We all know how vitamin C is essential for immune boost and blood circulation health. It is also important for collagen production to repair connective tissues. And in one article in Choy's Cut I discussed how Vitamin C strengthens the bones. Plus, we all know it's vital role against stress. But wait, there's more!

Lowers Bad Cholesterol: Vitamin C helps the conversion of your cholesterol into bile salts. This makes cholesterol easier to eliminate from the body and normalize your cholesterol count.

Prevents Heart Attack: Blood vessels that don't dilate may lead to a heart attack. The failed dilation can cause obstructions in the blood vessels and especially in coronary arteries that bring blood to your heart. But studies found that even minimal takes of Vitamin C can help improve blood vessel dilation.

Controls Sugar Levels in Diabetics: Vitamin C helps regulate the sugar levels of diabetics and prevent complications. Need I say more?

Helps Treat Cancer: Though this is something popular, many people still don't believe that Vitamin C can help treat cancer and sometimes even become wholly responsible for its cure. Cancer cells survive in acidic environment but natural Vitamin C, especially non-acidic sodium ascorbate, can keep your body alkaline. Cancer cells and infections die in alkaline environment. The notion is still that Vitamin C is acidic and may worsen cancer. They should search more on natural and non-acidic sodium ascorbate Vitamin C.

Helps Treat Neurological Problems: A German study found that people with mild dementia had very low levels of Vitamin C in their blood, along with low levels of beta-carotene and lycopene. The suggestion is to increase takes of Vitamin C.

Relieves Breathlessness: Broncho-constriction, or the narrowing of airways after physical exertion, can be lessened with regular intake of Vitamin C. This was discovered by a study done at the University of Helsinki in Finland. You can reduce shortness of breath after rigorous physical activities with Vitamin C.

Relieves Asthma Symptoms: Did you know that Vitamin C has antihistamine and antioxidant properties? This is good news to asthmatic people who suffer inflammation of airways and problems with the lungs. Antioxidants are excellently anti-inflammatory.

And the number of benefits go on. They always find new discoveries on the wonderful effects of this super, all-around vitamin. There's no reason why you should skip your daily Vitamin C supplementation aside from eating fruits high in it. Funny how a lot of people won't take health supplements but invest on cigarettes and liquor! They take them daily, spending huge amount of money annually on them.

Don't forfeit yourself even of this nutrient's anti-arthritis, anti-eye cataract, and anti-tuberculosis effects. And to be safe, take only non-acidic, sodium ascorbate Vitamin C in vegetable caps. Thus, I always take VITAL-C sodium ascorbate. It's been doing me great health improvements (from being easily susceptible to cold, cough, and flu)--all by God's grace and power.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
