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