Have you ever noticed how much the media changes its mind of what's good and bad for you?
We have. We get that it can be hard to work out if you are having too much of this or too little of that.
From salt, butter and oils there is so much talk about what we should and shouldn't be eating. But the one constant that we all know is that we all need to have our vitamins... (even if we don't like eating our vegetables!)
So here we are because we feel you - it's not always easy to do the right thing and we want to give a little helping hand.
That's why we created our Benefit family, from protein chocolate to beetroot juice we do our best to put as many vitamins and goodness into your diet without you needing to work out the A -Z of it all.
Although thinking about it, we realised that many of us don't really know what also those different vitamins do for our bodies, so here's a little cheat sheet for you - to help you understand a little more about what we enrich our chocolates and juices with.
All our Benefit products are enriched with vitamins and our Benefit Drinks A, C and E which help to keep your immune system running properly.
Vitamin A - Found in vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes and red peppers through Beta-carotene which gives them their orange and red colour and turns into vitamin A in our bodies.
This helps our body's defence against illness and infection as well as helping our vision in low light (that's right carrots do help you see in the dark!).
* Please note if you are pregnant, you should avoid too much Vit A.
Vitamin C - Found in many fruits and vegetables, from blackcurrants, broccoli and brussels sprouts to name a few!
Not only is Vit C in loads of fruit and veg, but it is also packed with loads of benefits from protecting our cells, maintaining healthy skin, blood vessels, bone and cartilage which in turn helps us heal wounds.
Vitamin E - Found in plenty of oils, such as corn, soya and olive as well as nuts and seeds.
Vitamin E helps maintain healthy skin and eyes and strengthen the body's natural defence against illness and infection (the immune system).
In total, we pack each carton with goodness that helps your immune system, bones, blood vessels, skin and eyesight!
We hope this helps you make sense a little more of why we enrich all our juices and if you liked our blog.
