Vitamin C (137 products)

 

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that has antioxidant, immune boosting, wound healing and disease preventative actions within the body.

 

Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize Vitamin C in the body, so it is an essential that we get enough Vitamin C daily from the foods we eat or from taking a dietary Vitamin C supplement.

 

Vitamin C helps to repair and regenerate tissues, protect against heart disease, aid in the absorption of iron, prevent scurvy, and decrease total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglycerides. Research indicates that Vitamin C may help protect against a variety of cancers by combating free radicals. Supplemental Vitamin C may also shorten the duration and symptoms of a common cold, help delay or prevent cataracts, and support healthy immune function. Taking Vitamin C for skin health is vital if you want to maintain a youthful and radiant complexion.

 

While often taken for granted, Vitamin C is a critical supplement in your program to improve cardiac health and avoid degenerative diseases.

 

What are the signs of a Vitamin C deficiency?

 

Deficiency symptoms include fatigue, muscle weakness, joint and muscle aches, bleeding gums, and leg rashes. Prolonged deficiency can cause scurvy, a rare but potentially severe illness.

 

When obtained from food sources and supplements in the recommended dosages, Vitamin C is generally regarded as safe and side effects are rarely reported. However, taking high dose Vitamin C in excess of 2,000mg per day can sometimes cause diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps, and other gastrointestinal symptoms in sensitive people.

 

At times of illness, during recovery from injury, or under conditions of increased oxidative stress (including smoking), the body’s need for Vitamin C is greater and taking a Vitamin C tablet or Vitamin C powder can be of benefit.

 

The best Vitamin C supplement is one that can be easily absorbed and is long lasting within the body.

 

Types of Vitamin C to look out for include calcium ascorbate dihydrate, ascorbic acid powder, buffered C, sustained release C, natural Vitamin C from acerola berries, camu camu and rosehips.
