The TRUTH about vitamin C and sleep

Vitamin C is an antioxidant powerhouse. We primarily take Vitamin C for our immune health, and it's a necessary vitamin for maintaining healthy bones, skin, and teeth. But vitamin C has some incredible benefits for your sleep.

Vitamin C is also called ascorbic acid, and it helps "eat" free radicals to keep them out of your system. Research also indicates that proper levels of vitamin C can act as a hedge against memory loss associated with the lack of sleep. And it can help reduce some of the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea.

But there is a LOT to learn about vitamin C, specifically as it relates to your sleep health. So join Dr. Michael Breus as he explains the HOW vitamin C works in your body and why it's important to get more of it in your everyday diet.
