Quick guide to Vitamin C

It is also known as Ascorbic Acid

It is water soluble - and easily absorbed into our blood streams. However, it also means the body
removes it easily and therefore you need to include this nutrient in your daily dietary intake.

It contributes to the normal health and function of bones, teeth, cartilage, gums, skin, blood vessels.

Vitamin C deficiency is known as scurvy.

You should always consult a medical professional before taking vitamin supplements as certain medicines. like Niacin, prescribed hormones, as well as medications for blood clotting, and some anti-depressants shouldn’t be combined with a high dose of vitamin C. Be aware.

Humans, primates and guinea pigs are the only mammals unable to produce their own vitamin C. We get it all from our diets.

Too much vitamin C can have unpleasant side effects including diarrhea, nausea, and heartburn.

Best sources of Vitamin C are vegetables and fruits. Another reason to include them in your daily nutrition.

Saturday 1st August 2020 - determined to put two entries a day on from tomorrow

Hello everyone.

A couple of months ago - on the 31st May - I said I would start making daily entries on this blog, that we promote in our health packs.  We have a lot of fantastic entries, covering a range of subjects, around Mind-set, Nutrition, Exercise and Routine already.

Instead I got focused on our health packs, and have contributed little here since then. This will change in August.  I have been seriously neglectful. And there is so much info to add.

Look out for more blog pieces on studies and research, as well as guidance and facts.

Thanks to everyone who comes onto the blog.  Please keep supporting us.

Yay!!!  Lazza
