C What This Stuff Can Do
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient—meaning your body requires it for physiological function but can't actually produce the stuff itself. So where's your body going to get it? We can help with that. Vit C is absorbed in the small intestine, has natural killer (NK) cell properties, and is a potent antioxidant. Its good work battling infection suggests C is a lead player in immune system health.
Vitamin C is a proven antioxidant whose efforts against oxidative stress make it a feared enemy of free radicals - those cell-damaging microjerks known to be the cause of many disorders.
Immune System Support
Vitamin C guards the immune system, knocking down the severity of allergic reactions and helping to fight off infections.
Vitamin C helps the body to absorb non-heme iron (plant-based, not hemoglobin-based) by binding to it, guiding it to the intestines, and ushering the iron through the absorptive intestinal layer.
Ascorbic acid encourages growth of collagen cells and the fibrous cross-stitching of tissue that helps wounds heal.
Free Radical Fighter
Vitamin C's antioxidant power protects the body from the damaging effects of free radicals, toxins, and pollutants that sneak into your body and try to raise hell with your cells.
Vitamin C support your antibodies - blood proteins produced by the immune system to fight infection. A ready army of antibodies as part of a good immune system.
Vitamin C support the activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells - lymphocytes that detect and attack wayward microbes trying to damage your cellular infrastructure.
Vitamin on the High C's
In the era of long exploratory sea voyages, sailors deathly ill with "scurvy" threatened civilization itself. Vitamin C was discovered in the desperate search for a cure and isolated in 1928. Later, vitamin C was found to help with iron absorption, fight oxidative stress, and bolster the immune system. Oh, and orange juice with breakfast? Smooth sailing.
Award-Winning Vitamin C
Nobel Price winner, Linus Pauling made headlines in the 70s by championing megadoses of Vitamin C as mitigation for various disorders related to oxidative stress, and for general health. Today, the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University is one of several global research facilities continuing Pauling's work.
