- Vitamin C,
Vitamin C also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential vitamin required by human body. It is obtained from fruits and vegetables and is a complex organic compound essential for the growth and metabolism of plants. Human body does not compose vitamin C itself and it must be obtained from diet. Here are the main health benefits of vitamin C. As a healthy adult, RDA of vitamin C is 75 – 90 mg per day. People who smoke need an additional 35 milligrams of vitamin C every day.
Taking large dosage of vitamin C can enhance the vital leukocyte and improve immune system against pathogens. It is also necessary for collagen, the main structural protein found in connective tissue. A healthy dose of vitamin C will protect our body from infection and maintain healthy bones and teeth, as well as quicken the body’s ability to repair wounds.
- Common Cold
along with its immune functions that fight against bacteria, viruses, and infection, vitamin C also serve as an effective antihistamine that will lessen the unpleasant effects of the common cold, including inflammation, stuffy nose and aches.
Vitamin C is a powerful and effective antioxidant that protects our bodies from free radicals that cause oxidative stress. Excessive oxidative stress can lead to a host of severe medical conditions, such as atherosclerosis that can cause both heart disease and stroke, and is associated with many different types of cancer, including lung, mouth, throat, colon, stomach and esophagus. Vitamin C also helps to regenerate our supplies of vitamin E (another useful antioxidant).
- Cardiovascular diseases
Along with lowering the blood pressure, Vitamin C ensures proper dilation of blood vessels, and prevents the formation of cholesterol plague on the wall of the blood vessels, which in turn prevents such cardiovascular diseases as atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, congestive heart failure, and angina pectoris.
- Age-related macular degeneration and cataracts
The lens of the human eye requires vitamin C to function properly, and a deficiency can lead to cataracts. A higher intake of vitamin C has been shown to fight cataracts by increasing the amount of blood flow to the eye. Resarch suggests that vitamin C combined with other nutrients might help keep early age-related macular degeneration (AMD) from worsening into advanced AMD.
