     Vitamin C

     The claim that Vitamin C is a super nutrient and boosts immunity is debatable. People have been taking it for years thinking it helps stop colds and the flu.

    Vitamin C helps your body make collagen (good for skin and bones), absorb iron (good for muscle growth), and create carnitine (good for turning dietary fat into energy). It is also an antioxidant which helps combat free radicals caused by chronic stress and protect your immune cells as they fight off infection.

    Vitamin C may shorten the duration of a cold but does not boost immunity. It may also lower your risk of sickness after prolonged physical strain like running a marathon. Research has not shown it can fight Covid-19.

    (Did You Know? Besides oranges, other good sources of Vitamin C are kiwi, guava, strawberries, Brussel sprouts, red bell pepper, broccoli, and potatoes.)

     It is recommended to consume 200-400 mg of Vitamin C each day. Unlike vitamins B12 and K, your body does NOT store Vitamin C.

    If you’re looking to boost your immune system, getting a good amount of sleep helps to maintain immunity.

     I made a delicious breakfast over the weekend by crossing avocado toast with bacon and eggs. Using guacamole given to me by my office Secret Santa, I put that on top of an over easy egg that was on top of whole wheat toast. With bacon on the side, who needs to go out for breakfast?


    “I felt I was cared for from beginning to end by the kind, knowledgeable & pleasant staff. Good job all of you!” S.F.
