The Immune System benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is well known for its vital role in the immune system. This water soluble nutrient is also necessary for the production of collagen, which is a structural protein found in connective tissue. As a result, vitamin C is important for skin, bone, and joint health. Here are some of the ways that vitamin C can benefit your immune system.
Reduces the Severity and Duration of Illness*
Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of illness. In one study, researchers found that people who took a vitamin C supplement reduced their risk of developing a cold by 50%. In another study, people who took a vitamin C supplement were found to have a shorter duration of cold symptoms by 8% compared to those who did not take a supplement.
These studies suggest that vitamin C may help to reduce the severity and duration of illness. However, it’s important to note that more research is needed in this area.
Vitamin C is involved in many functions within the immune system. It helps to protect cells from damage, produces antibodies, and helps white blood cells function properly.
Some research suggests that vitamin D supplementation may help to boost immunity in people who are deficient in vitamin D.
Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen, which is a protein that helps to give your skin its structure. Collagen also helps to heal wounds. Vitamin C has been shown to aid wound healing in people with diabetes and pressure ulcers. However, more research is needed in this area.
Vitamin C has many immune system benefits such as reducing the severity and duration of illness, boosting immunity, and aiding wound healing. If you’re looking to increase your intake of vitamin C, you can do so by eating foods such as citrus fruits, strawberries, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts. You can also take a supplement to ensure that you are getting enough in your diet.
