A, B, C.... well, you know the rest. A simple, single, tiny letter with so much power over the human inner workings. We turn to it in most cases simply to rid our bodies of a cold or flu. But have you ever thought about the effects of taking vitamin C daily, for the rest of your life? It is more than a simple letter, and more than a water soluble molecule. It's a warrior!
Okay, for starters let's call our warrior Ascorbic Acid. Where can you find them in nature? They are abundant in fruits and vegetables. As mentioned before C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that your body will absorb what it needs and the rest you flush out by natural means. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that plays a role in forming and maintaining connective tissues in the body such as; bones, blood vessels, and even your skin. So not only does it play a role in the formation and maintenance of those things in the body, it also aides in the repair and regeneration of tissues while also aiding the absorption of iron while also, aiding in the decrease of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Whoa! Talk about literally being busier than a bee! And they are born to work until the day they die! Alright, nonsense aside, I want to talk about some of the other benefits outside lessening the common cold and cool molecular bonding.
