Four Reasons Why Vitamin C is Important
When the cough, sniffles, and aches start, many
people will load up on extra vitamin C. Helping
boost the immune system is a familiar benefit of the
vitamin. But do you know what else vitamin C is good
for? Or how much vitamin C you need?
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble
vitamin, meaning that it doesn’t build up in body
tissues for later use like fat-soluble vitamins (A,
D, E, and K). Rather, the body uses vitamin C when
it needs it and then flushes the rest out. The
benefit of this is that there is very little risk of
toxicity from supplementation. However, that also
means we have to constantly supply the body with
vitamin C to reach effective concentrations to reap
the health benefits it can provide.

periods or even from other types of exercise, like
Staying in the poses for several minutes is
the way to get a good stretch. Many times you can
feel several different phases of opening as you stay
in a pose for longer. Don't expect overnight
changes, however. For best results, do your
stretches daily. Click
