Daily Vitamin C has long been associated with good health – ever since the days that sailors discovered the potent effect of citrus fruits, in combating the perils of scurvy on long sea voyage.
Since humans are among the few animals who are unable to make their own vitamin C, they must therefore get it from their food, drink and other supplements.
The need for adequate levels of vitamin C is very evident. Science reports that one cigarette destroys 25mg of vitamin C. Stress, medication and environmental factors all heavily deplete the body off this vitamin. Deficiency soon results in bleeding; especially from small blood vessels (capillaries) under the skin and from the gums and wounds heal more slowly.
- It is a powerful anti-oxidant, forming part of the body’s defense system against the harmful effects of the free radicals.
- Research is continuing into the possible role of vitamin C in the prevention of disease/
- Vitamin C also has a mild histamine effect and increases the absorption of iron.
- Vitamin C is a truly beneficial supplement for the skin, as it increases the formulation of intercellular collagen.
- Vitamin C is necessary for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue.
Vitamin C plays a huge role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and preventing disease. More than ten thousand scientific papers have been written about the beneficial aspects of vitamin C, and it has been established that all body processes and diseases are somehow influenced by vitamin C.
When vitamin C is digested, it becomes a water soluble antioxidant. Because it is in the water soluble state, vitamin C can directly affect the free radicals in the body. Free radicals are molecules located in the body which are highly reactive, and known for causing tissue damage. They are also notoriously known for inducing oxidative damage to the inner body, advancing the aging process, and can also cause cancer.
Another function vitamin C influences is collagen synthesis. Collagen is the essential part of connective tissue. Connective tissue is needed to keep the body together, and is the very framework of the body - the skin, bones, teeth, blood vessels, cartilage, tendons and ligaments - all rely on collagen. Therefore, it is of acute precedence that there is a healthy amount of collagen in the body. This is the function, that when depleted of collagen, scurvy occurs. Scurvy is the result of deterioration of the blood vessels. Furthermore, it results in hemorrhage, bleeding gums, bruising, loose teeth, and the tendency for bones to fracture. It is vital for the body to receive an optimal amount of vitamin C because the production of collagen is linked directly to vitamin C; therefore, if there is a lack of vitamin C, there is an absence of collagen, and the body will literally fall apart.
Furthermore, vitamin C is vital for the cardiovascular system. When the body's arteries become clogged, there isn't enough blood flow to the heart which results in a heart attack. Vitamin C's antioxidant properties are absorbed into the blood stream, and can actually repress the accumulation of arterial plaque. Vitamin C can be thought of as a type of "Drain-o" for arteries. It cleans the arteries, and enables a healthy flow of blood to the heart.
Finally, vitamin C impacts the immune system. The immune system main operation is to protect the body from foreign substances or toxins. For the immune system to function correctly, vitamin C is a must. Vitamin C is extremely important in this function because it is involved with T-cells and white blood cells. The white blood cells function is basically to monitor various disease conditions. Because vitamin C boosts the white blood cell count, an individual who consumes high doses of vitamin C has a less likely chance of contracting diseases.
Oat bran is a soluble fiber found in unrefined oats. It acts like a sponge, absorbing water in the stomach and small intestine, slowing down the digestion process and giving a feeling of satisfaction, Research shows that soluble fiber can also help reduce cholesterol levels in the bloodstream.

Who needs Absorbent C?
Everyone who lacks a regular vitamin C intake risks catching illnesses; however, there are groups of people who are even more likely to get sick. These people, who are most susceptible to contracting disease from lack of vitamin C, fit into three categories.
Specifically, smokers are at high risk of a vitamin C deficiency. When the National Research Council set the RDA for vitamin C, they did not consider that the body metabolizes vitamin C at a faster rate in smokers and second hand smokers. The set RDA for vitamin C is 60mg, and, as mentioned above, one cigarette depletes the body of a whopping 25mg.
Moreover, alcohol consumers are also in danger of a low level of vitamin C. A large intake of alcohol can dilute the ascorbic acid in the blood, and increases urinary excretion of vitamin C. Therefore, those who drink alcohol, on a more than regular basis, can have a poor diet. When the alcohol is factored in, the body is lacking an adequate level of vitamin C. One study suggests that increased doses of vitamin C at 500 to 1,000 mg per day can aid in the treatment of alcoholism
Those, who have stress filled lives, especially need a higher level of vitamin C intake. When a person is under stress, the adrenal glands are depleted of vitamin C. At this occurrence, the blood reaches a high oxidation level which makes the adrenal glands unable to fight off toxins; therefore, to protect the body, one must consume a higher level of vitamin C.
