Tired of Feeling Run Down?
Vitamin C is One of the Most Popular Nutrients for Seniors and Boomers
Everyone knows that Vitamin C is a critical component to better health and feeling at your tip top. It supports our heart, brain and immune function, and right now immunity is top of the mind with winter fast approaching, as we deal with the always present flu season, common colds and residual COVID-19 infections.
It is essential we maintain our Vitamin C daily allowance of 75 milligrams for women and 90 milligrams for men for whole body health. Notwithstanding all the fruits and vegetables you can find to eat to attain your minimum goal, it is also noteworthy to know there are dietary supplements that you can take to help achieve your recommended daily allowance (“RDA”) just in case your diet falls short. And the reality is that in our fast-paced lifestyle it means that we may need to supplement our health with nutrients and minerals.
“Vitamin C is often neglected even though it’s considered one of the most important, fundamental nutrients for overall health and wellness. Vitamin C is required for:
- Collagen production, a protein that forms skin, blood vessels and tissues
- Cells to burn fat for energy
- The uptake of iron, sub-optimal iron metabolism can contribute to fatigue
- Healthy myelin, essential for function of the nervous system
- Heart and lung health
- Tendon and ligament health”
Here at BoomerGal, we try to provide you with guidance based on sound research and product efficacy, meaning we don’t promote anything that we haven’t tried ourselves and openly shared testimonials to support the claims.
I wondered if I would ever feel good again, and I was always run-down with pain from my rheumatoid arthritis, and my overall well-being just wasn’t there. I wished I could bound out of bed in the morning and feel like I once did. Well…for the rest of the story…. I was speaking with an elderly couple this past week about four nutrients I was taking and it hit me, HOW GREAT I WAS FEELING.
My daily combo is pH Salts, Camu Camu Vitamin C and turmeric. The fourth is Aloe Ferox which I take on an as needed basis for digestive health.
I mentioned pH Salts in our last blog, a proprietary blend of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium alkalizing mineral salts. The latest mentions are Camu Camu Vitamin C and turmeric.
My friends here in our development as well as across the United States who have been taking Camu Camu say “the immune system benefits from taking this Vitamin C supplement are far superior to any other supplements on the market today.” In the same breath, they caution not to be taking any synthetic Vitamin C which you may find in various health and vitamin shoppes. “It clearly helps with influenza and inflammation, and at the earliest sign of feeling ill mix ½ tsp of this fruit powder in juice, sweet tea, water or whatever preference you have, and do not hesitate to take more throughout the day.”
Am I a believer in nutrient supplements. You better believe it!!!!!!! But not just anything that rolls off the shelf. The problem with the public at large today is they purchase vitamins without doing any sort of research and due diligence as to their makeup and effectiveness. They end up obtaining vitamins that are largely comprised of excipients, unwanted additives to the vitamin complex that do little to benefit the consumer.
BoomerGal will be offering Camu Camu in the days ahead, along with our selection of Aloe Ferox and pH Salts and many other natural products.
If you recall, I mentioned turmeric as part of my daily ritual. Our next blog at the end of this week will feature more on this highly beneficial product.
Stay tuned to this important dialog on health and wellness for seniors and boomers, and for anyone that wants to feel better. Oh, and by the way, this message of inspiration is not just for BoomerGals, but BoomerGuys as well, and anyone who might be feeling run-down, including people who are much younger than us that are feeling out of sorts and run-down.
