Vitamin C

Posted 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.

“Darla is a great trainer and fitness coach. When I first became a client, I was recovering from a shoulder injury. She made sure my routine was appropriate and continued to coach me to greater levels of stamina and strength. And, the cool thing is that she truly cares about what I want to accomplish. Now four years later, my doctor informed me that my “age markers” were those of someone 20 years younger than my chronological age.”
