Vitamin C 1000

Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid has multiple functions in the body, either as a potent scavenger antioxidant, coenzyme or cofactor. It is present and essential to the normal functioning of all cellular units including subcellular structures such as ribosomes and mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell). The ability of ascorbic acid to lose and take on hydrogen gives it an essential role in metabolism.

Benefits of Vitamin C:

  • Major antioxidant
  • Acts synergistically with vitamin E to reduce the peroxyl radical
    stabilizes vitamin E
  • Required for the production and maintenance of collagen, a
    protein substance bound in all fibrous tissue (connective tissue,
    artilage, bone matrix, tooth dentin, skin and tendon)
  • Increases the bioavailability of selenium and other trace minerals
    Stimulates the body's natural defense system and maintains
    resistance to infection
  • Prevent and cure the common cold
  • Protective to the cardiovascular system - A study reported
    vitamin C slowing the progression of artheriosclerosis
  • Increases glutathione levels in the red blood cell

Note: Under stress, when adrenal cortical hormone activity is high, ascorbic acid concentrate in the tissue is decreased. During periods of emotional, psychological or physiological stress, the urinary excretion of ascorbic acid is increased.
