Vitamin C is also known as L-ascorbic acid. This vitamin is an essential antioxidant, a substance that prevents or slows damage to cells caused by environmental pressures and stress.
Vitamin C encourages your body to regenerate other antioxidants in the body. Researchers believe that high blood levels of Vitamin C indicate good overall health. It can protect your cardiovascular and eye health. The vitamin boosts your immune system and longevity and discourages cancer and stroke.
Vitamin C is also critical in the formation of collagen, a major protein in tissue. It helps your body absorb iron from the foods you eat, and heal wounds. Your cartilage, bones, and teeth also benefit from Vitamin C.
Large doses of Vitamin C may also help reduce the symptoms of certain neurological diseases.
While a true Vitamin C deficiency is rare in the United States, the ideal dose of Vitamin C may be higher than what you can get from food or pills. Taking Vitamin C orally is not efficient as much of it is excreted by the body before it can be absorbed.
When you take high doses of Vitamin C orally, it often causes diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps, and other digestive problems. This is because a lot of unabsorbed Vitamin C just sits in the gastrointestinal tract.
Vitamin C infusions can increase your plasma concentrations of the vitamin far beyond what larger oral doses can.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, so your body doesn’t store it. You need regular delivery of the nutrient to maintain high levels.
