Why do I feel so good after taking Vitamin C?
A known for me is that Vitamin C is a major mood booster.
Many people have heard about how Vitamin C can help support us during cold and flu season but Vitamin C can also support against poor mental...
Vitamin C is a mood booster and it's essential for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Neurotransmitter Dopamine is a "happy" brain chemical linked to making us feel energised and plays a vital role in the brain's pleasure and reward systems, so if you are not getting enough Vitamin C this can cause your dopamine levels to drop. Studies do show that Vitamin C helps convert dopamine into norepinephrine as when these levels are low it can lead to feeling depressed or anxious.
Again, Vitamin C isn't the only factor that affects mood. Heck, it isn't even the only nutrient that affects mood. But if you're not getting enough Vitamin C, it certainly can lead to a dip in both mood and energy. That means you need to make sure you're getting enough on a daily basis, not just when you're sick.
Supplements can support you but it’s also about making sure that you eat foods that are high in Vitamin C.
When you do that your whole body will benefit and thank you for it.
From a personal view when I was first diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer and starting the journey, it was, Oh Shit What the hell is happening?
So many things were going through my head like, is this a bad dream.
- The mind came up with all sorts of things.
- How long have I got.
- Treatments, Chemo, Oh my G…
- I don’t really understand what they are going to do.
- Heck what’s with all these pills.
- Couldn’t find a book either on how to fix it.
It was hard at times, tough moments of feeling down and it went on where I kept going down until I reached a point where I found myself in a dark space.
From that space, it was a journey a process back…
After all the treatments, all the feelings, emotions, moods, after being given so many weeks to live, something shifted, it was the beginning of a comeback, doors opened, I got juiced up, juiced into life. I felt supported, inspired through my experiences, friends, family as I played, created and developed what is C-pure today.
Just me being me, no one has to tell me how amazing my high dose Vitamin C is, I’ve experienced it first hand. C-pure has been a game changer, a mood buster for me. These days I stay pretty much in the zone of positive which is fantastic for my mental wellbeing. I believe C-pure supported me through those down days, supported me to come out of that dark space.
No one prepares you for life experiences like this, no schooling, no university, nothing prepares you. You’re left to face and deal with all the challenges that come up the best way you can.
Since developing, creating and putting C-pure out there, I’ve met some incredible people from all walks of life as people open up and share, we connect, we feel for each other, support each other, even become friends.
I know I’m not alone when it comes to facing life threatening challenges, so many are affected. Hope this little bit of a blog maybe inspires, helps someone, maybe encourages you to reach out.
I find it’s best to go with one day at a time. I’m also finding that each day is pretty bloody special!
From all of us at the C-pure team we hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoy sharing, writing, discovering the amazing benefits of Liposomal Vitamin C.
