Another important fact about vitamin C is we can see many of these vitamin deficiencies around people.

I don’t know how people have vitamin c deficiencies when many foods around us contain this vitamin.


When you have vitamin c deficiency you will have a weak immune system and it will cause high chances of getting some diseases to you


Here is another important thing for you.

Vitamin c is a water-soluble vitamin and it has less storage capacity. Unless you take vitamin c constantly you can have vitamin deficiencies within a small time.


It is also a very powerful antioxidant. It is very important for free radicles.

Anyone interested in beauty definitely should aware of the free radicle. So a free radicle means a molecule that contains one valence. Those molecules are hyperactive and can react with more molecules throughout the body.

Sometimes they can also react with DNA also.


What vitamin C can do free radicles


It can donate electrons to the free radicles. Then they cannot react with molecules in the body.


Immunity benefits from vitamin c


Enhance antibody


The antibody is a protein that can fight pathogens. Pathogens means the microbes that shouldn’t be in your body.

I think since this COVID situation you guys have heard about this antibody through most of the news.

When a COVID-like virus infected your body, your body starts to fight with the virus, and antibodies are being used. In a situation like this, we need so many antibodies and so much vitamin c.


So I think now you can understand why doctors ask you to make vitamin c during this period.

Neutrophil mortality


A neutrophil is a type of white blood cell and it kills some pathogen microbes in your body.

Vitamin C can speed up your neutrophils’ mortality, so it can help you get protected from any pathogen attach.


Enhance your B cells


B cells are a type of lymphocyte that can be identified as a type of white blood cell. That can increase your antibodies and that will indirectly affect to improve your immunity.


Enhance T cells


It is also the type of lymphocyte that can help you to fight pathogens.


Increase interferon


Interferon is a hormone that can kill infected cells. SO that will automatically protect the neighboring cells in the body.


So Guys I think no you can understand that how vitamin c is important to your immune system.

I think I should give you an idea about how to identify vitamin c deficiency also.


You can see scurvy


This can be seen in many stages. This can be a clinical condition also. This can easily identify by observing your teeth.


Scurvy can increase the susceptibility to increase the infections
You can have pneumonia-like diseases easily.

So please take this vitamin c. Because you can take this naturally by taking vegetables and it will not cost you much. If you really can’t take my food take some high-quality supplements.


In a pandemic situation, you need more vitamins to see than the normal dosage.

The reason for that is your white blood cells need vitamin c to fight against pathogens. If you take normal dosage during an epidemic situation you may see an increment of scurvy due to the deficiency.


So as I explained above deficiency can happen due to two reasons.

One is you don’t take enough vitamin c as your food and the other thing can be you have an infection.

So here I am going to mention the most important thing that you waited so long. The dosage of vitamin c for the day.


You need to take at least 200mg of vitamin c for a day.

You can take more than this amount because vitamin c is water-soluble and if your body doesn’t want it will remove from the body. In a situation like this, it is better to take more of this vitamin .

So here is another important thing

The foods that contain a high amount of vitamin

  • Sauerkraut
  • Leafy greens
  • Bell peppers
  • Hot peppers

Remember


If you want to take vitamin c supplements please take whole-food-based complex ones not synthetic ones.


Conclusion


Take more than 200mg and if you like improve the dosage in an epidemic situation

You can take vitamin c form from food or from supplements. If you use supplements take food-based natural ones.


It can improve your immunity system in different ways
and can protect your body from free radicals.
