The secrets of vitamin C
This week, we’re talking about essential Vitamin C!
We’ve included Vitamin C in both our Immune and Move CBD Capsules, so let’s dive in and get to know this immune-boosting ingredient.
Why is vitamin C important for immunity?
Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells, which help protect the body against infection.
How does vitamin C help your skin?
Vitamin C is also an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It acts as an antioxidant and can help strengthen the skin’s barriers.
How much vitamin C do I need?
Adults aged 19 to 64 need 40mg of vitamin C a day.
It’s found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, broccoli and spinach.
Vitamin C supplements can help improve the absorption of iron from the diet. This is especially useful for those on a meat-free diet, as meat is a major source of iron.
Iron is essential for making red blood cells and transporting oxygen throughout the body.
Vitamin C may have the capacity to widen the blood vessels, and this could help protect against heart disease and hypertension, or high blood pressure.
