Our Immune System
The common cold we get over, the cuts that heal, and the red, hot skin that goes away following an allergic reaction are all examples of our immune system at work protecting us. As minor as these issues may be, they can last longer than we would like them to be or take a vicious turn if our immune system is weakened. Keeping our immune system
strong even helps reduce to eliminate the chances of getting illnesses and disease. While
most people understand that we need to eat healthy as well as take our vitamins and minerals in order to look and feel good, many forget that it also supplies our immune system. Knowing which foods to eat and what stuff to take to increase your immunity matters just as much in regards to our overall health.
Benefits Vitamin C has on Immunity
Vitamin C, also known as asorbic acid, is well known as being beneficial for our immune system. It also has the ability to help our body use carbs, proteins and fats we take from our diet and metabolize it for energy. Vitaminc C is rich in antioxidants, stopping the damaging effects free radicals which are responsible for aging, cancer and a variety of adverse conditions. It is also a necessity for the absorption of iron and production of collagen, a framework for the skin of bones, to heal and cuts or wounds and regulates organ function.
Asorbic acid is needed to produce the neurotransmitter serotonin which commands our minds thoughts and feelings. Vitamin C offers many systematic uses our body is able to use to fight off viruses and bacteria while helping transport what the body needs, working as a co-transporter. The best source are found in citrus fruits, such as oranges, but there is also an adequate amount in green vegetables like as spinach, kale, and broccoli.
