VITAMINS C IN-DEPTH

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is required for the biosynthesis of collagen, a structural component of tendons, ligaments, bone, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is also required for the synthesis of neurotransmitter, norepinephrine, and carnitine, that is essential for the transport of fatty acids into mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also involved in metabolism metabolism of protein and cholesterol. It acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Vitamin C plays an important role in immune function and improves the absorption of nonheme iron, the form of iron present in plant-based foods. Acute vitamin C deficiency leads to scurvy which is characterized by fatigue or lassitude, inflammation of the gums, small red or purple spots on the skin, widespread connective tissue weakness, and capillary fragility. Additional signs of scurvy include anemia, depression as well as swollen, bleeding gums and loosening or loss of teeth. Scurvy is fatal if it is not treated.

 

VITAMIN C BOOSTS THE FUNCTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Vitamin C boosts the function of the immune system, and may protect against viral infections and other diseases. Vitamin C stimulates the production and function of immune cells, leukocytes (white blood cells), especially neutrophils, lymphocytes, and phagocytes, which attack foreign bacteria and viruses. Studies found that taking high doses of vitamin C might shorten the course of the cold by 1 to 1.5 days and improve its symptoms. In a subgroup of marathon runners, skiers, and soldiers training in the Arctic, doses ranging from 250 mg/day to 1 gram/day decreased the incidence of colds by 50%.

 

IMPROVES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Vitamin C supplementation along with conventional high blood pressure medications appears to decrease systolic blood pressure. A recent study in individuals with hypertension found that vitamin C supplementation with 500 mg/day resulted in an average drop in systolic blood pressure of 9% after four weeks.

 

DECREASES THE RISK OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE

Prospective studies indicated that dietary vitamin C intake was inversely related to coronary heart disease (CHD) risk. In a recent study, vitamin C intake of more than 359 mg/day was associated with a 28% reduction in CHD risk.

 

IMPROVES FAT-LOSS

Low intake of Vitamin C causes less fat to be burned during exercise. An Arizona State University study found that people who supplemented their diet with extra vitamin C (500 mg/day) could boost their fat-burning potential during exercise by 39%.

 

MAY DECREASE THE RISK OF MOST TYPES OF CANCER

A large number of prospective studies have found that increased consumption of vitamin C is associated with a reduced risk for most types of cancer. Higher intakes of vitamin C are associated with decreased incidence of cancers of the mouth, throat and vocal chords, esophagus, stomach, colon-rectum, and lung.

 

MAY DECREASE THE RISK OF ULCER

Vitamin C supplementation may be beneficial in the treatment of ulcers in the stomach caused by bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, and decrease some of the side effects caused by treatment.

 

MAY BE HELPFUL IN THE PREVENTION OF GOUT

A placebo-controlled trial reported that vitamin C supplementation (500 mg/day) lowered serum concentrations of uric acid significantly compared to placebo.

 

HELPS PREVENT AGE-RELEATED VISION LOSS

Taking vitamin C in combination with zinc, vitamin E, and beta-carotene daily seems to help prevent vision loss or slow worsening of AMD (age-related macular degeneration).

 

PROTECTS SKIN AGAINST UV RADIATION

Studies found that Vitamin C and Vitamin E co-supplementation seems to prevent sunburn.
