When it comes to helping to protect you against the stresses and strains of modern life, life armour supplements have been designed to do just that. That's why our Drops of Immunity+ tincture, has been reformulated to include 100% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant, known for a variety of physical and mental benefits. So we've put together the reasons why life armour decided Vitamin C to be a great addition to the great-tasting adaptogenic blend of Drops of Immunity+.
1. Vitamin C can contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
Have you been feeling a bit 'meh' recently? Vitamin C is a great way to keep your energy levels consistent, and avoid those dips we can often experience.
This is because Vitamin C helps our bodies to create more L-Carnitine - the molecule that turns fat into energy. If our bodies aren't creating enough L-Carnitine, it's harder for us to burn fat, meaning less fuel for our energy levels to use and that means - you guessed it - more feelings of tiredness and fatigue.
When it comes to reducing low energy levels, Vitamin C sure packs a punch!
2.Vitamin C contributes to normal release of energy for use in the body
If you consider yourself a bit of a busy-body, you'll know the feeling when you suddenly encounter an energy slump and you day-dream about sleeping! Vitamin C helps to distribute energy around the body, so that every inch of you is able to stay active and alert. This is because it aids the breakdown of fats being used as energy fuel in the body, helping us to move around easier and more frequently.
3. Vitamin C contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
Our nervous system is what controls the everyday, automatic motions such as taking an inhale or moving our arms to pick something up. It's responsible for all sensations we feel and responses we make naturally, so it's important we look after our central and peripheral nervous system as we grow older.
Having Vitamin C daily over a longer period of time, can help to support our mood, and who doesn't want to feel happier.
4. Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system
Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, work as helping hands to support our immune systems.So the more antioxidants our bodies receive daily such as Vitamin C - through diet or supplementation - the more our immune systems can work to successfully protect us from bugs throughout the year.
5. Vitamin C contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise
A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found participants who supplemented 1000mg of Vitamin C before 30 minutes of moderate exercise, showed increased antioxidant capacity in the body after exercising.
Exercise has it's own benefits both inside and outside the body, but a quick dose of Vitamin C prior to working out helps to give our immune system the support it loves to receive.
6. Vitamin C contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
Oxidative stress is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage. It's very much part of nature's ageing process however with the strains of modern life, many of us face an increasing vulnerability to oxidative stress.
It's not just aches and pains, it can also be shown in the skin of our faces! Did you know that without Vitamin C, it's increasingly difficult for our skin cells to create more collagen - the abundant protein that builds our skin, tendons and muscles? This is because oxidative stress can cause skin fibres to become disorganised - a daily dose of Vitamin C can help combat the negative effects of free radicals in the body.
Getting your daily dose of Vitamin C through a daily supplement such as Drops of Immunity+ is a quick and effective way to feel more energised on the outside and inside. life armour's alcohol free tincture gets to work in under 20 minutes - simply pop a pipette full under the tongue or dilute in water or your morning smoothie and you're good to go!
