Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant vitamin that the body cannot produce. Its main function in the body is its role in producing collagen, the substance that makes up ligaments, tendons and connective tissue vital to the body structure. Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to enhance the immune system promote wound healing support neurotransmitter and hormone production and promote the health of all cells in the body. Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants. It works in an aqueous environment in the body both intra and extracellularly. It is considered as the first line of antioxidant protection in the body and therefore much research has been undertaken into its potential role in preventing chronic diseases resulting from free radical and oxidative damage.
Vitamin C deficiency may occur as a result of poor dietary intake or the using of conventional medications that are known to be associated with depletion. Vitamin C deficiency can result in a diminished immune response, susceptibility to infection and slow wound healing. Vitamin C supplementation corrects a condition called scurvy, one of the oldest known nutritional deficiencies. When Vitamin C stores are low, the action of other antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin E and Selenium also drop. It is thus essential to maintain healthy stores of this vitamin.
Vitamin C is vital for: First line defence against oxidation and free radical damage, both of which are known to initiate many of the most common diseases - cancer, heart disease, age-related eye diseases and other chronic conditions. Maintenance of healthy connective tissue and bones (a deficiency often leads to bleeding and poor wound healing) Normal metabolism of cholesterol and the production of cortisol by the adrenal gland. The production of collagen (found in both skin and bones) in the metabolism or various brain chemicals. The synthesis of the hormone noradrenalin, which has powerful effects upon pulse rate and blood pressure. Supports the body's natural mechanism of preventing or reducing inflammation with a vigorous immune response, reducing the discomfort normally associated with colds and infections.
