What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant properties. It is a molecular bond of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Most people are familiar with L-ascorbic acid, more commonly referred to as vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body doesn't store it. We have to get what we need from food, including citrus fruits, broccoli, and tomatoes. You need vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
Vitamin C can be combined with other powdered supplements or dissolved in liquid for easy ingestion.
Vitamin C is important for many of your body's processes. You need it for synthesizing collagen, a protein that exists in your bones, skin, muscles and cartilage. Collagen strengthens the tissue that holds your body together. It relies upon vitamin C to maintain healthy skin, cartilage, bone and capillaries that aid in your ability to heal.
Carnitine is a compound found in the amino acid, lysine. Carnitine helps your body to metabolize fat, turning it into energy. Vitamin C aids in the transport of carnitine to your muscles, brain and heart. Carnitine is especially effective for preventing heart disease. Read more:
Vitamin C is essential for neurotransmitter synthesis, maintaining mineral and enzyme balance in your body. The neurotransmitters, norepinephrine and serotonin influence many of your brain functions. Your intestines, blood vessels and nervous system house these neurotransmitters.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant in your blood and cells, reducing free radicals that attack proteins and nucleic acids. Free radicals are odd-numbered atoms that cause disease, cancer and aging. Vitamin C pairs up with the odd number of atoms, neutralizing the free radicals before they can damage the cells.
If you do not take in enough vitamin C every day, you run the risk of contracting scurvy. Scurvy results in bleeding gums, ruptured blood vessels, bruising, decaying teeth, bleeding and resistance to healing. Untreated scurvy leads to death.
