Showing up for our cells – it’s not something that most of us are ever taught to think about and yet each day it is the most profound thing that we can do to stay energized in our thoughts, actions, health, emotions, and awareness. When we are energized we are more likely to show up as our best self for the world. Now more than ever the world needs our best cells and our best selves to show up.
// The greater our understanding is of the body and what our cells need in order to express vitality and longevity, the easier it becomes to fight for total wellness. There is a magnificent community that exists within each of us and it’s humbling and inspiring to think about what our cells achieve everyday on our behalf. Each of us represent a beautiful, collaborative, diverse, creative, loving and functioning community of the most staggering proportions!!
// As if everything in our life depends on it, we need to find the foods, the people, the work, the causes, the actions, the wellness protocol that together make us feel most alive and work every day to make our cells wildly happy and energized.
// Vitamin C simply doesn’t get enough credit; it has a hand in just about every function that the body needs to perform. We call it the happy vitamin because it merrily helps our cells gobble up harmful bacteria and viruses while energizing cellular function. What types of cellular functions? Well it works to enhance collagen formation, maintain healthy cartilage, bones, teeth, boost exercise benefits, accelerate wound healing, prevent scurvy, improve iron absorption, support optimal blood pressure, combat free-radicals, improve eye conditions and it helps our cells defend against a host of environmental toxins – just to name a few!! ✨👊🏼🍊
Now the body doesn’t make its own Vitamin C. Thankfully, some of the tastiest vegetables and fruits that exist like berries, greens, citrus, apples, brassicas and peppers satisfy our cellular need for C. But what about during times of illness, extreme stress or when we are recovering from injury or surgery, or simply not close to an adequate supply of fresh food? Does the body benefit from Vitamin C supplementation? You bet! Continued⬇
