Beat Winter Colds with Vitamin C

Vitamin C blog imageWhen it gets to this time of year, it seems that colds and bugs are rife. All it takes is one person to come into work with a sniffle before the whole office are coughing and sneezing. With Christmas a few days away, the last thing anyone of us want is to spend the day looking like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. But what if I told you there was a secret to avoid the dreaded winter cold? The answer comes in one little capsuleVitamin C is an essential vitamin for both skin and body health, providing a whole host of benefits. Ensuring you have sufficient levels of vitamin C this time of year will help your body flush out any toxins, as well as building up antibodies to enable you to fight off those pesky viruses before they manifest themselves.One way to boost your vit C levels is by increasing the amount you take in through your diet. Other than the obvious one (oranges and citrus), peppers, strawberries, blackcurrants, broccoli and, the very seasonal, Brussels sprouts are also great sources of this important vitamin.However, when it comes to keeping the colds at bay, there's one thing I always reach for... the Advanced Nutrition Programme Vitamin C Plus. These capsules contain very high levels of vitamin C (1000mg), as well as 500mg of citrus bioflavonoids to assist in the function of vitamin C in the body. Packed with the required nutrients, these capsules boost your immune system, helping you to fight off illnesses and noticeably improve your health. Vitamin C also helps to reduce the feelings of tiredness and fatigue, perfect for these dark winter days, not to mention the protecting antioxidant benefits it has on the skin. I like to take two of these every morning, especially when it gets to this time of year.When we can limit our chances of catching a cold, why would you take the risk?
