The Benefits of Vitamin C Vitamin C is essential for the formation of collagen in the body. Collagen is necessary for structural soundness of bones, teeth, connective tissue, skin, cartilage and capillary walls. Connective tissue plays a role in wound and burn healing.


It is important in protecting the body. By creating stronger tissue, the body can resist invasion by microorganisms and infectious diseases. Vitamin C increases immune function by helping to boost adrenal and thymus function. Smokers who also take Vitamin C, have statistically lowered their risk of bladder cancer. Vitamin C helps to cancel the formation of nitrosamines. These are present in many cured meats and sausages, which have been linked to certain types of cancers. Vitamin C also aids in the formation of serotonin. This is a compound that mediates our moods and sleeping habits. It is believed that a balanced state of mental health can be reached through Vitamin C supplementation. I must warn you, not all forms of Vitamin C have equal restorative capabilities. The most effective form of Vitamin C is the one that has the highest absorption rate. This Vitamin C is in the form of mineral ascorbates. It has the proper mineral transporters already chelated to the Vitamin C molecule. This causes greater assimilation and a more timed-release action. This form of Vitamin C is also naturally buffered creating a less acidic environment. The best formulations also contain bioflavinoids, which increase the effectiveness of the Vitamin C up to 50%. So eat right, exercise and take proper supplementation.
