Beneficial Effects of Vitamins and Minerals To Your Blood

By Charlene J. Nuble

Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are essential to the health and functioning of the body and are delivered throughout the body by the blood. There are several vitamins and minerals that directly affect the blood and its ability to perform its important tasks within the body. For the blood to be able to perform its duties properly and efficiently as well as the body and mind in general it is necessary to meet the standard recommended daily intake levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients each and every day.

Blood receives its color from the red blood cells which perform one of the most important tasks that the blood does for the body. Red blood cells are responsible for the transportation of oxygen throughout the body as well as for the removal of waste products. Because the average red blood cell lives for about 120 days the body needs to continuously produce a new supply of red blood cells. There are several vitamins and minerals that are essential to the creation of these cells and the ability of these cells to perform their important work in the body.

The vitamins that make up the powerful and very important Vitamin B complex are a major factor in the production of red blood cells in the body. Vitamin B6 also called pyridoxine is a necessary part of the metabolism of red blood cells and is also required to make hemoglobin which is how the red blood cell transports oxygen. Men between the ages of 19 and 50 need 1.3mg daily of Vitamin B6 as do women of the same age group. However, for women during periods of pregnancy the recommended amount is 1.9mg per day and 2.0mg while breastfeeding. Men older than 50 should have a daily Vitamin B6 intake of 1.7mg and women in that age group should take 1.5mg daily. The children's needs however, depends on their age and size, dosages actually range from between.6mg to 1.3mg of Vitamin B6 per day.

Other B complex vitamins that have an important role in the production of red blood cells include Vitamin B2 also known as riboflavin, Vitamin B9 also called as folate in its natural form and folic acid in its pharmaceutical form and Vitamin B12 which is also called cobalamin due to its cobalt content.

Iron is one of the minerals that is essential to the quality, quantity, good health and function of the blood. One of the most important tasks iron serves in the blood is in the production of hemoglobin. Approximately 60% of the iron in the body is found in its hemoglobin.

The mineral copper is also involved in the production of red blood cells and through its enhancement of iron absorption by the body so too is Vitamin C. Vitamin E also helps in red blood cell production. These and the numerous other nutrients involved in making the steady supply of red blood cells essential to the body's good health and well being demonstrate clearly the importance of the every day consumption of the standard recommended daily intake levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

Nutritional supplements can offer a reliable and safe means of making sure that your body has all the nutrients necessary each day to ensure that your blood remains healthy and strong. The quality of your blood will influence the quality of your life. A lot of people are actually suffering from iron deficiency anemia nowadays which can be caused by a lot of contributing factors such as lack of sleep, excessive stress and not having enough liver in take. All of these should be avoided so as to ensure that the anemia will not go on to becoming leukemia or any other irreversible damage to the blood.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
