The Power of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is commonly known as ascorbic acid, and plays a big role in keeping our immune system healthy, and is important for growth, development and repair of body issues (wound healing). This potent antioxidant protects us from the damage caused by the many pollutants surrounding us in our own home and outside in our environment.
How much Vitamin C do we need?
Since our body can’t store vitamin C, an adult needs at least 75mg of vitamin C everyday. People working on night shifts, smokers, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers usually need more dosage to meet their body’s need. It is advised to limit Vitamin C intake to 2000 mg a day to avoid stomach upset, however it is very interesting to read about the new progressive take on higher doses of lipo encapsulated Vitamin C to revive people from their severe conditions
Vitamin C is also involved in almost all of our body functions which include collagen formation, iron absorption, wound healing and maintenance of bones, teeth and cartilage.
According to Dr. Fredrick R Klenner, Vitamin C has helped him cure a lot of diseases such as pneumonia, encephalitis, herpes zoster (shingles), herpes simplex, mononucleosis, pancreatitis, hepatitis, rocky mountain spotted fever, bladder infections, alcoholism, arthritis, some cancers, leukemia, atherosclerosis, ruptured intervertebral disc, high cholesterol, corneal ulcers, diabetes, glaucoma, radiation burns - the list goes on...
A recent study published in Seminars in Preventive and Alternative Medicine, "Vitamin C has received a great deal of attention, and with good reason. Higher blood levels of vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health," says study researcher Mark Moyad, MD, MPH, of the University of Michigan. "The more we study vitamin C, the better our understanding of how diverse it is in protecting our health, from cardiovascular, cancer, stroke, eye health [and] immunity to living longer."

Natural Source vs Supplements
While there are no negative records about Ascorbic acid supplements, health professionals still prefer to get your Vitamin C from natural sources. American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Dee Sandquist, RD, suggests “to eat nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily, because you will get a healthy dose of vitamin C along with an abundance of other vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that are good for disease prevention and overall health".
