Vitamin C

Why do I need Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that has a number of important biological functions. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for humans, but unlike most other mammals, humans are unable to make their own Vitamin C internally. Vitamin C also offers antioxidant benefits.

Vitamin C is known to perform many critical functions within the body involving detoxification, tissue building, immune enhancement, pain control, and controlling or killing pathogenic organisms. It is known to be helpful for wound and bone healing, healthy skin and eyes, fighting infections, stress control, toxic exposure, and repairing damaged tissues. Taking adequate amounts of Vitamin C may help prevent a wide range of disease states.

Collagen
The most important function of Vitamin C is in the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common substance in the body. It is the main component of the connective tissue of our bodies. Connective tissue gives form to our bodies and supports our organs. Scurvy, the disease caused by a chronic deficiency of Vitamin C, is actually the inability of the body to produce collagen.

Metabolism
Vitamin C is necessary for metabolism. Vitamin C is needed for the production of the neurotransmitter substances dopamine and epinephrine; the stress hormones. Vitamin C helps thyroid hormone production. This hormone-supplementing role of Vitamin C makes it important to the nervous system to help it manage stress, reduce fatigue and slow metabolism. This attribute makes Vitamin C important for anti-aging and life extension treatments.

Cholesterol and Metabolism
Vitamin C also helps in cholesterol metabolism. Vitamin C is important for the function of the immune system. It has been shown to activate neutrophils, the predominant white blood cells that work against invading pathogens. Vitamin C stimulates the production of lymphocytes, the white blood cells that are of primary importance to the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates interferon production, which causes the immune system to respond to viral invaders.
