A powerful immunity booster, Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that isn’t actually produced by your body (who knew!). Also known as ascorbic acid, this antioxidant-rich nutrient has manifold benefits. It protects your skin from harmful UV rays, supports your immune system, fights signs of aging, and promotes radiant, healthy skin. It is, in fact, even responsible for the production of white blood cells that fight infections in your body, and also helps keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Healthy Skin & Gums
- Supercharges Immunity
One of the key nutrients to build immunity is antioxidants, which are found in abundance in vitamin C. These antioxidants fight free radicals that are formed as a reaction of our metabolism. These radicals are the main cause of our aging process and a variety of chronic disorders. Antioxidant compounds help in reducing the rate of damage to our body by these free radicals. Hence, this nutrient helps boost immunity.
- Promotes Anti-Aging
Stressful lifestyle, processed foods and a high-salt diet lead to changes in our skin and overall health, making us age prematurely. While aging is inevitable, a regular dose of vitamin C can help slow it down. It works as an antioxidant that provides protection against free radicals and also helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
