Vitamin C

Are you getting enough?

What can vitamin C do for you ?

There are so many benefits to making sure we get our daily dose of vitamin C.

Our bodies can’t make it or store it so it’s vital we’re getting enough in our diets or taking supplements to replenish the system. 

It’s highly important this season in particular to help support the immune system fight off all those nasties. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which is always a plus point in our books!

Making sure you’re dosed up with your vitamin C also helps improve mood and cognitive function so it’s good for your mental health too.

Weakness and fatigue are some of the symptoms that could be due to insufficient Vitamin C levels. 

It helps absorb iron which is one of the most important minerals for our health. 

It’s a natural antioxidant and also helps us keep our gums and teeth nice and healthy.

So many reasons to be making sure we get enough Vitamin C! 

How do we include it in our diet? Foods high in vitamin C include citrus fruits, dark green leafy veg, bell peppers, melons & strawberries.
