Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a multitasking vitamin and antioxidant responsible for the growth and repair of all tissues in the body. It’s first on the scene to heal wounds and form scar tissue, help with the development of bones and teeth, strengthen blood vessel walls and assist with iron absorption and utilization. It primarily helps to produce collagen by adding hydrogen and oxygen to amino acids inside of collagen cells, which helps keep skin firm and prevent wrinkles.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that blocks damage caused by ever-present free radicals in the body. Though they are natural byproducts of oxygen metabolism, free radicals can alter the structure of healthy cells, which can only be neutralized by antioxidants. If free radicals are allowed to build up in the body, they can quicken the aging process and promote the development of serious disease.
We are unable to produce and store vitamin C on our own, so a daily intake of at least 500 mg contained in CanPrev’s Synergy C is key to replenishing what we lose through excretion daily. Certain medications like oral contraceptives, plus environmental pollution, smoking and illnesses causing fever and infection can all tap into our vitamin C supply, leaving less for metabolic functions.
Studies show that vitamin C can also play a role in lessening or shortening the duration of common cold symptoms when taken regularly.
