Six Supplements for Better Health and to Boost Immunity

Vitamin C is a healing agent.

Vitamin C helps fend off colds and illnesses due to its ability to speed the production of new cells in wound healing, thus protecting your immune system and helping you fight off infection. Vitamin C also helps prevent cancer, reduce the severity of allergic reactions, protect against the harmful effects of pollution, produce anti-stress hormones, and play a role in keeping your hormones working.

The body doesn’t manufacture vitamin C, so you must get it through diet or supplementation. Some natural sources of vitamin C include berries, citrus fruits, and green vegetables. However, if you get colds or bronchial infections frequently, experience prolonged healing time, bruise easily, have gums that bleed when brushed, or if you feel a cold or illness coming on, you may want to take some vitamin C supplements.
