Facts On Vitamin C

Benefits And Uses For Vitamin C:

Where do we start?  Well known for its ability to ward off colds, that's just where the antioxidant Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) starts.  Vitamin C is used by the body to process hydrogen, support cell structure, transmit nerve impulses, heal wounds/fractures, and reduce infection.  Recent information suggests Vitamin C may help to prevent cardio vascular diseases and certain cancers.  For more detail, here are some recent best-selling books with facts on vitamin C.

Note:  Since I supplement with Organic Germanium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Zinc, I don't get more than a minor cold each year.  At the first sign of a cold, I take 100,000 IU of Vitamin A, 150mg of Zinc and 1,000mg of Vitamin C...Once.  This usually stops my cold within 24 hours.  Glen 

Deficiency Symptoms Of Vitamin C:

Scurvy, poor bones, hemorrhage, muscle degeneration, stunted growth, anemia, susceptibility to cold and infection.

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms OfVitamin C:

It takes very large doses to produce any toxicity.  Excess Vitamin C can produce a false positive test for glucose in urine.

Citrus fruit, asparagus, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, melons, tomato, strawberries, potatoes, cauliflower, onions, cabbage, cherries, pineapple.

Supplements Of Vitamin C:

It's easy to find supplements of Vitamin C.  Though, a recommended daily amount is 35-80 mg, Many people, including myself, supplement 1,000 mg per day.  This is because of the many benefits of Vitamin C that keep being discovered.  Here are some popular vitamin C supplements and products.

Health And Fitness For Life:

People looking for nutrient information usually want to avoid health problems, get the most out of life and the most life they can.  Not just physical existence, but mental and spiritual.  If you're looking for more than body or looks in your health and fitness goals, you can find it spiritually through God.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control and bring real health and fitness to your life.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God
