The Power of Vitamin C

Vitamin C strengthens the capillaries and cell walls and is essential for collagen formation. It functions in protein synthesis by changing the charge of iron so that it can be absorbed, and it works as an antioxidant. It functions in the construction of protein from amino acids.

Its collagen benefits, which bind together the cells of connective tissue, help to promote healing, prevent bruising and keep ligaments and tendons strong and healthy. Vitamin C is necessary for healthy bones, muscles, blood vessels and cartilage. It's been known as the antioxidant's antioxidant, because it functions to protect both beta-carotene and Vitamin E from oxidation, too.

The Vision of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is concentrated in eye tissues, supporting healthy blood vessels and can play a part in cataract prevention, research suggests Vitamin C could lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a common cause of blindness among the elderly.

AMD is thought to be largely driven by free radical damage. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), sponsored by the National Eye Institute, linked AMD with nutrition found that those at high risk who took half a gram of Vitamin C, along with beta-carotene, vitamin E and zinc, slowed the progression of advanced AMD by about 25% and visual acuity loss by 19%.

A 2011 study by Scientists at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) showed Vitamin C may play a more important role in vision health than was previously thought.  Finding that nerve cells in the eye require vitamin C to function properly. When vitamin C was removed from retinal cells, GABA-type receptors in the brain, which help modulate communication between brain cells, stopped functioning properly.

The researchers believe GABA receptors elsewhere in the brain likely also require vitamin C for proper functioning, and that the antioxidant properties of the vitamin may "preserve the receptors and cells from premature breakdown." The finding could also have implications for people with glaucoma, which is caused by dysfunction of nerve cells in the retina and brain.

People are not getting enough

Most people, even those who have access to raw organic fruits and vegetables, don’t consume enough on a daily basis to get the vitamin C benefits they need. And other folks simply may not have ready access to a wholesome supply of organic produce.

Thus, the concern I have for potential deficiency levels in a good portion of the populations of the world… including the US. And there are other issues that can vary the vitamin C requirements for certain groups of people.

Vitamin C Deficiency... Signs may includeDry and splitting hair, Bleeding and/or inflammed gums, Rough, dry or scaly skin, Decreased wound-healing rate, Easy bruising, Unexplained and easy to get nosebleeds, Reduced immunity.

Who is especially at risk?

where to buy vitamin C powder organic
  • Smokers - Smokers may require more Vit C than non-smokers due to the increased oxidative stress from cigarette smoke. If you follow the RDA smokers are advised to consume 40% more than nonsmokers.
  • Mature adults (65yrs +) - Due to ageing absorption challenges and from differences in immune systems and lower blood levels of vitamin C.
  • Adult Men & Women - The RDA for adult men (19 years+) is 20% higher than adult women supposedly due to women’s decreased lean body mass.

Eating for Vitamin C

Camu Camu and Acerola Cherry contain the highest concentrations of Vitamin C. The most common sources of Vitamin C are from fruit and vegetables such as : Rosehip, Oranges, Strawberries, Raspberries, Kiwi Fruit, Parsley, Cantaloupe, Grapefruit, Cranberry, Watermelon, Grape juice, Red peppers, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Collard greens, Garlic, Lime, Tomato's, Lemon, Tangerine.

It is also found in some animal products especially in calf and beef liver, and highest in oysters and cod roe in seafood. Vitamin C chemically decomposes in certain conditions, most notably when the containing foods are cooked.

Cooking reduces the Vitamin C content of vegetables by up to 60%, this is possibly due to the destruction of the food's enzymes which is that much stronger at boiling temperatures.

The longer the food is cooked the more the enzymes are affected. Sadly too often when the water-soluble Vitamin C dissolves into the cooking water it is poured away and not drank, something always done by our ancestors and still by many of our senior citizens.

Its worth noting that not all vegetables lose their Vitamin C potency at the same rate with broccoli fairing the best under those conditions. In summary, it would seem the most efficient way to take Vitamin C would be to consume the vegetables listed above raw. Or taking our pure powder form Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid). Remember that each vegetable contains different amounts.
