The Amazing Health & Beauty Wonders of Vitamin C
 

We have all heard of the most popular Vitamin of them all - Vitamin C. Glorified for its incredibly powerful health and beauty benefits, this dietary essential is extremely critical to the human body for the growth and repair of tissues. Regularly consuming Vitamin C, whether through our daily diet or through dietary supplements, is especially important because our body needs it yet is unable to store it.

Our body needs Vitamin C for the production of collagen – a protein that helps to support our tendons, ligaments and blood vessels while keeping our skin and other organs healthy. As if that sound crucial enough, Vitamin C also improves the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and strengthens our immune system to protect our body from the attack of illnesses and diseases.

Here are more good reasons to start taking your daily Vitamin C:

1. Boosts Immunity
Perhaps the most popular health benefit of Vitamin C, taking a healthy dose regularly will help boost your immunity and protect your body from succumbing to infections and common illnesses like coughs and colds. It enhances our body’s ability to repair wounds and keeps us immune to bacteria and viruses in our everyday environment.


2. Acts as An Antioxidant
Vitamin C has long been known as a powerful antioxidant. It protects our body from the attacks of free radicals that cause oxidative stress and cellular damage – a factor often associated with aging, cancer and a host of other diseases.


3. Increases Production of Collagen
Vitamin C is a highly essential component in the body’s natural production of
collagen. As we age, the amount of collagen declines – and this is further
accelerated by other factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking, free radicals
and inflammation. The best way to boost collagen production? Vitamin C, of course!

4. Improves Skin Texture
Another reason why women, especially, love Vitamin C is its anti-aging effects on
the skin. The beautifying and age-defying effects of Vitamin C are largely attributed
to the production and support of healthy collagen. Working cohesively with elastin,
collagen helps provide firmness, suppleness and youthfulness for our skin.


5. Strengthens Hair
One of the best kept secrets to healthier and stronger hair is Vitamin C. According to
studies, having Vitamin C deficiency can result in dry or splitting hair and may even
lead to hair loss and other hair-related conditions in the long run.


6. Makes You Feel More Energized
Adding to the many different vital roles of Vitamin C is the absorption of iron. Vitamin C is necessary for the body to absorb iron, which contributes significantly to your overall health, beauty and wellbeing. Without sufficient iron, you can develop anemia and may experience extreme fatigue and weakness.


Best Sources of Vitamin C:
Vitamin C can be easily found in many types of fruits and vegetables. Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, grapefruit and kiwi are loaded with Vitamin C; and so are vegetables like broccoli, potatoes and tomatoes.

Following the recommended daily number of servings will ensure you get ample amounts your body needs. However, if you find it difficult to get your daily dose of Vitamin C through your diet, you will also find that Vitamin C is widely available in the form of dietary supplements. They come in various forms including ready-to-drink beverages, soluble powder, capsules and tablets.
