Whenever you develop the sniffles or begin coughing a lotâ€š you may reach for a cough drop or over-the-counter medication that contains vitamin C. This is because vitamin C is not only a rich source of antioxidantsâ€š but also helps the body fight off bacterial infections by boosting the immune system.
Vitamin C is commonly found in citrus fruits like orangesâ€š tomatoesâ€š strawberries and fortified cereals. It can be difficult to consume an adequate amount of the nutrient on a daily basisâ€š especially if you have an allergy. In these casesâ€š you may have to take a supplement to get the amount of vitamin C your body needs. Unfortunatelyâ€š many supplements extract vitamin C from one of these dietary sourcesâ€š which also puts you at risk of uncomfortable allergic reactions.
