C Vitamins

Vitamin C has many important functions in the body. It is a crucial player in the production of collagen, which helps build blood vessels, tendons, and bone. Vitamin C helps to synthesize carnitine, which helps shuttle fat to the mitochondria inside cells to produce energy. Vitamin C also plays a major role is the synthesis of neurotransmitters that control mood. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps prevent the oxidation of key proteins, fats, and DNA inside the body. Vitamin C may also regenerate vitamin E inside the body. Studies have shown that vitamin C can block the damaging effects of nitrates found in cured or packaged meats. It has been postulated that vitamin C may prevent intestinal absorption or increase urinary excretion of lead. Vitamin C is essential for immune system health. Since vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and not produced by the body, it is imperative that enough is consumed on a daily basis to support proper health. The current RDA for vitamin C is 90 mg per day. The Linus Pauling Institute recommends consuming at least 400 mg daily—the amount found to fully saturate plasma and circulating cells with vitamin C in young, healthy nonsmokers.
