Vitamin C. Why you need it?

Vitamin C is hailed the Queen of immunity-boosting vitamins helping us stay strong when surrounded by cold and flu's. But that's not all it's good for!

Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that supports our body in an array of ways such as:

  • Helping skin health and longevity by protecting our body from oxidative stress and damage
  • Helps protect our body from attacks in the first place, and secondly, by helping us to fight off infections quicker.
  • Healing tissue, maintaining blood vessels, and growing bones, ligaments, and skin
  • Increases the absorption of iron

Great news huh?

How do we make sure we are getting enough of this hero micronutrient?

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient meaning our bodies can't make it naturally, so we need to get it from foods and supplements.

Eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in Vitamin C is one of the best ways to get in this super nutrient as not only do you get in the Vitamin C but also numerous other vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, minerals, and fibre that come with it.

Blackcurrants (our fave), citrus fruits, capsicums and kiwifruit are great sources of Vitamin C... when they've been freshly picked! 80% of the water-soluble vitamins in produce are lost within four days of harvest. So unless we are shopping locally and seasonally it's unlikely we are eating produce within this timeframe.

It can then be tricky to get it from food alone! Lucky our Shots are freeze-dried, locking in the nutrient value of the plants.

The Ministry of Health recommended daily intake of Vitamin C for adults is 45mg. One Double Shot contains 51mg of vitamin, 127% of your RDI!

“I have been taking my shots for about 2 months now. After being sick 8 times this year with colds (yes 8 times!) I was almost at my wits end. Catching public transport to and from work and working in an office open floor plan have not helped when other people cough over you all the time. However, since I started taking my shots every day I haven’t had ONE cold!!!! It has been such a relief and everyone has noticed how much more energy I have (looking a lot brighter in the skin). My partner noticed so much and now he’s hooked too!!! I also got three other colleagues into them.”

“In the mornings I used to drag myself out of bed and felt like I had been run over by a bus. It usually took me a strong coffee and half an hour of just sitting to wake up properly. After about two weeks of taking the shots I noticed I was getting up feeling energised and ready for the day. It has really helped to maintain energy levels throughout the day and I am more inclined to be active as I have more energy! Amazing! I feel content that I am supporting and nourishing my body for myself, my family and my future health.”

“This product is so amazing. I’ve had a coffee everyday in hand daily (twice sometimes) just to survive since having my first baby 17months ago. I’ve only been taking this for a week, sometimes twice a day depending on how busy the day is, and even after having less than 5hours sleep most times, I no longer NEED coffee and have energy to work nightshift without coffee, no after noon slump, the list of benefits goes on. Thank you so much 🙂 So Grateful.”
