Those achy swollen glands are also known as lymph nodes.They play a vital role in the body's ability to fight off infections. They function as filters, trapping viruses, bacteria and other causes of illnesses before they can infect other parts of your body. Common areas where you might notice swollen lymph nodes include your neck, under your chin, in your armpits and in your groin.
Good news is that these painful glands alert us that our immune system is working hard trying to fight off an underlying viral and/or bacterial infection. Taking high doses of vitamin C to bowel tolerance ( the point of watery stools ) can be an extremely helpful natural treatment. In fact vitamin C is one of nature's best immune supportive gifts.
Vitamin C strengthens your immune cells and is able to support a stressed immune system quite effectively. In fact studies have shown that people with low levels of vitamin C are much more prone to swollen glands and the infections that these glands are trying to fight off. While the amount of vitamin C needed to therapeutically treat an infection is considerable, the healing benefits are well worth the extra consumption, especially with the uniquely refreshing support Sufficient-C® High Dose Vitamin C Lemon Peach Immune-Ade drink mix offers.
