Vitamin C, a widely used water-soluble vitamin is known for its numerous health benefits.  Vitamin C plays a vital role as a co-factor in a variety of bodily functions.  It is among the most essential nutrients needed for tissue building.  Vitamin C acts as an important co-factor in building and maintaining body tissues especially the cartilage, dentin, skin, capillary walls and bones.  Ascorbic acid helps in the formation of mature and firm collagen, the intercellular cement substance that binds body cells together to form strong tissues. 

Ascorbic acid enhances resistance to stress. It promotes health of the adrenal gland, the organ where anti-stress substances are produced.  Vitamin C also participates as a co-factor in the synthesis of epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are commonly known as adrenalin compounds.  These anti-stress substances are released from the adrenals in response to stress.  Upon stimulation of the adrenal gland during stress, vitamin C level decreases as the gland increases its activity in coping with stress. This condition requires an increase in vitamin C supplementation.

Vitamin C is known to increase body resistance to illnesses by enhancing the immune system.  It is said to increase the mobility of the white blood cells, thereby improving the body’s ability to fight infection.  Ascorbic acid alleviates the clinical manifestations and shortening the duration of certain diseases like the common cold.

Vitamin C is also known for its antioxidant properties. Vitamin C protects the body cells against damaging effects of harmful substances called free radicals.  Numerous researchers have also underscored the role of vitamin C in regulating blood cholesterol metabolism.  Vitamin C is specifically required in the reaction which converts cholesterol to cholic acid. Vitamin C is known to protect against cardiovascular diseases, asthma, respiratory tract infections, and in preventing certain cancers.

Numerous researches affirm the popular concept that the vitamin C pool in the body must be increased so that tissues will reach a certain level of vitamin C saturation that is required for optimum health.
