Should You Supplement With Vitamin C For Glorious Skin?
Healthy Beauty-Style Guide, by Lisa D Liguori ~ Good To Know ~
You want to promote smooth, supple skin? To prevent pre-mature or unnecessary skin wrinkling? Take extra Vitamin C.
Vitamin C offers protection against skin wrinkling.
It is one of the many anti-oxidants that can protect against damaging free radicals, toxic chemicals and cigarette smoke, all of which age your skin faster and more dramatically than necessary.
This my friend, is protection from early onset of skin wrinkling, and perhaps even has the potential to eliminate excessive facial lines overall.
Vitamin C works on your cells from the inside out.
*A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined links between nutrient intakes and skin aging in 4,025 women aged 40-74. It found that higher vitamin C intakes were associated with a lower likelihood of a wrinkled appearance, dryness of the skin, and a better skin-aging appearance.
Vitamin C is the safest and most effective nutrient to supplement with. You will want to choose a non-acidic buffered from to protect sensitive tummies.
The ideal dosage is waaaay higher than the recommended dietary allowances which is a mere 60 milligrams. Better to take 500 to 1000 milligrams. There is no danger of overdosing, as it does not build up in your system. I personally, take 1000 mg daily. Sometimes I take it in pill form, and other days, I mix a powder into my fresh juice or smoothie.
This is, of course, in addition to eating your five servings of fruits and veggies.
The outdated RDA was established, so many years ago, not for optimum health, but to avoid disease. We are way past that now, aren’t we? You bet! We want more than to just avoid disease. We want glorious health, and skin.
