Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that is stored in many tissues throughout the body, but the adrenal glands contain the highest concentration.
Water-soluble vitamins are used by the body in 2-4 days or excreted and need to be replenished daily with food sources or supplements.
Stresses such as infection & fever, burns, exposure to cold, physical trauma, fractures, high altitude and radiation, all require larger doses of vitamin C.
Vitamin C functions as a potent antioxidant, thus helping to limit damage to the body from free radicals. It also enhances the antioxidant activity of vitamin E.
Vitamin C & Digestive health/Detox: Vitamin C can help the body rid itself of heavy metal toxins like mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel.
Vitamin C is a natural laxative and may help with constipation problems.
Vitamin C & Infection/Immunity: Vitamin C increases white blood cell production, levels of antibodies and production of interferon
to produce a positive immunological response to a wide range of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Vitamin C is commonly used for the prevention and treatment of
the common cold and flu syndrome. Health studies show that Vit C supplementation results in fewer colds, fewer days of infection, and a significantly shorter duration of severe symptoms.
Vitamin C & Respiratory health: Vitamin C is depleted in people who smoke and is highly recommended for nicotine withdrawal. Two recent studies suggest that Vitamin C may help to reduce the risk of lung cancer in smokers as well as damage from exposure to second-hand smoke in non-smokers.
Vitamin C may also be helpful for hayfever and allergic rhinitis because of its anti-histamine activity.
Vitamin C & Skin Health: Vitamin C is one of the best free radical quenchers for healthy skin. Vitamin C helps produce and maintain healthy collagen and elsatin for
a healthy skin tone. Vitamin C also activates rapid healing to injured or ageing tissues and speeds wound
healing after injury or surgery. Also essential for bleeding gums.
Caution: In higher doses vitamin C may cause diarrhoea
