Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for our body. It is part of something known as the antioxidant network, which includes other important antioxidants like vitamin E, CoQ10, glutathione lipoic acid. These antioxidants all have particular roles in the protection of the body from damage, and amazingly many of them help to regenerate each other when depleted.
Well known for its role in helping your immune system combat attacks from colds and flus, it is also antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-mold. Consider increasing your vitamin C intake when dealing with anything from warts to the stomach flu.
Another important role of vitamin C is that in our natural production of collagen. Collagen is an important protein in the making of connective tissues, so is very important in tissues like skin, mucous membranes (like our digestive tract), teeth and bones. Having enough vitamin C for ample collagen production can assist with recovery, maintenance and healthy aging.
Did you know that most animals make their own vitamin C as ascorbic acid? Therefore it’s not even a vitamin for them; just one of the many antioxidants their bodies naturally make. Bats, guinea pigs and primates (including humans) are amongst the few animals that need to get vitamin C from their food. Animals that produce their own vitamin C make more during times of stress. It is needed to produce adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine in the adrenal glands.
