AOR Vitamin C
Ascorbic acid is vitamin C, a nutrient that is said to be essential for health since humans cannot make their own. Vitamin C was first recognized for its role in the formation of collagen, which is the connective tissue of skin, bones, cartilage, teeth, muscles and blood vessel walls.* Vitamin C may also be useful as a treatment for colds, likely due to its effects on the immune system.*
Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant. It is particularly important for protecting lipids and fat-soluble vitamins from the damage caused by free radicals, the oxidative byproducts of cellular metabolism.* Ascorbic acid attempts to help in detoxification and helps to prevent the formation of certain carcinogenic products.*
In addition to its roles as an antioxidant, detoxifying agent, and cellular protector, vitamin C also promotes effects on the cardiovascular system through its influence on elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels by promoting collagen production and healthy blood vessels.*
