C What this Vitamin Can Do for You


Re:Defining our health is all about getting our body to work for us, which is why the nutrients that we put in our bodies matters. Making sure we have adequate stores of what we need to function at our best. 

Most of us know the benefits vitamin C has on our immune system, but it does so much more than prevent us from getting sick.

3 Reasons to Increase your Vitamin C

1. Burn More Fat During Exercise 

“Individuals with adequate vitamin C status oxidize 30% more fat during a moderate exercise bout than individuals with low vitamin C status; thus, vitamin C depleted individuals may be more resistant to fat mass loss.”

Strategies for healthy weight loss: from vitamin C to the glycemic response

2. Avoid Burnout 

Feeling fatigued, getting sick all the time, more frustrated, less joy, and feel like you can’t handle stress well?

 Vitamin C is required by the adrenal glands to manufacture the hormones that help us cope with stress, especially cortisol. Stress depletes Vitamin C. The more cortisol is made, the more vitamin C is used.  Even with exercise, 

3. Cellulite Reduction + Faster Recovery  

Vitamin C  boosts collegen production. Collegen is connective tissue that helps retain skin, tendons, and blood vessels.  Since it strengthens our connective tissue, it is helpful for reducing the appearance of cellulite.  Vitamin C also helps lower lactic acid, so you can recover faster from your workouts. 



Should you Supplement

Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, so it gets used up quickly and excreted out.  I recommend dosing your vitamin C based the the stress you are under. If you are exercising more, under more physical, mental, emotional stress, when traveling, and during cold/flu seasons. 

I recommend eating foods high in vitamin C on a regular bases, but supplementing ensures we have enough for our body especially if you want to lose weight, are under stress, faster recovery, and sickness prevention.

Foods High in Vitamin C: Cauliflower, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Grapefruit, Brussels Sprouts, Cantaloupe, Strawberries, Lemons, and Kiwi.

I eat a healthy diet full of foods high in vitamin C, so I assumed I was getting enough.  When I was struggling to recovery from my workouts, I started supplementing with vitamin C. I quickly noticed an improvement in my recovery time as well as my skin. 

My favorite Vitamin C supplement is Lypo-spheric Vitamin C.

I hope you have a vitamin C filled day!
