I have a mini panic attack every time I sneeze a couple of times in a row or start sniffling. Am I getting sick? No, I can’t get sick; I have too much to do! Sometimes it’s just a reaction to an irritant, but sometimes it’s my body’s way of telling me to pay attention. Either way, I listen, and I start boosting my immunity system with extra Vitamin C.
Do you know the best ways to get more vitamin C in your diet?
Since Vitamin C can contribute to a healthy immune system, you’re probably incorporating it in at least one way, but you might want to step it up a notch. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that deactivates the “nasty” radicals that can destroy DNA, proteins and lipids in the body.
So, ensuring it’s a part of your diet is important for your immunity and overall health.
How to Get More Vitamin C in Your Diet
Although most of us think of orange juice and citrus fruits the moment Vitamin C is mentioned, there are lots of other healthy fruits and vegetables offering a rich source of the vitamin as well. Strawberries, papaya, guava, pineapple, kiwi, raspberries, cantaloupe and pomegranates as well as veggies like bell peppers, kale, broccoli, kohlrabi and Brussels sprouts all serve as excellent Vitamin C sources.
Taking a multi-vitamin with the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C or even a Vitamin C supplement on its own can balance out those days when you’re not able to get it solely through your food. I take a daily multi-vitamin, but when my body is feeling fatigued and slightly under the weather, the Vitamin C boost in Ricola herbal immunity lozenges can help my immunity system fight more effectively. Ricola Herbal Immunity Lozenges are the first widely available immunity product in the US that fights fatigue, while also supporting the immune system.
