Consider adding and/or increasing your Vitamin C intake.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant with many benefits.
In addition to improving the immune system, helping to lower cholesterol , improving symptoms of asthma, and a way to prevent various diseases, vitamin C can help relieve back pain. Among it’s potent benefits, vitamin C aids in the repair of muscle tissues.
I prefer to get vitamin C from food in the most natural way possible.
Natural sources of Vitamin C include: Oranges, Papaya, Cherries, Strawberries and pineapple and broccoli.
Life is busy! For many of us, it’s not always possible to increase vitamin levels with nutrition. Adding a supplement can be helpful.
May Health practitioners recommend supplementing with a 1000mg of Vitamin C a day. Some practitioners recommend up to 3000-6000 mg. a day. *
Improving your nutrition, and boosting your immune system can help manage back pain and often times decrease pain significantly.
* As always, please speak with your Medical doctor before adding or increasing any supplements.
