Vitamin C is the most popular vitamin and antioxidant. The body cannot make its own, so getting enough vitamin C from the diet is essential. Vitamin C is sometimes considered the “go-to” supplement as it has a wide range of benefits in the body. It is most commonly used to strengthen immunity and prevent the cold and flu, but it also improves wound healing time, boosts immunity, and promotes healthy, youthful skin, strong bones and clear blood vessels. Interestingly, the only species that cannot produce their own vitamin C are also the only species who develop atherosclerosis, ie. hardening of the arteries. This suggests a clear role for vitamin C in cardiovascular health.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, protecting the body from disease and aging and even helping recycle other antioxidants such as vitamins A and E, glutathione and lipoic acid, making them more effective. Due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine effects, vitamin C is also effective for allergy relief, and at high doses it can act as a gentle laxative for occasional constipation. Vitamin C is needed for the synthesis of adrenal hormones, making it an important nutrient for combating the negative effects of stress.
