Vitamin C & D for Women

No one can deny it. Vitamin C’s are very important & Vitamin D’s are essential in part of our lives. So what exactly are they and how much is recommended daily:

VITAMIN C

What it is: An essential vitamin.

What it does: At the first sign of a tickle in your throat you probably start main-lining the C. That’s good, because the vitamin has been suggested to help support immune system function. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is also involved in the synthesis of hormones, amino acids and collagen and, on top of all that, it destroys free radicals, created from exercise and other stressors, that break down nitric oxide. Sparing NO from free-radicals helps support higher NO levels, and higher NO levels may promote increased muscle endurance, a reduction in exercise-enduced fatigue and increased support for lean muscle growth and strength.

How to take it: Take 1,000 mg twice a day with meals.

VITAMIN D

What it is: The sunshine vitamin.

What it does: New research keeps coming; most of it supporting Vitamin D’s ample health benefits. Vitamin D is associated with greater muscle strength – interacting with receptors on muscle fibers to activate genes that increase muscle strength and growth. As a plus, D may help support fat loss, especially when taken in conjunction with calcium.

How to take it: Take about 2,000 international units of vitamin D twice per day at the same time you take calcium.
Else, go out in the Sun! Enjoy the natural Vitamin D.
But PLS, don’t forget to put some sun-block on your sensitive areas of the face/body.
Remember: Too much is not so good :)
