Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the most important vitamins for our health. It strengthens our immune system, it protects us against colds, and it makes us more resistant to stress. Even the skin, hair, connective tissue and bones could not be formed without the intervention of Vitamin C, apart from other minerals, which is involved in the coenzyme that produces collagen.

    4. Intake of vitamin tablets and administration of vitamin C
    5. Who can especially benefit from Vitamin C?
    6. Where can I buy Vitamin C?

The consumption of vitamin C also strengthens the blood vessels, which avoids the deposit of cholesterol in them and prevents the development of arteriosclerosis.

Apart from strengthening the immune system, vitamin C is also involved in many metabolic processes, such as the detoxification and synthesis of collagen, which is a basic component for the skin, connective tissue and bones, according to the experts.

A vitamin C deficiency can cause disorders of the healing of wounds. This is why people with injuries or wounds have a higher demand of vitamin C, as well as athletes, smokers, diabetic people and women who are pregnant or lactating.

Ascorbic acid combats stress and protects the cells from aging.

Effects of vitamin C

Without enough vitamin C, the white blood cells or leukocytes cannot repel the infections that threaten our health. And since vitamin C is also responsible along the basic coenzyme for the formation of collagen, the body cannot create skin, hair, connective tissue or bones.

Another of the essential functions of vitamin C, is that it is a powerful antioxidant element that protects the organism from the free radicals and inhibits the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines. It also helps with the recovery of iron required by the body and, moreover, it combats stress.

Vitamin C supplementation is especially advised for the following cases:

  • Infectious diseases
  • Cancers
  • Injuries and serious surgeries
  • Burns
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • People with iron deficiency anemia
  • Stress
  • Practicing sport
  • When consuming nicotine, alcohol, or medicines (antibiotics, aspirin, contraceptives)
  • When there is a vitamin C deficiency due to malnutrition or dialysis
  • To prevent the onset of atherosclerosis, osteoporosis or cardiovascular diseases
  • During pregnancy and lactation

What foods contain vitamin C?

Vitamin C is present in almost all vegetables. Specially in acerola, cherries, rosehip, wild rose and yellow buckthorn, which have a very high concentrations of ascorbic acid. However, the foods that contain the highest amounts of vitamin C are black currant, guava, kiwi, peppers, citrus fruit, parsley and cabbage.

Learn more about the best sources of Vitamin and all the foods that contain this vitamin in this post.

What are the symptoms of a vitamin C deficiency?

  • Gum bleeding and loss of teeth (scurvy)
  • Depressive mood
  • Mood swings and emotional instability
  • Weak immune system
  • Frequent colds
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty to concentrate
  • Slow healing of wounds
  • Connective tissue damage
  • Muscle damage

Intake of vitamin tablets and administration of vitamin C

Experts do not agree on which should be the daily recommended dose of ascorbic acid. It is quite difficult to advise a precise quantity due to the fact that it has preventive properties for many diseases.

The daily dose for adults ranges from 200 to 250mg of vitamin C.

But, occasionally, some people take 1000mg for some diseases or when the individual is suffering from an excessive physical deterioration. This is why it is also very difficult to reach these quantities exclusively through fruit and vegetables.

To obtain 1000mg of vitamin C, we would have to eat around 10 kiwis or approximately 650 grams of parsley. This is why consuming a vitamin C dietary supplement (normally in tablets or capsules, as well as a drink depending on the new formats) is a very convenient choice, as it happens with many other vitamins and minerals.

Who can especially benefit from Vitamin C?

  • Those who suffer from gum disease or bleeding
  • People with injuries or burns
  • Pregnant or lactating women
  • Diabetic people
  • Athletes in general
  • People who have a higher need of vitamin C due to stress, smoking, alcohol, or drugs
  • Patients who suffer cancer
  • Those with a weak immune system who need vitamins to improve it
  • Those who need to heal wounds
