Vitamin C. Fat Buster! YES!
When you’re under stress, you secret more cortisol hormone. Vitamin C helps balance the cortisol spikes that happen to you under stress. Besides being a good way to counteract a cold, Vitamin C is also essential for making carnitine, a compound used by the body to turn fat into fuel, making this vitamin your fat burning friend.
If you’re going through an emotional crisis, increase your vitamin C – it’ll help counteract the negative side effects. Use Ascorbyl Palmitate (vitamin C with no sugar) if you are on Ideal Protein Phase 1 or 2.
