Prevents future complications related to the common cold
While the verdict is out on the commonly held notion that Vitamin C can help prevent you from catching a cold and that Vitamin C helps fight colds, studies have found that Vitamin C does prevent serious complications from developing when you are sick. If you are feeling under the weather, stop the common cold from becoming something uncommon with Vitamin C
Stress is a familiar enemy for most of us. Sometimes work, family, and other commitments can lead to feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. Vitamin C will not necessarily make you less stressed, but will help your body remain healthy even under extreme duress by keeping your immune system strong even during times of stress.
Lowers the risk of having a stroke
A recent study found that patients with a higher concentration of Vitamin C in the blood had a much lower stroke risk then those with less Vitamin C in their system. The findings are not concrete yet, but still an intriguing possible benefit of Vitamin C.
Make your skin look younger and healthier
Nobody wants wrinkled and dried out skin. Enter Vitamin C. High dosages of Vitamin C have been found to lead to a lower likelihood of dry skin and wrinkles, and in general those with a high amount of Vitamin C have better, more youthful skin.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant
Vitamin C is an ascorbic acid that is needed for your body tissue to survive and thrive. It is a very powerful antioxidant that can protect your body from harmful free radicals. Free radicals can lead to cancer, heart disease and arthritis, so in essence Vitamin C can help prevent these dangerous maladies.
What Foods Contain Vitamin C?
A Vitamin Injection isn't the only way to get Vitamin C in your system. Many foods contain Vitamin C and you will experience some of the benefits you get from a Vitamin C injection. However, since the injection features a large and concentrated amount of Vitamin C, the effects will not be as strong with food as a Vitamin C Injection. Without further ado, here are some foods to eat to get large amounts of Vitamin C:
- Citrus Fruit (i.e Oranges, lemons & grapefruits)
- Bell Peppers
- Dark Green Leafy Vegetables (i.e. Kale, spinach & Broccoli)
- Berries (i.e. Strawerries, blackberries & blueberries)
