Does Vitamin C ward off colds? Yes, if you exercise!
Thursday, October 31, 2013
My little one has been up for the last 3 nights - she just seemed grumpy, not coughing, not sneezing, no fever. Now, I'm getting grumpy - mommy needs some sleep! Today, though, her cough started.
I have been exercising faithfully since school started for my older daughter, and I have not been sick! It's amazing. Usually I get sick right along with the girls.
Anyway, I am taking yummy Centrum gummy vitamins with immunity support that have a hefty dose of Vitamin C and I'm curious if that may be helping a bit. In addition, I am exercising every day.
So, I did some research on Vitamin C here: www.dailymail.co.uk/heal
"The researchers discovered that it halved the risk of catching a cold among people under short term physical stress, such as exercise. "
The study says men do need to be aware that Vitamin C is also thought to be linked to kidney stones for them.
Anyway, I am going to work out and take my vitamins today. Yay for exercise and yay for vitamin C!
Hope you all have a happy and healthy Halloween.
And, do me a favor, repeat after me, "No rain today for NJ Trick or Treaters!"
