Stay Healthy During Your Vacation 

Dec 09, 2022

Introduction

Searching for the best deal and package from a travel agency? Checking the cheapest flight tickets for your vacation? Planning to clear your annual leave and spend it with your family or beloved one? 

Travel season has come back after the pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO). As a result, more and more countries are lifting their restrictions and travel requirements, opening borders, and welcoming tourists to come1. During vacation, you might be exposed to pollution or infection. Therefore, taking vitamin C can help to boost your immune system and aid in illness prevention2. Functions of vitamin C include: – 

  • Act as antioxidant 
  • Boost immune system 
  • Promote collagen formation in our body 

Vitamin C not only supports the immune system by promoting cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune systems. It also provides epithelial barrier function against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby potentially protecting against environmental oxidative stress3. Don’t let illnesses spoil your trip! Here are BiO-LiFE Vitamin C products that you can bring along as your companion to strengthen your immune system while having fun:
