Vitamin C is available in different forms: Ascorbic acid is pure Vitamin C on its own. However, because it’s acidic, people with sensitive stomachs may react to it. Sodium ascorbate is a buffered form of Vitamin C that binds ascorbic acid to sodium molecules. This makes it more suitable for people with sensitive stomachs. Vitamin C is “the immunity vitamin”. It helps your body to build up resistance to all kinds of common infections; and can help to reduce your recovery time. Your white blood cells (part of your immune system) need Vitamin C to function normally and help you fight off bacterial / viral infections. Your adrenal glands use up Vitamin C when they respond to stressful situations (e.g. sudden temperature changes, change of seasons, life stresses, etc). Your body uses Vitamin C to make collagen – a protein that helps to form healthy skin, ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth. That’s why your body needs more Vitamin C when you’re healing from surgery and injury. Vitamin C helps your body to absorb Iron – a mineral you need for healthy red blood cells, which help to reduce fatigue and support immunity. Finally, Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your cells against free radical damage.
Native American herbalists traditionally used Echinacea (also called Purple Cone Flower) to help fight infections. Today, we know Echinacea has powerful immunity-boosting properties that can help keep you healthy during cold season, and help you fight off other bacterial and viral infections. Echinacea can also help your body to heal and clear skin conditions like acne, boils or cold sores.
