7 Health Benefits of Vitamin C


Vitamin C is one of the most beneficial nutrients that can be found or easily added into your regular diet, as food s like cantaloupe, broccoli, red peppers and oranges are all extremely rich in vitamin C. The average person should consume 70 milligrams of vitamin C per day, which can easily be provided through foods rich in vitamin C, as well as vitamin C supplements.

How Vitamin C Can Help You:

1. Vitamin C is an effective natural treatment to the common cold. Cold symptoms may be lessened due to its effects as an antihistamine.

2. Vitamin C keeps gums healthy. It’s possible that vitamin C is most famous for its prevention of scurvy (blackened and swollen gums), which the European immigrants learned not long after reaching America.

3. Vitamin C helps wounds to heal. Because vitamin C is contributes to collagen production, it is directly linked to the healing process of all scratches, bumps and bruises.

4. Vitamin C has positive effects on allergy and asthma patients. As a natural antihistamine, vitamin C has been observed to combat allergy and asthma symptoms.

5. Vitamin C prevents cataracts. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which will counteract the harmful radicals resulting from sunlight, when in the lens of the eye, preventing cataracts and blindness in old age.

6. Vitamin C prevents skin aging. By increasing vitamin C intake, skin is less likely to become dry and wrinkled, and often has better skin aging appearances.

7. Vitamin C may be a cure to premature aging. A recent study in Canada showed that mice with accelerated aging disease reversed and stopped symptoms once their vitamin C intake was increased. Though no study has been conducted in people with any age disorders, these findings demonstrate that vitamin C is an essential nutrient for people to include in their diet, especially because humans do not produce their own vitamin C, as mice do.

Vitamin C is an extremely beneficial nutrient, and if you experience weakness, lassitude, swollen gums or nosebleeds, it is possible that you have a vitamin C deficiency. That being said, too much vitamin C can be harmful to your body and may cause kidney stones or diarrhea. So eat your oranges, but keep them in moderation.

Sleep: The Big Factor


Most students when they move to go live in dorms at University start getting less and less sleep. Obviously this is a very large problem for many students, not just for grades, but for their health too.

Student life on campus can be very hectic, very busy, and very fun. All of this is true, but you have to learn how to balance. Sleep deprivation is a very troubling problem almost all students living on campus face. Sleep deprivation can make students more likely to develop depression, become very irritable, and worsen existing conditions such as diabetes, chronic fatigue and even asthma.

Many of the students start to see a drop in marks. This can be attributed partially due to the higher expectations, but zoning out during class, and being too worn out to study can play a big part. Students should try to go to sleep before midnight whenever they have class the next morning. If they want to stay up and party, they should try and plan it when they have a day off after a night of partying.

Some of the kids, well maybe not kids anymore, but adults now, actually start skipping class because of their need for sleep. This will show a significant drop in grades at the least. Most that continue to skip class will see themselves getting set up for a failing grade in their course.
University students need to remember there really isn’t an alternative to sleep, and adequate sleep is one of the most important things. Bring ear plugs if you must, but go to bed early, or at least earlier.
