Vitamin C is essential to keep your immune system healthy. But your body cannot produce vitamin C, so you have to get it from food or supplements daily.
Vitamin C is water-soluble, so you can dissolve it in water and drink it throughout the day. It is better to take it in powder form than tablet form since tablets/pills contain other filters in order to solidify them. You don’t want these additional filter chemicals such as silica.
Vitamin C aids in the production of white blood cells such as lymphocytes and phagocytes. It is a powerful antioxidant protecting our white blood cells and helping them repair quickly. The cells in our immune system and accumulate and need vitamin C to carry out their function, especially phagocytes and t-cells.
In short, vitamin C is essential in maintaining healthy immune system and fighting infection and pathogens like Covid-19.
Skin & Nail Health
Vitamin C is also critical in skin and nail health. If you want to keep your skin firm and young, you must have sufficient vitamin C in your body. It gets transported to the skin and protects the skin from oxidative stress and fortifies the skin’s barriers. It also aids in production fo collagen and also in speedy healing of wounds.
Blood pressure and Heart Health
It helps in lowering blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels.
In a study, it was also shown that vitamin C reduced LDL (bad) cholesterol by approximately 7.9 mg/dL and blood triglycerides by 20.1 mg/dL.
Helps Prevent Anemia
Vitamin C helps the absorption of non-heme iron in the body from vegetables such as beans, spinach and quinoa. Plant-based iron tend to be poorly absorbed. Consuming 100 mg of vitamin C will improve the absorption by 67%.
So far, this is one of the best Vitamin C powder I found on Amazon. I put a tea spoonful (500mg-1,000mg roughly) in my water or juice and drink throughout the day. It is best to spread the intake over time. Taking it all at once could diarrhea.
