4 hidden benefits of Vitamin C you should know

I have been back at work for a few months now. In the beginning, it was amazing because I got to meet a few of my colleagues and I got to leave the house. But slowly, I realized that all the good habits I had developed while working from home: exercising, eating home-cooked meals, sleeping on time, less screen time, etc. were all going for a toss.

So, I researched different ways how I could continue to stay healthy. I am happy to report that I found simple ways to reach my goal.

It took me a while to craft a routine for myself that I could sustain now that I was back at work. Instead of exercising every day, I shifted it to twice a week. I added more home-cooked meals to my daily diet. Reducing screen time has been the hardest, but I’m working on it.

While doing my research, I realized that one of the key ways to ensure your well-being is through building immunity. Strong immunity will keep diseases at bay and help you in leading a good life. You can get there in many ways, and one of them is Vitamin C.

4 Hidden Benefits of Vitamin C:

May help you beat cold faster:[1]

Vitamin C may help to reduce the duration of cold symptoms.[2] Isn’t that great!

The best “cell service” for your body:[3]

What that means is, Vitamin C does immense service to your body’s cells. How?

Pollution and smoking create harmful free radicles and Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to neutralize the free radicles. [4]

Vitamin C is good for skin: [5]

How Vitamin C helps the body and your skin? Your body needs Vitamin C to make bones, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels, etc. Not just new skin, this vitamin helps in repairing skin when you get cuts and also helps you avoid wrinkles.

While I believe in adding Vitamin C to my body through natural sources, I also understand that with so many tasks demanding my attention, it may not be as much as my body needs. I read about supplementing Vitamin C through other sources and asked my physician whether I needed them; she assessed my diet and routine and then suggested Limcee Vitamin C Chewable Tablets 500mg. I realized that not only will I be able to #BoostImmunityWithLimcee but also sustain it.

What this entire exercise has taught me is that when I take charge of my body and health, I can lead a good life. It is not enough to take half-hearted measures with one’s health. Thankfully, I took corrective measures to ensure I remain healthy.

I end this post by sharing my health mantra: Healthy body = Healthy life! What is your health mantra?
