This is the time of year when it is important to consider a few different kinds of supplements and there is often a lot of recommendation to take Vitamin C for cold prevention.
The best thing for cold prevention is to wash your hands on a VERY regular basis and avoid contact with those who are sick, if at all possible. Having said this, the Vitamin C could give you a boost if your health is poor or you are recovering from illness.
Vitamin C can help you to feel good (as does taking a multi-vitamin.)
Vitamin C also helps you to absorb iron from grains and vegetables, keeps your gums healthy, produces the tissue that helps to hold your muscles and bones together and form and repair blood, bones and other tissues.
Veggies and fruit are the best source of Vitamin C as well as fruit juice. Citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi, mangos, tomatos, romaine and peppers are high in C. Our bodies do not store vitamin C, so it is best to include these foods in your diet every day to meet your requirements.
Consult with your doctor when considering taking a supplement.
