Are you getting your daily dose of Vitamin C?

We all know Vitamin C helps to boost your immune system. Many of us seek it out during a cold and when flu season hits.

All in the hopes of Vitamin C keeping us well. Sadly, Vitamin C cannot prevent the common cold - but there are amazing benefits to taking a daily dose of Vitamin C.

Here are 5 Vitamin C benefits that you can expect:

  1. Reduce the risk of disease
    Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant; it can boost your blood antioxidant levels which may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. 

  2. Lower blood pressure
    Vitamin C has been found to reduce blood pressure in both healthy adults and adults with existing high blood pressure.

  3. Protect the heart
    Vitamin C supplements have been found to significantly reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol and blood triglycerides, common risk factors for heart disease risk factors.

  4. Defend the brain
    Low levels of vitamin C have been linked to an increased risk of memory and thinking disorders like dementia, while high intake has been shown to have a protective effect.

  5. Prevent anemia
    Vitamin C can improve iron absorption, including from plant-based food, and may also reduce the risk of iron deficiency.

Cold or no cold, that’s five good reasons for a daily dose of Vitamin C. For an added boost, get it in a nutri-tonic, like SHOJO, that will give you added health benefits, whatever the time of year.
