Vitamin C Info
Vitamin C is probably best known for its role in preventing scurvy, the severe deficiency disease common on long distance sea voyages and among soldiers on war rations right through to the early 20th century.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for maintaining healthy body function. Our bodies need a regular renewable source of vitamin C because, unlike most animals, we humans can’t make it ourselves. It is a water soluble nutrient so not able to be absorbed into our fatty tissues. Therefore on a daily basis we need to obtain adequate amounts through our food intake, and when necessary from dietary supplements.
Vitamin C Benefits
Vitamin C has many important functions in key areas of the body:
- it is an antioxidant, controlling free radical damage to cells
- it supports the immune system and maintains integrity of blood vessels and connective tissue
- it is an essential nutrient for healthy adrenal gland function
- it has anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory actions
Vitamin C performs so many direct and indirect actions in humans that a deficiency has extremely wide ranging implications.
Vitamin C Side Effects
Vitamin C is extremely safe. Your body adjusts its vitamin C absorption according to need. Any dietary excess is excreted via the kidneys and in large supplementary doses the unabsorbed excess is flushed out via the lower bowel in a moderate form of diarrhoea – a short term balancing mechanism.
The ascorbic acid form of vitamin C may cause gastrointestinal discomfort, whereas an ascorbate form is generally well tolerated.
In cases of pre-existing kidney disease or renal failure vitamin C intake needs to be managed carefully.
Caution is advised in cases of hemochromatosis because vitamin C enhances iron absorption.
Most effective vitamin C
Have been using this product for 4 years now, I find it to be the most effective form of vitamin C on the market. It has made a huge improvement to my health in general and I notice the difference when I go without for a time, highly recommend it.
I brought these as it is getting to winter and I try everything to avoid any cold I catch from turning into a sinus infection as that seems to be what happens to me when I catch one, so I'd been having a sore throat and cough for about 4 days and getting worried a cold was on its way as my children all had one, about 24hours after taking 2 vitamin C tablets my sore throat and cough were gone, now that could have been a coincidence but I truely think they worked on me and I'll be buying them all through winter to fight off any cold coming my way, also I love buying from Healthpost it has the fastest delivery EVER sometimes under 24 hours and the prices you cannot best. Thanks Healthpost.
