Vitamin C protects against infection and enhances immunity. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and aids in the production of anti-stress hormones and interferon, an important immune system protein.
How it works
Immune Function: Vitamin C is an antioxidant required in at least 300 metabolic functions in the body.
It aids in the production of an important immune system protein, interferon and protects against infection and enhances immunity.
Overall, regular use of vitamin C shortens the duration of the common cold, but does not reduce the risk of becoming ill.
Metabolism: Vitamin C is needed in the metabolism of folic acid, Tyrosine, Carnitine and phenylalanine.
Vitamin C works synergistically with both Vitamin E and beta-carotene. Vitamin E scavenges for free radicals in cell membranes, and Vitamin C attacks free radicals in biologic fluids – so both vitamins extend each other’s antioxidant activity.
Collagen production: Essential in the formation of collagen – a protein found in connective tissue. In this way vitamin c prevents bruising (by strengthening the capillaries) and keeps ligaments and tendons strong and healthy.
Gums: a common sign of lesser degrees of deficiency include gums that bleed when brushed.
High doses of Vitamin C have been associated with multiple adverse effects. These include: kidney stones, severe diarrhea, nausea and gastritis. High doses of vitamin C should be avoided in people with conditions aggravated by acid loading, such as cirrhosis and gout.
When taken together, vitamin C may increase the absorption of iron in the gastrointestinal tract.
Large doses of Vitamin C may interfere with the absorption and metabolism of Vitamin B12.
