Vitamin C is necessary for optimal immune function and better health. As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body does not store vitamin C and it must therefore be obtained through diet or other supplemental sources. Vitamin C supports numerous aspects of human health. As the body’s primary antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Vitamin C also helps the body heal wounds, repair and maintain cartilage, bones, teeth, and gums. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation. Studies have shown certain conditions can benefit from supplemental vitamin C including diabetes, cataracts and heart disease due to is antioxidant effect. Also, regular intake of vitamin C is associated with cancer risk reduction.
For all these reasons, it is vital to maintain optimum levels of vitamin C. However, some people find supplementing with regular vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can cause gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, or heartburn.
