Vitamin C is the most widely taken dietary supplement. It is available in many forms including caplets, tablets, capsules, drink mix packets, in multi-vitamin formulations, in multiple antioxidant formulations and as a chemically pure crystalline powder. It is also important to note that vitamin C is a recognized to be one of the least toxic substances known to medicine.
The health benefits of vitamin C are abundant and varied, but it’s probably best known as a cell protector, immunity booster, and powerful antioxidant. The body’s ligaments, tendons, and collagen (a protein found in connective tissues) rely on the presence of vitamin C to say strong and healthy. Like all antioxidants, vitamin C counters the effects of cell-damaging molecules called free radicals. As an added benefit, it even helps the body recycle other antioxidants.
Growth & Repair:
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to form an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, to heal wounds and form scar tissue, to repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth and to improve the way the body absorbs iron.
Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are made when your body breaks down food or when you are exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation. The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process. Free radicals may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and conditions like arthritis.
Research shows that for most people, vitamin C supplements or vitamin C-rich foods do not reduce the risk of getting the common cold. However, people who take vitamin C supplements regularly might have slightly shorter colds or somewhat milder symptoms. Taking a vitamin C supplement appears to be helpful.
