Vitamin C is probably all agree experts, is one of the most important and most powerful ingredients. It is scientifically proven, one of the strongest antioxidants. But, as in other acclaimed concepts, and here things are not such as they are promoting…
Especially when it comes to their use in – treatment. What will happen if is not as effective cure for colds and viral load, as they say, it can certainly facilitate them, and be one of the factors that will lead to faster healing. Because it strengthens the immune system, improves the cardiovascular system, prevent pre-natal problems, reduces and slows down the wrinkles … this vitamin is an outstanding natural medicine.
A group of scientists from the University of Michigan (USA) conducted a ten-year study, with over 100 experiments. Their opinion is this:, The high content of vitamin C in the bloodstream can be a great indicator of good health. The more we study it, we are surer of its significance for our health, and its role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, problems of ophthalmic nature, on the other hand strengthening the immune system. ”
What is our issue, it is that this vitamin, unfortunately, has less and less in the store, because they are treated, frozen and defrosted, transported from one end of the world to another, where the fruit matures in tow.
Is good to know where it can still be found. Great source, for example, is rosehips (that’s a reason to walk through nature and go picking wild berries), which has 426 mg / 100 g, which is ten times more than in an advertised lemon, that it has only about 40 mg / 100 g.
Of course, this raises the logical question of the use of vitamin C from rose hips, if you do not want to eat fresh, since this vitamin is not resistant to heat and decomposes, i.e. Begins to disappear already at a temperature of 40 ° C. Also, an excellent source are green chilli peppers 244 mg, 200 mg currant, red pepper 190 mg, red chilli peppers 144 mg, 130 mg parsley, kiwi and broccoli with 90 mg, broccoli with 80 mg, and more than the lemon have the strawberries (60 mg), orange (50 mg) and even kale (41 mg) …
It’s great if you produce the fruit and vegetables or if someone close to you produce it, who will not ruin it with negligent use of so-called. plant protection, or inadequate storage. Perfect solution in every aspect, including in connection with vitamin C, is to buy organic fruits and vegetables …
The doctors of natural medicine, because of the importance of this vitamin, and approve its use in pharmaceutical production, but for very understandable reasons, recommend to take only one – in the powder. And that pure vitamin C, without added colors and fragrances. In fact, every other option is fraught with not quite harmless devices (tablet, flavor enhancers and so on.).
It is also important to know the recommended dose (100-200 mg uncontested, and all over the becomes moot), as an overdose may reflect at least on the creation of kidney stones.
Yes, vitamin C is essential to you, but not in every form, and scope.
