What makes Vitamin C 1000mg so good for you?

McNab’s Vitamin C assists the immune system in optimal functioning and helps protect the body from harmful pathogens and fight infections. McNab’s Vitamin C supplements boost immunity and the dose of 1000mg is a great way to keep yourself healthy and strong any time of the year. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that can boost your blood antioxidant levels. This may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease. Vitamin C supplements have been found to lower blood pressure in both healthy adults and those with high blood pressure. Vitamin C can improve the absorption of iron that is poorly absorbed, such as iron from meat-free sources. It may also reduce the risk of iron deficiency.

Vitamin C supplements have been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease. These supplements may lower heart disease risk factors, including high blood levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides. Vitamin-C-rich foods and supplements have been linked to reduced blood uric acid levels and lower risk of gout. Low vitamin C levels have been linked to an increased risk of memory and thinking disorders like dementia, while a high intake of vitamin C from foods and supplements has been shown to have a protective effect.

What weakens the immune system?

Emotional stress, poor diets, lack of exercise, relaxation and sleep, substance abuse, smoking, and certain diseases and medications all contribute to a weakened immune system. When your immune system is compromised it is easy to pick up bugs from infected people, especially in confined spaces like offices, trains, buses and aeroplanes.

You can help to protect yourself by addressing these factors, particularly by eating plenty of vegetables, fruits and whole grains, minimising your intake of refined carbohydrates and sugar, sleeping at least seven hours a night, exercising at least three times a week, and making time to play. Playing is as important to adults as it is to children and is one of the best ways to address stress and bring joy back into your life.

You can also take an appropriate immune-boosting supplement, like McNab’s Vitamin C to make sure nutritional deficiencies aren’t compromising your defences against disease.
