Do you have a stubborn belly bag that just won’t go away?
Are you experiencing hair fall or muscle sore?
Do cough and colds attack you every now and then?
Are you having acne breakouts and other skin infections?
With the mighty help of Vitamin C, you can solve these problems as easy as ABC!
Vitamin C is one of the most abundant vitamins present in the food that we eat like when you get your orange juice on or you take a slice of that ripe papaya. There's so much more to Vitamin C than its sour impression. It is an essential nutrient that our body requires for the development and maintenance of scar tissue, blood vessels, and cartilage.
Let us find out the many wonders of this simple vitamin.
1. When you get injured or develop an infection, your body sends out inflammatory cytokines (a cell signalling molecule), which causes your liver to send out those CRP’s. Scientists believe that Vitamin C adds up to the production of cytokine. So when you get injured and it heals up ASAP, then you do the math.
2. Some people use Vitamin C for other infections including gum disease, acne and other skin infections. Bronchitis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease, stomach ulcers caused by bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, tuberculosis, dysentery (an infection of the lower intestine) are also included same as through the infections of the bladder and prostate. (Phew, that's a lot to memorize!)
3. When you get those "baradong ilong at masakit na lalamunan" grandma will surely buy you dalanghita. That's because these days, vitamin C is used most often for preventing and treating the signs of common colds. As your Vitamin C intake increases, immunity level is boosted thus susceptibility to cough and colds decreases.
4. Constantly exposed to stress? Oh noooo! No matter where your stress is coming from, your adrenal glands depletes due to an almost constant outpouring of stress hormones. Adrenal fatigue will eventually take place and you may experience hair loss, exhaustion and even depression! With vitamin C, you can fight all these!
5. Another study conducted in the Indian Journal of Medical Research showed that patients with type 2 diabetes that took 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily for a six week period had significant declines in serum insulin and blood glucose levels. See that's Vitamin C!
Now, you might be asking: What if I consume too much Vitamin C? Would it give me abnormal health reactions? Since, vitamin C is water-soluble, excesses in the blood is rapidly excreted in the urine. And no, it will not intoxicate you! After all, your body's a wonderland that it could cut off what's too much for you.
