Vitamin C plays a major role in maintaining human health and is found in fruits and fresh vegetables. It helps to stimulate the immune system and also helps in the prevention of colds, coughs, sore throats, and contributes to the healing of wounds and the maintenance of healthy skin.
One of the most important benefits of vitamin C is the effect it has on blood vessels since it helps in dilation (expansion). This lowers the blood pressure and promotes a healthy heart. Vitamin C is considered to be an antioxidant; it also protects the eyes and reduces the risk of cataracts.
Some of its remarkable benefits are the prevention of asthma attacks and the protection of the lungs and airways. It also helps to reduce the effects of diabetes and some cancers even though it is not a cure for these diseases. Vitamin C helps as well to decrease the amount of low density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood. Remember, it’s your life, your future, YOUR HEALTH FIRST.
