Your Daily Vitamins: Vitamin C

Winter is a harsh time for many of us, a lack of sunlight and cold weather really can take it’s toll on the mind and body. There are a lots of things that can help with this, eating well and getting enough exercise. But if like me you don’t always have the time for a daily work out or time to cook a well-balanced meal, something I make sure I do is to take vitamins to give me that added boost. Vitamins come naturally in the food we eat but that doesn’t mean we are getting enough of them or the right ones for our bodies.

One of the best and most important vitamins to take for me would be Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. This vitamin is abundant in many fruits and vegetables and is a powerful antioxidant, which helps the body form and maintain connectivity, like tissue, bones, blood vessels and skin.

It not only helps maintain but also to repair and regenerate tissues, protecting against heart disease and aiding in the absorption of other vitamins such as Iron, which helps with fatigue. It is  common to not get enough iron, one of the highest vitamin deficiencies known. Taking Vitamin C helps aid this as well.  It can also be beneficial  in  helping to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. It has also been shown to fight free radicals and neutralise the effects of nitrites, which are bad preservatives found in packaged foods. I take 250mg tablets from Terra Nova which are non- acidic and multi-ascorbate. They are best taken with food to help aid absorption into the body, they are free from additives and free from animal products. Keeping them as natural as possible which is always best.
