By now you must be aware about the benefit of
vitamin C for your Immunity in current covid-19 pandemic.
Vitamin C act as an antioxidant. It helps you to
wash out free radicals (responsible for various
diseases) from your body. Thus, making your body
strong by increasing your immunity.
As a result, you must have started taking
lemon juice regularly. However,
both vitamin-C & sugar can enter your cells using
the same critical protein known as
glut-1 receptor. This glut-1 receptor has a preference for
glucose. This mean, that it will choose sugar over vitamin-C. This
poses a particular challenge for your white blood cells (WBC) which
are your defense cells. Your WBC need up to
50 times more vitamin-C within their cell walls than
in surrounding blood plasma to effectively handle
the effects of your oxidative stress.
What does this mean for you?
If you are taking your lemon juice with sugar in it, it
won’t be beneficial as it should. Instead,
just take pure & fresh lemon water without
sugar in it. Why Take naked calorie?
You can also grow your lemon plant in your kitchen garden.
While we are waiting for the vaccine for covid-19, the best
strategy is to boost your immune system.
That’s all for today
