Many people ask what is vitamin C? Vitamin C is a white, crystalline, water-soluble natural vitamin found in citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit. Vitamin C is one of the natural antioxidants and scavenges free radicals in the body to protect the tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C helps the body to absorb iron, at the same time preventing its oxidation. It is also a vital cofactor in the formation of collagen, the main component of connective tissue, which supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is a natural immune booster, and works by boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes, which make up about 25% of all white blood cells (leukocytes). The health benefits of vitamin C supplements therefore are far ranging.
Vitamin C occurs in the adrenal glands more than in any other part of the body. Higher levels are required at times of stress and this can act as a natural stress relief. Physical stress, such as the absorption of heavy metals, smoking, impairment of the immune system, extreme temperatures and the chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also call for an increased intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C supplements are a natural and safe way to increase vitamin C levels in the body.
Vitamin C is not produced in the body, so it has to be obtained through dietary sources. However, vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that is quickly oxidized and excreted, so its period of effectiveness is limited. Up to now, the only answer to this problem has been to takes doses several times throughout the day.
Studies have shown that one of the flavonoid antioxidants known as dihydroquercetin inhibits the oxidation of vitamin C, thus helping to maintain its concentration and recycle it throughout the body. The synergistic relationship between vitamin C and dihydroquercetin enhances the efficacy both in the tissues and organs. In short, vitamin C supplements with dihydroquercetin help to prolong the health benefits of vitamin C in the body.
