Since our bodies cannot produce this important nutrient, Vitamin C needs to be replenished daily especially in times of stress or illness. Vitamin C is an important factor in the production of collagen, thereby helping maintain healthy blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bones. Vitamin C also helps create neurotransmitters involved in mood as well as carnitine, an amino acid that transports fat into the mitochondria for energy production.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that prevents free radicals from damaging cells and DNA. It enhances and protects other compounds from oxidative stress as well. Two other antioxidant nutrients, Vitamins A and E, are recycled by Vitamin C thereby extending their value. Vitamin E and Vitamin C work synergistically with a one-two punch to take out free radicals. The former scavenges free radicals within the cell membranes then the latter attacks them in the biological fluids.
The antioxidant activity of Vitamin C helps protect us from toxins, including lead poisoning. Vitamin C, which has no known toxicity of its own, is used by the liver to detoxify drugs and other chemicals and to promote the elimination of toxins from the body. In addition, it blocks the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines made from nitrites and nitrates found in processed foods.
Vitamin C also plays a role in cardiovascular health, immune health and healing of wounds, burns and fractures.
