Vitamin C – L-ascorbic acid or L-ascorbate is one of essential nutrient for humans and certain other animal species.
Fighting the diseases seems to be a difficult task for many people. While some have recourse to drugs against almost everything, others are calm and pay no attention to the symptoms, until they become very sick indeed. That is why we should not be surprised to read about new kinds of diseases having emerged from nowhere in the last years.
Do you know that Vitamin C could solve a lot of health problems faced by mankind? Vitamin C – L-ascorbic acid, contained in many fruits and vegetables, can help combat a variety of diseases. A series of studies were made, which proved the innumerable benefits of the intake of this water-soluble vitamin. You may read in many sources about its contribution in combating kinds of flu, colds, cancer and even the cardio-vascular diseases!
- Improves immunity. Vitamin C raises the immunity level of the body. By consuming it, you achieve an improved ability of your immune system to master innumerable microorganisms penetrating our body. The deficiency of vitamin C will weaken your immune system and reduce your ability to combat fatal pathogens, bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.
- Antioxidant. The antioxidants support the body in getting rid of the free radicals (side products of various metabolic reactions taking place in the body). When the antioxidants are quantitatively insufficient, the free radicals cause a multitude of degenerative and undesirably changes in the body. They also attack the body cells and are responsible for our premature ageing, erar and tear of tissues, being able to cause different kinds of cancer. Vitamin C is an antioxidant helping to seclude the free radicals, protecting in this way the body against several kinds of cancer and other degenerative changes. It is also helpful for maintaining a healthy skin, making it appear young, flexible and fresh.
- Prevents from cardiovascular diseases. It has been proved that Vitamin C is facilitating fats’ metabolism, which in its turn prevents from the accumulation of cholesterol and other substances, around the arterial vessels. In this way they are protected from clogging and reduce the chances of developing some cardiovascular diseases.
- An improved healing up of wounds. Vitamin C is able to assist the formation of collagen (a structural protein of the connecting tissue). It impedes in this way the healing up of wounds by helping to a faster formation of a new layer of skin, than the body could achieve when there is a deficiency of Vitamin C.
That is why if you want to keep your body in a good state of health without developing any kind of diseases, do include vitamin C permanently into your food regime. A large bowl full of fresh fruit (especially of the citrus family) and raw vegetables will always do the job.
Vitamin C is easily oxidizing when being exposed to the atmosphere and disintegrates. High temperature causes the same, so be sure to consume both (fruit + vegetables) whenever possible raw. Grant your body a healthy dose of vitamin C from natural sources and you will experience a drastic improvement of your health and prosperity!
