What is Vitamin C?
- A water-soluble antioxidant, also known as ascorbic acid
- Is found in some foods and is widely available in supplement form
- Is required for the body to make collagen, improves iron absorption, and promotes immune health
Vitamin C is not manufactured by the human body, but it is critical to several biological processes. As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals that are generated when the body converts food into energy and from environmental free radicals created by air pollution, cigarette smoke, and the sun’s UV light. Vitamin C is necessary for the body to make collagen which in turn, helps wounds heal and improves the structure of skin. It also helps the body absorb the iron that is contained in plant foods. And in general, vitamin C helps the immune system perform its normal function of protecting the body.
Vitamin C serves as a powerful antioxidant and because it is water-soluble, any excess is excreted in the urine. A high-quality supplement is advisable when one’s dietary needs are not being met by natural vitamin C from fruits and vegetables.
Biggest Challenge with Vitamin C
- Human body cannot manufacture vitamin C
- Poor absorbability from foods and supplements
- Causes stomach and G.I. irritation
Unlike most other vitamins, the human body cannot manufacture its own vitamin C and so, eating vitamin C-rich foods or taking vitamin C supplements is the only way to prevent a vitamin C deficiency, which in its most serious form is scurvy. Unfortunately, the actual amount of vitamin C that the body can obtain from food sources is limited and similarly, most supplements have low bioavailability. Common sense dictates consuming more vitamin C, but too much vitamin C, especially in a limited time period, can irritate the stomach and G.I. lining due to its acidity. Food deserts may complicate the issue of obtaining sufficient quantities of dietary vitamin C, which would make supplementation necessary.
