Immune Support – Are you short-changing yourself?

When you wake up in the morning how do you feel? Are you more conscious of immune support in the time we are in?

As you get out of bed, is your energy good or are you dragging yourself around?

 How is your skin when you look in the mirror? Are you happy with it?

Do your teeth and gums look good or are something else going on?

Do you feel relaxed and healthy in yourself?

In other words, are you operating at your normal healthy best?

If not, then have I got good news for you?

The Missing Link

You may be overlooking a vital nutrient in your diet that can play a big part in helping you here.

If you are one of those constantly suffering from tiredness and fatigue and dragging yourself around the place, this can be a real find for you.

There is nothing worse than not having the energy to accomplish the things that are important in our life, play with the kids, go dancing, walk in nature, do some gardening, play sport, etc. Now you can do something to help with this.

Looking and Feeling Your Best

This nutrient also helps in the collagen formation in normal healthy skin and teeth, which is especially important when you want to look your best for those special occasions, important meetings, first dates, weddings, etc.

An added bonus is it aids in the normal functioning of the nervous system and our psychological function.

This is important in the modern stressful world. Our mental health can be challenged by different stresses in our lives.

For example project deadlines, mortgage problems, study, lock-downs, etc.

Vital Immune Support

The good news is it doesn’t stop there as it also aids the immune system, that invaluable protector of the body’s health, from harmful viruses and toxins that cause disease.

This can be ideal health and immune support in these challenging times…

And lastly, it also helps contribute to the health of the bones which is a big plus with bone health issues such a big concern in the world today.

The magic nutrient I am talking about is Vitamin C.

The Difference That Makes the Difference

Vitamin C came to prominence with British sailors as far back as the mid-1700. During that time foods high in this vitamin helped prevent the dreaded disease of scurvy. Almost all of the ship’s crew were wiped out on long voyages by this horrible disease. It was then British sailors were issued limes which are a high source of Vitamin C and this put an end to this scourge of the long voyages.

The Americans coined a phrase to describe the British sailors calling them “Limeys” which has lasted to this day.

My Dad Shows the Way

When I was very young my dad used to have this unusual habit. Any time he was not feeling well he would go to bed with a big bag of oranges.

He would then only eat these oranges for the rest of that day or the next and normally this would rid him of anything that ailed him.

He swore by this yet the rest of us in the family never followed suit.

The thought of eating 10 to 12 oranges a day was too much for us.

It was years later when I learned about the health-giving properties of Vitamin C. It is then I realized how smart my dad was eating Vitamin C-rich oranges.

Where he found out about this I don’t know yet it really seemed to work for him.

Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist Champions Vitamin C

Two-time Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Linus Pauling was a huge fan of Vitamin C for immune support.

He recommended it for among other things the common cold and to help us age in a better way and, personally took in up to 10,000 mg of Vitamin C a day in supplemental form and spoke at length of its benefits.

At the age of 93 he died.

The great Albert Einstein said of him: “Ah that man is a real genius”

Where to find Vitamin C

A big problem is that, unlike most animals, we as humans don’t makeup vitamin C in our bodies. This means that we have to get it through our food every day.

The best natural sources of Vitamin C come mainly from fresh fruit and vegetables. These would include oranges, lemons, limes, pineapples, kiwis, yellow peppers, parsley, and thyme.

Getting in your famous ‘five a day of fresh fruit and vegetables will go a long way in supplying your vitamin C needs.

Unfortunately, some of us may find this hard to do.

It may be a busy lifestyle, long working hours, or other factors that interfere with us doing this.

An Easy Way to Supply Your Vitamin C Needs

A great way around this is to take a Vitamin C health supplement to help make sure we are amply supplied here.

It has been long touted as an invaluable health aid in immune support.

An excellent way to start on this wonder nutrient is to try Energy-C sachets, which consist of 1000mgs of vitamin C with accompanying vitamins and minerals in powder form.

With its orange flavour it is delicious to taste. Just add a little water and you are up and running.

With all of these invaluable benefits maybe it’s time you checked it out and see for yourself what Energy-C can do for you?
