Gabriela's Collagen & Vitamin C Shopping List

Let's talk Vitamin C! 

This skin-supporting vitamin maintains blood vessels and bones as well as supporting immunity, brain function and heart health. In the context of supporting skin health, Gabriela is really passionate about helping her clients increase their natural intake of Vitamin C through food sources, as well as supplementing through our GP Gold Multinutrient.

Vitamin C is also a Collagen hero! This nutrient has a major role in collagen synthesis. It offers antioxidant support and prevents free radical damage caused by UV exposure, while also protecting nails and hari. 

Grab a pen and note down Gabriela's key foods for increasing your natural intake of Vitamin C and Collagen to support full body health as well as supporting your hair skin and nails, which is so important during the summer months!
