Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and an essential nutrient, meaning our bodies can't make it and we must obtain it from our diets. Specifically, vitamin C:

  1. Plays a central role in the repair and regeneration of tissues.
  2. Helps protect cells from everyday oxidative stress throughout the body.
  3. May support healthy immune function.

Getting vitamin C through your diet is easy - food sources are abundant and can be enjoyed all year long: try increasing your intake of broccoli, cantaloupe, kiwi, oranges, peppers, pineapple, pink grapefruit and strawberries. Supplemental vitamin C is another option - I suggest a vitamin C supplement derived from d-glucose, taken with a meal to reduce any stomach irritation.
