Why is vitamin C necessary for our health? Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that our bodies need for the growth and repair of body tissue, along with strengthening blood vessel walls, collagen production and a strong immune system. We can’t produce it in our bodies, so we need to get it from outside sources like food (citrus fruits, berries, peppers, broccoli, spinach) or supplements. Taking a supplement is especially beneficial during cold and flu season–that way you can be sure you’re getting your daily vitamin C dose.
What are the advantages of elderberry? Elderberries have been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. They support the immune system and can help fight colds and flu by acting as a diaphoretic (a substance that promotes sweating). That’s one fruitful berry!
