Vitamin C is one of the most important water soluble nutrients. Humans, guinea pigs and a species of fruit eating bat cannot manufacture their own and need to replace this vital element every day for the very growth and repair of bodily tissues.
Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system; white blood cells are activated by Vitamin C to enhance their ability to fight both bacterial and viral infections. Its anti-oxidant properties are more important in these modern times than any other nutrient, with so many aging and cancer forming free radicals in our food, water and atmosphere. Free radicals contribute to aging, cancer, heart disease and muscle and joint pain. Vitamin C is an essential co-factor in the proper absorption of iron, it is also required by the body to synthesize collagen, which strengthens the integrity of tissues and is an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. The healing of cuts, abrasions, burns, wounds and fractured bones is accelerated by additional natural Vitamin C.
If you have dry and splitting hair, gum infections, rough skin, colds and flu, you are probably deficient in Vitamin C. The severe form of vitamin C deficiency is known as scurvy a huge number of our population suffer from Sub Clinical scurvy which is seldom recognised today.
