Vitamin C

What is Vitamin C good for?

Vitamin C is best known for its cold-fighting and immune-strengthening properties as well as its importance in the growth, development, and repair of the human body. We know that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and this is because it is an ‘electron giver’. 

When it comes to safeguarding your health, vitamin C supports nearly every system in your body, like:
1. Collagen formation and healthy skin, (think no wrinkles).
2. Reducing free radicles and oxidative stress which contributes to disease.
3. Immune function to help fight infections.
4. Helps with colds and flu.
5. It helps form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and collagen in bones.
6. Adrenal glands have the highest levels of vitamin C in the body, which shows how important vitamin C is for stress!
Vitamin C is the body’s stress reliever!

How much Vitamin C should I take daily?

The recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals, in my eyes, is way too low and as a result, most states of chronic disease are actually a deficiency in electrons which contribute to chronic inflammation or oxidative stress, yes, low-grade inflammation means chronic disease. 

Due to vitamin C being an electron giver it can lower the oxidative stress and inflammation that builds up in our bodies from the processed foods we consume in our day to day lives, these foods deplete our bodies of important antioxidant electrons, which are vital for the recuperation of our bodies. Smokers have lower levels of vitamin C in their blood than non-smokers due to the damage that the smoke causes to the body!

The secret with Vitamin C is the earlier you take it the more effective it will be. While the RDA of Vitamin C is very small and ineffective when sick, my advice is to always take vitamin C in divided doses throughout the day to prevent episodes of diarrhoea. The best form in which to take Vitamin C is Liposomal Vitamin C as this is more bioavailable and reduces any potential gastric side effects.
My advice is to start taking 2000mg daily of a Liposomal Vitamin C in divided doses and to review


How well is your Vitamin C absorbed?

However there is a problem with vitamin C, is it absorbed or does most of your Vitamin C go into your toilet as expensive urine?
Vitamin C supplements are also often highly acidic which can upset your stomach.
So the important question is, does your Vitamin C get into the cell?
Vitamunda Vitamin C is liposomal, has no toxins or sweeteners, and avoids all of these issues.
If you want the powerful antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C in your body’s cells that doesn’t end up being flushed down your toilet, choose Vitamunda Vitamin C!

Let Vitamin C help you recover from all that inflammation in your body.
