Is this a necessary vitamin or can our bodies make enough to satisfy
Many plants and animals do not need to consume foods high in ascorbic acid
to meet their need for Vitamin C because they are genetically programmed to
produce enzymes that convert glucose into ascorbic acid. Unfortunately,
humans have only 3 of the 4 enzymes necessary for internal production of
ascorbic acid, therefore we must satisfy our physical needs for this
important vitamin through our intake of foods rich in vitamin C and/or take
a good supplement.*
What is the function of the Citrus Bioflavonoids?
Bioflavonoids are biologically active Flavonoid compounds found throughout
the entire plant kingdom. Since the discovery of Flavonoids in 1936 when
they were first isolated from lemons and called citrin and Vitamin P over
4,000 different types have been characterized. Though there are several
forms of Bioflavonoids in the complex the predominant form is Hesperidin.
These Flavonoids exhibit beneficial effects on capillary permeability and
therefore support blood flow. They are antioxidants that work
synergistically with Vitamin C as well as exhibiting anti-inflammatory
Why are there color variations in your different Vitamin C products,
and are they safe to take?
Most natural Vitamin C products vary in color from batch to batch and
bottle to bottle. There are normal variations in the color of the raw
material used during manufacturing, which is a normal occurrence. This is
due to natural color variations in the source of the Vitamin C – generally,
you will find C supplements to range in color from a light tan color to a
light gray color.
Over the course of the shelf-life of a Vitamin C supplement, oxidation can
cause a slight change in color, this is a normal occurrence and the product
is safe to use up until the expiration date, and even beyond. LifeSource is
generally conservative with expiration dates, so a Vitamin C product is
still safe after the date, (which is usually 2 years) it just may not be as
effective due to oxidation.
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 is 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 the
aggrandizement of a specific process.*
Vitamin 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
Essential for healthy teeth and gums.*
Aids in the emission of the adrenal hormones*
Augments calcium and iron absorption*
Efficient antiviral agent*
Takes steps in improving immunity and fighting against infections*
Puts off arteriosclerosis*
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:
Joint soreness and swelling
Delayed injury healing

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 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.
Symptoms of a Vitamin C Deficiency
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
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
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
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.
Vitamin C's major role is to make collagen, the main protein substance of
the human body that holds connective tissues together in skin, bone, teeth,
and other parts of the body. Vitamin C is also critical for the proper
function of our immune system, for manufacturing certain nerve transmitting
substances and hormones, and for the absorption and utilization of other
nutrients, such as Vitamin E and Iron. Vitamin C is also a very important
and powerful antioxidant that works in the aqueous (water) environments of
the body, such as the lungs and lens of the eye. Its primary antioxidant
partners are Vitamin E and the carotenes, as well as working along with the
antioxidant enzymes. Vitamin C regenerates oxidized Vitamin E, and restores
the antioxidant potential of Vitamin E in the body. Chewable Vitamin C is
recommended to be part of a daily regimen.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that functions as a powerful
antioxidant. Acting as an antioxidant, one of vitamin C's important
functions is to protect LDL cholesterol from oxidative damage. (Only when
LDL is damaged, does cholesterol appear to lead to heart disease, and
vitamin C may be the most important antioxidant protector of LDL.)
Vitamin C is needed to make collagen, the “glue” that strengthens many
parts of the body, such as muscles and blood vessels. Vitamin C also plays
important roles in wound healing and as a natural antihistamine. This
vitamin also aids in the formation of liver bile and helps to fight viruses
and to detoxify alcohol and other substances.
Although vitamin C appears to have only a small effect in preventing the
common cold, it reduces the duration and severity of a cold. Large amounts
of vitamin C (e.g., 1-8 grams daily) taken at the onset of a cold episode
shorten the duration of illness by an average of 23%.
Recently, researchers have shown that vitamin C improves nitric oxide
activity. Nitric oxide is needed for the dilation of blood vessels,
potentially important in lowering blood pressure and preventing spasm of
arteries in the heart that might otherwise lead to heart attacks. Vitamin C
has reversed the dysfunction of cells lining blood vessels. The
normalization of the functioning of these cells may be linked to the
prevention of heart disease.
Evidence indicates that vitamin C levels in the eye decrease with age and
that supplementing with vitamin C prevents this decrease, leading to a
lower risk of developing cataracts. Healthy people have been reported to be
more likely to take vitamin C and vitamin E supplements than those with
cataracts in some, but not all, studies.
Vitamin C has been reported to reduce the activity of the enzyme aldose
reductase in people. Aldose reductase is the enzyme responsible for the
accumulation of sorbitol in eyes, nerves, and kidneys of people with
diabetes. This accumulation is believed to be responsible for the
deterioration of these parts of the body associated with diabetes.
Therefore, interference with the activity of aldose reductase theoretically
helps protect people with diabetes.
