WHAT IS IT & WHY SHOULD YOU BE USING IT?
There’s a reason that Vitamin C seems to be recommended and advertised almost everywhere you look in the health community. It’s one of the most vital components of health and well-being. Incorporating a proper amount into your diet can strengthen your immune system, assist the body in burning excess fat and has even been shown to have a correlation in lowering the risk of heart disease.
A proper dietary intake has also been shown to help repair damaged hair and minimise wrinkles and dryness in the skin. It even aids the body in strenuous tasks such as pregnancy or from surgery. These individual perks come together and have a positive effect on your overall mood and they improve your stamina and capability throughout the day.
Vitamin C is one of the most crucial ingredients for revitalising the skin, which is why you should try to incorporate it in to your skincare routine as much as possible. Its antioxidant properties not only make it a vital molecule for skin health but out bodies also need it to produce collagen.
High levels of the vitamin are naturally present in both the dermis and epidermis of the skin; however, ageing causes a decline in Vitamin C content.
Applying Vitamin C to the skin topically in the form of serums, masks and moisturisers promises to keep skin looking younger and more radiant for longer.
While consuming fruits and vegetables is an easy way to consume an optimal amount of Vitamin C, the intramuscular route allows much higher doses to be administered, bypassing the GI tract and allowing up to 100% absorption. This more efficient method is the recommended option in situations when the immune system needs a little extra help.
Characteristic symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include:
Swollen and bleeding gums
Poor wound healing
Poor immune system
Dry, damaged skin
Unexplained weight gain
Colds & Flu
Vitamin C provides a powerful boost to your immune system, which helps protect from the threat of cold and flu. However, in situations when it’s too late and the virus has already kicked in, the body becomes so preoccupied with fighting it that Vitamin C levels can fall significantly. Under this circumstance, a Vitamin C shot will give patients a massive boost with a quick reaction, assisting the body on the road to a faster recovery.
Dreaded allergy symptoms are often the main thing that stands in the way of enjoying the spring and summer season. A proper dosage of Vitamin C helps stabilise the immune system by neutralising the extreme reaction that the body has to histamines. It also serves as a natural, non-toxic alternative, free of side effects that other antihistamine medication may come with.
