In this video, I want to talk about an interesting reason why you might be deficient in vitamin C.

These are four main reasons why you might be deficient in vitamin C. #4 is an interesting cause that I haven’t yet talked about. Take a look.

1. Diet – Not getting enough healthy foods packed full of vitamin C.

2. Sugar – consuming too much sugar will block your ability to absorb vitamin C.

3. Insulin resistance – Many people have insulin resistance, which doesn’t allow your body to pull in vitamin C.

4. Pollution – Living in a city with a lot of pollution will decrease the amount of vitamin C in your body. This has to do with vitamin C’s antioxidant powers. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant for your lungs. A large amount of it is used when you expose your lungs to oxidants, such as pollution.

Smokers also deal with low vitamin C due to exposing their lungs to harsh smoke throughout the day. Smokers require a lot more vitamin C to stay healthy.

A vitamin C deficiency can cause decreased…
• Antibodies
• Neutrophils
• B cells
• T cells
• Interferon

Areas with high amounts of pollution also have the highest rates of deaths due to lower respiratory disease.

If you live in one of these pollution-rich areas, make sure you get plenty of vitamin C to help offset the harmful effects on your body.
