A healthy immune system is always a boon to humans as it fights against the myriad of infections that surround the world. Bacteria, virus, and other microorganisms are so tiny that they can only be seen under a microscope. Some microorganisms are beneficial for humans while others are not. So how does one fight the harmful effects of these microorganisms? The answer is simple. By building immunity with OrganicGreek Vitamin C.
Healthy food, rest, cleanliness, and hygiene are the ways by which you can build natural immunity. Vitamins, minerals, and proteins present in food help to make the body stronger. Unfortunately, most of us eat good food but not healthy food. Eating several servings of fruits and vegetables per day does not practically happen. So, supplementation with vitamins is a good way to build immunity.
A lack of vitamin C leads to a disease called scurvy. It was first seen in sailors who used to stay aboard on ships for weeks together without fresh fruits or vegetables. It was found that treating them with lemon juice reversed the condition. Currently, it is not seen in developed countries but is still somewhat prevalent in refugee camps.
Taking a single pill of OrganicGreek Vitamin C 1000 mg will boost your immunity and give your cells additional capacity to repair your tissues. Some of the major functions of Vitamin C in the body are as follows:
- It is used to synthesize collagen
- It is required for iron absorption
- It helps in the general protection and health of cells
- It helps to maintain healthy skin
- It helps to maintain blood vessels
- It helps to maintain cartilage

Ascorbic acid, another name for Vitamin C. is a water-soluble vitamin.

However, if your diet is insufficient in Vitamin C, our OrganicGreek Vitamin C supplement will give an additional boost to your body.
