Vitamin C – Critical Enhancement of Collagen Production and Synthesis

Vitamin C
and collagen work together. Collagen is an insoluble, fibrous protein consisting of amino acids. A healthy body naturally produces this protein. Collagen helps protect our skin by filtering out environmental toxins and other pathogens. It’s widely known for its vanity benefits. These include nail and hair strength and growth. As one grows older, more collagen is needed. This is because the body naturally slows down collagen production as people age.

Without adequate amounts of dietary vitamin C, the body can’t actually form or store collagen. This makes vitamin C a mandatory co-factor in collagen synthesis. It’s responsible for holding cells together during the creation of collagen.

This is one of the reasons why vitamin C is considered to be a vanity vitamin. It can help your body synthesize collagen which leads to healthy nails, hair, skin and other benefits. Due to vitamin C being water-soluble, the body needs daily refills of this vitamin. If your body lacks collagen, a quality vitamin C supplement should be a high priority.

Studies have found that people who smoke, and those who are exposed to secondhand smoke, have reduced amounts of vitamin C in their bodies. It's thought that
smokers require 35 mg more vitamin C daily than non-smokers.

Here is the study:
