Researchers have long known that vitamin C is an essential building block of collagen, the structural material for bone, skin, blood vessels and other tissue. Failing to get enough vitamin C causes inflammation of the gums, scaly skin, nosebleed, painful joints and other problems associated with scurvy.
In another research, Dr. Pauling discovered that vitamin C is needed by white blood cells to engulf and absorb viruses and bacteria. In fact, a white blood cell has to contain 50 times the concentration of vitamin C as would normally be found in the blood around it. That’s how Dr. Pauling came up with the “take vitamin C for a cold” theory. In order to continue to destroy bacteria and viruses, the white blood cells have to accumulate vitamin C all the time to keep up the 50-times concentration. So, vitamin C is being moved through the cell membranes into the white blood cells all over your body, all the time. Whoa! Pretty impressive!
Vitamin C is found in a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.
Good sources include:
-oranges and orange juice
-red and green peppers
How much vitamin C do I need?
Adults need 40mg of vitamin C a day.
Vitamin C cannot be stored in the body, so you need it in your diet every day.
In our fast paced lifestyle I’m glad I have Super C up my sleeve.
Super C not only contains 2,166% of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin C per serving, but it is also fortified with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids and minerals to balance electrolytes and enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C. The essential oils that are added may also increase bioflavonoid activity.
