Vitamin CPosted in Vitamins
In case it has slipped your mind or you have not yet been informed, I’d like to recall the many important functions of vitamin C. It assists with the formation of collagen, the “intercellular glue”. It protects against stress, pollutants and free radical damage. It is a potent antioxidant. Deficiency can be expressed in tooth decay, soft and bleeding gums, capillary weakness, tender painful swollen joints, reduced secretion of adrenals, just to name a few. We cannot produce it ourselves, so we’ll have to eat it. Some foods include citrus fruits, berries, melons, cabbage, parsley, potatoes, (yes I said potatoes) and peppers.
You can take it in supplement form, which are best when they include bioflavanoids, sometimes referred to as vitamin P.
