What is vitamin C?
Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is best known for its role supporting the immune system and fighting the common cold. It is thought that vitamin C may also help to maintain collagen in the skin and joint cartilage.
Vitamin C helps to protect cells throughout the body from oxidative stress, which experts believe is a leading cause of premature ageing and disease. It is thought that vitamin C achieves this by neutralising harmful ‘free-radical’ molecules that damage healthy cells. Vitamin C may also help reduce oxidative damage to LDL cholesterol, which can lower the risk of heart disease.
Why take vitamin C supplements?
Of all the vitamins and minerals required in our diet, vitamin C is one of the most essential. It is a water-soluble vitamin, which means that it is not stored in the body. Instead, any excess vitamin C is flushed from the body, and so a daily supply is required to avoid a vitamin C deficiency. As we age, the body’s ability to absorb vitamin C declines and higher levels are required. High stress levels, nicotine and illness can all deplete the body of vitamin C.
