It’s perhaps one of the more common vitamins that most of us have heard of, with many of us associating Vitamin C with boosting our immune systems. But this essential vitamin does much more than simply help with keeping our immune systems in tip-top condition, so here at Natural Beauty Salon, we’ve delved into how vital this particular vitamin is and how Natural Beauty Vitamin C injections can benefit your health further.
What is Vitamin C?
This essential vitamin is necessary for the immune system’s proper functioning, which many of us understand. However, it does much more than this by being involved in absorbing iron, wound healing, formation of collagen, and maintaining bones, teeth, and cartilage. Vitamin C is also necessary to develop, grow, and repair all body tissues and is also an essential physiological antioxidant that is shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including Vitamin E. Indeed, there is ongoing research examining whether Vitamin C might help prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease and other diseases in which oxidative stress plays a causal role. Consequently, there are many good reasons why it’s vital to ensure your body receives sufficient amounts of this crucial vitamin.
Vitamin C isn’t something your body produces, so you have to obtain this nutrient from your diet or supplementation. However, it can stay in the body for weeks, where the kidneys control the levels in the blood. Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient naturally found in some foods such as citrus fruits and vegetables or can be added through supplementation, typically through capsules or chewable tablets. If you dislike vegetables and fruits, you’re more likely to be Vitamin C deficient. This is similar for people juggling stressful lives. So, if you’re missing out on essential nutrients, then Natural Beauty’s Vitamin C injection is a quick and efficient way to boost your immune system and general health, and this is especially so if you have little time to remember to take daily supplements!
Vitamin C Deficiency
Severe Vitamin C deficiency ultimately leads to scurvy, but how long symptoms appear depends on your body’s stores of the vitamin. However, signs can start in as little as one month if your intake of the vitamin is low or none at all.
Typical symptoms may start with fatigue and inflammation of the gums, but as the deficiency progresses, collagen synthesis becomes impaired, affecting connective tissues, causing skin abnormalities, joint pain, poor wound healing, and hyperkeratosis. Additional signs of scurvy include depression, swollen bleeding gums, loose teeth, chronic inflammation, and iron deficiency anaemia. You are also more likely to be low in Vitamin C if you are in the following groups:
Benefits of Injectable Vitamin C
Vitamin C injections can offer immediate health benefits and aid in supporting a range of conditions, including supporting and improving symptoms and reducing the risk of health concerns. These include neurological conditions, eye health, digestive disorders, immune conditions, cardiovascular health and respiratory conditions, in addition to treating Vitamin C deficiency.
Consequently, making sure your body maintains the right amount of Vitamin C is crucial to leading a generally healthy life. Moreover, with many of us leading hectic, stressful lives, it’s even more vital as Vitamin C is sensitive to stress. Consequently, incorporating Vitamin C shots into your wellness plan can significantly benefit your general health and wellbeing, including:
