Vitamin C for Immunity - Fast&Up

For protecting your daily immunity, Vitamin C or Ascorbic acid plays a very extensive role. How? The White Blood Cells are an important component in the body. There are a variety of these cells which ward off bacteria and viruses in their own way. What vitamin C does here is that it promotes the production of these White Blood Cells and ensures that they function efficiently. Furthermore it aids in the production of antibodies and provides antioxidant protection that fights pathogens. At times when one gets a cut or wound, chances of infection are higher. Vitamin C helps produce collagen, a component that is crucial for proper healing of wounds, mitigating the chances of an infection.

Stress plays a huge role in our immunity. Cortisol is a hormone that is released during stress which is responsible for our stress response. A controlled level of cortisol in the body can be beneficial for regulating metabolism, blood sugar levels and inflammation. A higher level of cortisol can lead to high blood sugar levels and deplete energy in the body. Consuming Vitamin C clears out excessive cortisol in the body to keep stress levels in control thus impacting on a healthy immunity.

Since our bodies can not produce Vitamin C on its own, one needs to consume essential foods or supplements in order to get Vitamin C. Guavas, bell peppers, citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwis and broccoli are some rich sources of Vitamin C. Other sources are supplements that one can consume on a regular basis after consulting your doctor.
