What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin which is most commonly associated with the immune system, but it also helps with collagen production and improves iron absorption. A vitamin C deficiency can lead to a weakened immune system, leaving you susceptible to all manner of illnesses such as colds or flu. And during times of stress or illness your vitamin C level can drop further, regardless of how well you are eating, so it is in even greater demand. The body’s only source of vitamin C is the diet; it isn’t produced within the body which is why a supplement or multivitamin may be important. Vitamin C is a great way to bolster your immune system as it is a natural antioxidant. But you don’t need to wait until you are ill; supplementing your vitamin C before or during times of illness can lead to reduced symptoms and may even shorten the duration of respiratory infections such as the common cold.
