ENERGY and STAMINA are enhanced by Vitamin C!
A study reports on 100 healthy athletes. Those with the highest levels of vitamin C in their blood had significantly higher oxygenation and tired significantly later than those with the lowest levels of vitamin C.
The study showed that the average athlete was consuming only 33 mg of vitamin C from the diet- much less than the RDA of 90 mg per day! Less vitamin C = less antioxidant protection from the chemicals of our environment and foods = more likely to age young and cause disease. Low vitamin C is a sign of LACK OF RAW VEGGIE and FRUITS> therefore-- the AMERICAN DIET is inherently LOW IN VITAMIN C and antioxidants= hence we are aging too rapidly!
In our clinic we can measure vitamin C saturation and antioxidant function with our urine and saliva tests. We can also test which antioxidants are most compatible with your body! call today! 253-752-7377
