Vitamin C And Mental Health The Link You Shouldn't Ignore

Vitamin C And Mental Health The Link You Shouldn't Ignore

Vitamin C Deficiency 

Vitamin C deficiency could be more common than you think. For centuries it has been known that deficiency of Vitamin C can be associated with many things including mental health.

Mental Health From A Holistic View 

Mental health is not something you have, it’s more to do with what you think. It is said that what you think you create and what you create you become.  

Mental health is generally the overall wellness of how you think, how you feel and what you follow through with which then becomes how you behave. It’s a complex and multi layered concept that includes many emotional, social and psychological factors. But mostly it is broken into three major components: cognitive health, emotional health, and behavioural health. This too can be in varying degrees. People can experience significant disturbances in the mental thinking functioning, from mild to severe. if you have any concerns around, mental thinking, chattering of the mind, be in touch with your doctor or holistic health practitioner for guidance support. 

Breathe awareness plus other forms of breathe work can be a support tool to slow down the mind. Many today are turning to different types of meditation to slow down, destress. 

Balance in life can support us, too much of anything can throw us into all kinds of mind games, suffering. 

C-pure Vitamin C 

Vitamin C is one essential support Vitamin. Every day we need to eat food that contains Vitamin C as part of a healthy diet. When we don’t follow through on this we can become deficient in essential Vitamins.

If you are concerned about Vitamin C deficiency, add more fruit and vegetables that are high in Vitamin C  to your meals. 

Keep in mind when cooking that Vitamin C dissolves in water, boiling or steaming vegetables can reduce the Vitamins available for your body to absorb from the foods you eat. Consider lightly steaming your vegetables to improve their nutritional value.

If you are concerned that you may not be eating or absorbing enough Vitamin C rich foods, supplements  as a boost may be useful.

Symptoms of Vitamin C Deficiency 

If you have low Vitamin C, you may notice that you feel just generally unwell, nausea even poor appetite. Some people with Vitamin C deficiency report flu-like symptoms. This may be partly due to low iron levels since the absorption of iron is dependent on Vitamin C plus your body uses Vitamin C to also build collagen which is a key component for healthy skin. Lack of Vitamin C can also mean unhealthy skin, you may experience bleeding gums. other signs of severe Vitamin C deficiency is slow healing wounds. then there’s depression, dry hair, dry skin, a tendency to bruise or bleed easily, lack of energy. 

Who can Be At Risk Of Vitamin C Deficiency?

  • Fussy eaters
  • Elderly people
  • People with disabilities
  • People with alcohol and drug dependence or addiction
  • People who can't afford enough nutritional food
  • People with conditions that affect their diet such as eating disorders.
  • Chemotherapy 
  • People with health conditions that affect their ability to digest and absorb food, including chronic diarrhoea 
  • People recovering from any surgery.

To be honest I don’t think any of us consciously want symptoms, illness, poor health or be deficient in anything, however lets also acknowledge that no one can do it for us, it’s up to us to make smart choices, wellness choices.

Lifestyle, taking care of ourself, whatever we do is  important, don’t underestimated the need to eat fresh, eat green, eat raw, don’t forget water, hydrate yourself, watch what you ingest. 

Watch your sugar intake, try to avoid on the run fast foods, processed food. Be mindful, do what you can to avoid anything toxic, anything that hurts, harms. We are not designed to be a garbage disposal. Our body is our doorway to experiencing life.  

Keep your thinking Positive, High Vibe. Stay well from the C-pure Team
