Vitamin C, which is also known as Ascorbic acid, is a powerful and water soluble antioxidant to help strengthen blood vessels and body muscles. Since the human body doesnt generate this vitamin, it must be received through food and supplements. It is also one of the safest nutrients to take. The recommended daily amount by some accounts for vitamin C is 500 milligrams a day.
Since Vitamin C is not stored in the body, overdose is of little concern. Vitamin C is found naturally in such foods as cantaloupe, orange juice, broccoli, red cabbage, and kiwi. Deficiency in vitamin C is rare, mainly seen in malnourished adults. Symptoms of a vitamin C deficiency include weakness, anemia, bruising, and bleeding. The health benefits of Vitamin C are numerous and are as follows:
Vitamin C helps to reduce stress because it is a nutrient that is sensitive to stress. It also helps to prevent the common cold and flu from developing into more serious ailments such as pneumonia and lung infection. Vitamin C offers various cardiovascular benefits such as the correlation with a lower chance of stroke. It also helps to decrease bad cholesterol.
Vitamin C helps with treating vasodilation by improving blood vessel dilation. It also helps with age-related conditions, such as macular degeneration, inflammation, and the risk of cancer and other cardiovascular diseases. Increasing Vitamin C specifically increases blood supply to ocular areas of the body, helping to improve vision. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects from damage caused by free radicals, toxic chemicals, and pollutants. Vitamin C can enhance the absorption of iron when consumed together
Vitamin C also helps to treat lead toxicity, a problem found mainly in children that can lead to abnormal growth, behavior problems, learning disabilities, kidney damage, and high blood pressure.
