Mango Lassi Smoothie Bowl Recipe
Vitamin C and D are some of the best supplements you can take to enhance your immunity - which we all know is crucial right now. Actually, seriously sick coronavirus patients in NYC's largest hospital were given massive doses of Vitamin C based on the promising reports from those who recovered from COVID-19 in China. The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not.
"It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it's not a new sexy drug."
-Dr. Andrew G. Weber, pulmonologist and critical-care specialist.
Vitamin C was one of the first two antioxidant compounds to be sold as dietary supplements (the other being Vitamin E). It has a history of helping reduce symptoms of the common cold, and boosting immunity. Similarly, vitamin D has been associated with immune health benefits as well as increased cognition, bone health and mood. These two vitamins are the perfect combo!
