Have you ever wondered why vitamin C is so important? If not, it’s time to start thinking about it and include this valuable vitamin in your diet. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and strong antioxidant. It helps the body produce collagen and absorb Iron. Vitamin C deficiency causes hair loss, dry skin, bleeding gums and wounds to heal slowly. The importance of vitamin C is increased during the wintertime as it helps prevent your body from getting cold, protects you from different viruses and also maintains your immune system.
You can take supplements containing vitamin C to increase your daily intake which is an easy option to follow. Alternatively, let’s have a look at foods which are high in vitamin C and can diversify your diet and boost your mood.
It is worth remembering that fermented foods, especially those made with cabbage, are an amazing source of vitamin C. Also, fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut or carrots help your stomach grow good bacteria. Therefore, fermented vegetables help your body not only increase the intake of vitamin C but also maintain a healthy digestive system and boost the absorptions of other vitamins. Healthy stomach -> healthy mind -> healthy you!
