Use Vitamin C to fight off Winters Woes
This winter, be sure to include plenty of vitamin C in your diet. Found in foods such as oranges, peppers, pineapples, strawberries, vitamin C can boost your immune system and is important in forming collagen, a protein that gives structure to bones, cartilage, muscle, and blood vessels. It also helps to maintain capillaries, bones, and teeth and aids in the absorption of iron. Keeping your immune system at peak ability will help keep you from too much down time due to illness.
