More Vitamin C to Combat Stress

719In addition to helping you prevent heart and eye disease and skin wrinkling, Vitamin C is a great supporter of your immune system. When you are stressed, your body uses up more Vitamin C than usual. That is why experts recommend that when stressed, you increase you intake of Vitamin C. Daily doses for men and women are 90 and 75 milligrams respectively, when increasing your intake be sure to spread your dosage throughout the day.*

For a natural dose of Vitamin C, pick up the following fruits from your local grocery store: watermelon, kiwis, grapefruit, strawberries, apricots, tangerines, mango, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, oranges, pineapple, and plums.
