Role Of Vitamin C In Sustaining Immunity

Role of Vitamin C in sustaining immunity

 

Awareness around health has increased manifold. People have been consciously planning their daily routine to devote time to exercise. When I talk to my friends and relatives, I notice that conversations regarding diet planning, mindful eating and supplement inclusion in diets to improve their overall health have increased as well.

 

During one such conversation with my cousin who is a certified dietician and nutritionist, I got to know about the importance of including food rich in Vitamin C in our daily diet. She emphasized the role of Vitamin C in building immunity.

 

Requirement of Vitamin C:[1]

 

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which humans are unable to synthesize directly. So, it is an essential dietary component. It can be added to our daily diet by including foods that naturally contain the vitamin or through Vitamin C tablets like Limcee Vitamin C Chewable Tablets 500mg as prescribed by your physician.

 

Benefits of Vitamin C:

 

  • Vitamin C aids in healing wounds.[2]
  • Regular intake of Vitamin C helps to maintain healthy bones, teeth and skin.[3]
  • Vitamin C can help improve the absorption of iron from the diet.[4]

 

Sources Of Vitamin C:

 

Fruits and vegetables are the best source of Vitamin C.[5]

 

  • Citrus fruits such as oranges, amla, lemon, and grapefruit
  • Other fruits like kiwi, strawberries, and guavas
  • Vegetables such as green and red bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and kale
  • Herbs like thyme, parsley

 

Here’s a cooking tip for you: Vitamin C in food can be destroyed by cooking the food for a long time or cooking on high heat. Since it is water soluble it can also seep into the water used while cooking so one should use little water while cooking to preserve the vitamin.[6]

 

Final thoughts:

 

Vitamin C not only helps in sustaining immunity, but is also an essential vitamin to maintain overall health of your body.[7] My doctor has prescribed Limcee Vitamin C Chewable Tablets 500mg to supplement Vitamin C intake in my body. This is how I plan to #BoostImmunityWithLimcee.

 

How are you ensuring that you’re adding the right sources of Vitamin C in your diet? Do check with your doctor and take corrective measures soon as recommended by them.
