Vitamin C is required for
the synthesis of collagen, the intercellular "cement" which holds
tissues together. It is also one of the major antioxidant nutrients. It
prevents the conversion of nitrates (from tobacco smoke, smog, bacon,
lunchmeats, & some vegetables) into cancer-causing substances.
Did you know: China now
manufactures over 90 percent of the Vitamin C consumed in the United
States? China is the most polluted
nation on the planet (by far), yet most all vitamin companies use nutrients
from China to use in their natural products to save money.
Not LifeSource Vitamins! We
will never use any nutrients from China.
Vitamin C- Facts
- Vitamin C’s a vitamin that’s
water-soluble; crucial on everyday basis for one’s body.
- The key micronutrient that boosts up
one’s immune system; it can’t be stored within the body similar to the other
vitamins that are fat-soluble (like A, E, D, & K).
- Ascorbic acid’s used as food
preservative as it’s reasonably priced and it doesn’t meddle with the flavor of
food that’s processed. This determines adequate delivery of vitamins into one’s
body by means of food that’s processed.
- Raw vegetables and fruits must be
consumed as and when possible. They must be refrigerated inside air-tight
- This vitamin is effortlessly washed
out throughout preparation of food and its storage. Therefore, care must be
taken when you are chopping, boiling and cooking the food in order to evade
aggrandizement of a specific process.
C- Functional Benefits
· Ascorbic acid plays an essential role in the collagen
synthesis which strengthens blood vessels, bones and ligaments.
· It takes steps against the free radicals through its
oxidant- defiant properties and as a result aids in preserving and repair of
tissues in the body.

Regarding a Vitamin C Deficiency
Placid deficiencies source fatigue, swollen gums, lack in
energy, and nose bleeding. A fatal ailment attributable to unpleasant
deficiency of Vitamin C is Scurvy. It takes in account the subsequent symptoms:
soreness and swelling
Symptoms in Adults and Children
A vitamin C deficiency can result in a dangerous disease
called scurvy. Swelling of body, pain in the joints, bruising or bleeding very
easily and hair loss are common symptoms of scurvy.
These symptoms are signs that blood vessels in the body
have lost their strength and also signal a loss of collagen from the body.
However, scurvy occurs when a person has a vitamin C deficiency for a
substantially long period like 2 to 3 months. It is true that early signs are
not very indicative of the disease, but one can always consume foodstuffs with
a high vitamin C content to cure the disease.
When a person's body becomes deficient in vitamin C, it
can also lead to thyroid related problems and premature aging. The human body's
immune system also gets depleted and as a result, various toxic substances
become even more dangerous.
The deficiency symptoms in children are more or less
similar, apart from the fact that their bone growth may be impaired. This
problem is more common among infants and growing children.
of a Vitamin C Deficiency
C deficiency creates neurological problems
A recent study conducted at the Vanderbilt University
Medical Center, Department of Neuroscience in Nashville, Tennessee and recorded
in the Journal of Neurochemistry October, 2012, came up with some interesting
They used mice which were genetically engineered to
deactivate the genes that normally provide their own vitamin C. Of course,
those mice are kept alive and healthy by externally providing them vitamin C
with ascorbic acid (AA).
But for the purposes of this study, they created periods
of not providing AA and then reintroducing it. Before and after each period,
blood samples were taken. During each deprivation period, behavioral patterns
were observed and noted.
Depressive and submissive behavior was noted during the
initial absence of AA. Compulsions for consuming glucose above all other food
types were observed.
After depriving the mice of AA a second time, blood
samples indicated "... decreased blood glucose levels, oxidative damage to
lipids and proteins in the cortex, and decreases in dopamine and serotonin
metabolites in both the cortex and striatum." In other words, neurological
The miraculous results of IV mega-dose vitamin C or
liposomal high cellular absorption vitamin C have been achieved by
orthomolecular medical MDs who have used mega-dose minerals and vitamins for
decades, resolving extreme physiological and psychological problems.
