All about DHA Supplements

Immune System With Vitamin C

The vitamin C deficiency that resulted from this practice caused sailors to come down with a sometimes-deadly disease called scurvy.

Indeed the list of potential ailments due to a deficiency of vitamin C are numerous, including anemia, bleeding gums and nose, inability to fight infection and gingivitis, easy bruising, swollen and painful joints and weakened tooth enamel. In response, the British navy stocked their ships with lemons and limes and included the juice from these fruits in the meals of sailors on their ships. The ‘limeys’ were able to keep their vitamin C intake high enough for their sailors to stay healthy over long journeys.

Vitamin C is not manufactured by other elements inside the body, so we must rely on food sources to maintain an adequate supply. Thankfully, you can find a wide variety of foods that are rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is water-soluble and it is not stored in the body. Excess amounts are flushed out through the urine, and we must maintain a steady supply to support normal growth and development.

Eggs are a brilliant breakfast food as they contain essential amino acids in the ideal ratio, making them the ‘perfect protein.’ Other great breakfast proteins include yoghurt, lean (grilled bacon), nuts, beans and lentils.
