POP Vitamin C!
When German Scientists asked volunteers to take vitamin C, then step into a stressful situation (giving a public speech), they discovered those taking the antioxidant didn’t suffer the same spikes in stress as those who didn’t take C.
In fact, they reported feeling fearless, calm and confident!
Here’s why: Your adrenal glands are loaded with C, and making sure stores of this vitamin never go too low prevents the glands from overproduced stress hormones. What’s more, C naturally spurs oxytocin production, say researchers.
Aim for 1,000 mg. daily.
Ease Joint Pain!
Results of the Framingham Osteoarthritis Cohort Study prove that folks eating fruits high in vitamin C, such as oranges, were three times less likely to suffer from osteoarthritis compared to those who didn’t! Why? C destroy the free radical molecules that can damage connective tissue.
