If you are on a mission to shed some extra weight and get the perfect bikini body, it is very helpful to include it in your diet. Whole grain breads, beans and daily cereals contain enough of these vitamins to keep you going.

The best way to get homemade vitamin C is to take the peel of an organic orange and drying it. Once it is dry use a coffee maker or some blender to make powder from the peels. One table spoon of the powder would be enough supply for the day. This way you will not only eliminate waste but get free supply of vitamin C even after the oranges are consumed.

Vitamin D has multiple benefits and plays a central role in muscle functioning.

For vegans and vegetarians, kale or beans are rich in iron and can help you in decreasing the frequency of iron supplements.
