Vitamin C strengthens your immune system and protects the body from colds and flu, so you must regularly ingest it. Given the warnings from the doctors, many of us do not pay attention to the nutrition we take.
Here are some of the signs that you are not taking enough vitamin C:
The most obvious sign is the fact that you get sick easily. Without the necessary dose of vitamin C you won’t have enough white blood cells that attack bacteria and viruses, thus protecting the body against colds and flu will be endangered.
If you are tired, ill-tempered and sleepy, it may be related to a deficiency of this vitamin. Numerous studies done on patients struggling with anxiety show that their mood gets better by 34% after they ingest vitamin C.
The lack of this vitamin can also affect the connective tissues which do not recover at normal speed and thus heal more slowly. Without this vitamin, your joints will be in bad shape, they’ll be swollen and painful, and your body may produce bruises.
Another clear sign if your hair and skin are dry, is that your body does not have enough vitamin C.
Consume more broccoli, cabbage and citron to increase the amount of vitamin C in the body. You can also eat fresh fruit and drink natural juices.
