Importance of Vitamin C


It's getting to be that time of year where it still isn't quite warm enough to be outside all of the time, and we find ourselves stuck in close quarters.  This is when a lot of people tend to get sick.  It's important to prevent sickness before you're stuck with it. Vitamin C helps to boost your immune system. Vitamin C also has many other positive health effects:
Strengthens your nails
Fights signs of aging
Lightens up dark spots
Makes you feel more energized
Lengthens your nails
