Vitamin-C. Not Just For When You’re Sick.

As you may or may not already know there are a lot of benificial uses for vitamin-c. This sucker is also an anti-oxidant, which helps slow aging, it’s aids in adrenal health and one of the most important uses it has, especially post workout, is it’s ability to aid the body in lowering cortisol.

This is very benificial especially for those working out later in the day, say after a long day at work. Night time training, especially a intense workout will ramp up your body’s cortisol levels which will make it very difficult for your body to shut down come bed time. This is where vitamin-c comes into play.

  1. Take anywhere from 2-4grams post workout pending on your tolerance.
  2. Look for a vitamin-c that have bio-flavionoids and ascorbic acid.
  3. Be sure not to take the vitamin-c pre workout and on non training days you can take up to 10 grams throughout the day.

 

Lastly, no, the chewy, gummy, little bears are not the kind of vitamin-c we are talking about.
