitamin and so it also contributes to the systems that convert food into energy. But Pantothenic Acid specifically contributes to the making of red blood cells, which is a big deal as red blood cells are what carry oxygen throughout your body. This helps stop you feeling fatigued and weak, perfect if you’re smashing your sessions in the gym.
Also important, Vitamin B5 is involved in the proper functioning of your digestive system, nervous system, liver and the creation of hormones in your adrenal glands, which are involved in sex and stress responses. Not to mention, Vitamin B5 is often added to cosmetic products as it has additional benefits to your hair, skin, nails and eyes. That’s one little vitamin putting in a whole load of work!
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Like all the other B Vitamins, Pyridoxine plays a part in your body’s metabolic process. But it is also known to be important in the creation of important brain neurotransmitters, helping to regulate serotonin and dopamine thereby playing a vital role in your emotions. Adequate levels of Vitamin B6 have been linked to good moods and have even been shown to ward off depression, period-related mood swings, and more nausea during pregnancy.
A versatile little vitamin, Pyridoxine has also been shown to reduce joint inflammation, promote eye health, lower risks of certain types of cancers, prevent clogged arteries, and prevent anaemia.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin)
If you’ve ever wanted to grow long, strong nails 💅 and hair, and add a little extra glow to your skin, you’ve probably considered a Biotin supplement. Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7, is a helpful little nutrient when it comes to maintaining strong skin, hair, eyes, liver and nails, and has been shown to be crucial for fetal development in pregnant women. So if you’re working on your hair flip or baby bump, Biotin is an absolute must.
Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid)
Another vitamin that plays a crucial role in both healthy bodies and growing embryos is Folic Acid. Vitamin B9, as it is also known, plays an important role in proper brain function as well as mental and emotional health. It helps to produce the body's genetic materials, RNA and DNA, and is therefore extra important during times of rapid cell growth, like during infancy, adolescence and pregnancy.
Like all other B Vitamins, Folic Acid contributes to the creation of fuel from food and is an important part of liver, skin, and nervous system function.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
Especially if you are on a plant-based diet, Vitamin B12 might be a supplement you’re familiar with. This last B vitamin is essential in the production of DNA, prevention of anaemia, and the proper functioning of the body’s nerves and blood cells. While Vitamin B12 can be found in a variety of animal foods, it does not occur widely in plant-based food, making it an important addition to anyone who opts out of meat eating. Missing out on essential Vitamin B12 can leave you feeling tired and weak, so be sure to reclaim that energy with a daily drink of your Daily Dose 🥤
