Immunity Boosters: Vitamin C

The next nutrient we want to highlight is a go-to this time of year: vitamin C. This nutrient is an antioxidant in addition to its role in immune function. In addition, it plays a role in protein metabolism and in the absorption of nonheme (plant-based) iron.

Here are some foods that contain this superstar vitamin:

  • Peppers
  • Oranges
  • Strawberries
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cantaloupe

The Daily Value for vitamin C is 90mg for adults, and if you struggle to get an adequate amount through diet alone inquire with your doctor about supplementation. PRO Medical offers a high-quality, professional grade vitamin C. To learn more, call our Medical Center for details.

Another great way to add vitamin c into your routine is through our IV Therapy and Injection Clinic. Our signature IV Therapy PRO Meyers vitamin and nutrient infusion is perfect for optimal health and wellness. The IV will strengthen and boost your immune system, detoxify your body and increase energy. It includes Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, B Complex, and zinc.
