Essential for healthy teeth, gums & bones, helps heal wounds, scar tissue, & fractures, prevents scurvy, builds resistance to infection, aids in the prevention & treatment of the common cold, gives strength to blood vessels, aids in the absorption of iron.
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, luncheon meats, & some vegetables) into cancer-causing substances.
Vitamin C- Facts
- Vitamin C’s a vitamin that’s water-soluble; crucial on an 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 a 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 containers.*
- This vitamin is effortlessly washed out throughout the 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.*
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 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.

Facts 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 into account the subsequent symptoms:
- Easy bruising
- Skin hemorrhages
- Loose teeth
- Joint soreness and swelling
- Bleeding gums
- Dry skin
- Delayed injury healing
- Hair loss
- Chronic anemia
Deficiency 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 is 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.
Vitamin 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 observations.
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 damage.
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.
