Vitamin C helps in the development of healthy gums and in protecting against infections. Additionally, it strengthens many parts of your body such as blood vessels and muscles. Vitamin E helps with the formation of muscle tissues and red blood cells. It also helps reduce the stress from exercise and reduces muscle damage. Vitamin K is important for blood clotting. Vitamin B1, or thiamin, helps fuel your body by converting blood sugar into energy. This keeps your mucous membranes healthy and is essential for nervous system, cardiovascular and muscular function. Potassium is a mineral that helps the kidneys function normally. It is also crucial to heart function and plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function, too. The body stores more than 99 percent of its calcium in the bones and teeth to help make and keep them strong. Your body needs calcium to help muscles and blood vessels contract and expand, to secrete hormones and enzymes and to send messages through the nervous system.
