No vitamin routine should be without the antioxidant protection offered by vitamin C. Because our bodies cannot produce vitamin C, it needs to be replenished on a daily basis. Vitamin C is crucial in the production of collagen, which helps build blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bones. It helps create neurotransmitters that control mood, and carnitine which helps shuttle fat to the mitochondria for energy production. It has been suggested that vitamin C may help with lead detoxification. As an antioxidant, it prevents free radicals from damaging cells and DNA. What's more, it may be able to regenerate the antioxidant vitamin E.
Vitamin C has many important functions in
the body. It is a crucial player in the production of collagen, which
helps build blood vessels, tendons, and bone. It helps synthesize
neurotransmitters that control mood, and carnitine which helps shuttle
fat to the mitochondria inside cells to produce energy. As an
antioxidant, it helps prevent the oxidation of key proteins, fats, and
DNA inside the body. Vitamin C may also regenerate vitamin E inside the
body. Studies have shown that vitamin C can block the damaging effects
of nitrates found in cured or packaged meats. It has been postulated
that vitamin C may prevent intestinal absorption or increase urinary
excretion of lead. While it is commonly believed that vitamin C can
reduce the risk of the common cold, research of late has found this to
be true only for endurance athletes. Since vitamin C is a water soluble
vitamin and not produced by the body, it is imperative that enough is
consumed on a daily basis to support proper health. The current RDA for
vitamin C is 90 mg per day for male adults and 75 mg for female adults.
The Linus Pauling Institute recommends consuming at least 400 mg
daily—the amount found to fully saturate plasma and circulating cells
with vitamin C in young, healthy nonsmokers.
