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.

Put Some 'Spring' In Your Step!

Have you ‘languished’ in the greyness of winter and the ‘blah’ (apathy) of Covid lockdowns?

You are not alone, and there is a real reason for it.

With the shorter winter days, the ‘pea-sized’ pineal gland in the brain increases the release of melatonin so you can often feel tired and unmotivated.

But as we pass the Equinox (the true start of Spring) 22nd September 2021, our eyes start to register more daylight, and this triggers the pineal gland to reduce the release of melatonin and this allows you to feel a lift in your energy levels and your mood.
