Vitamin C is water-soluble‚ which simply means that it dissolves in water. It is absolutely necessary for the body to develop and grow in a normal manner. If you take too much vitamin C‚ it simply leaves the body through urine. So you don’t need to worry much about a vitamin C overdose; however‚ amounts over 2‚000 milligrams per day have been known to cause stomach upset and diarrhea. On the other hand‚ because any excess leaves the body‚ it is important to have a continual supply of this vitamin throughout the day. The body does not store vitamin C for later use.
Why is Vitamin C Important?
The body uses this vitamin to help grow and repair all of its tissues. It forms the protein that is used to make skin‚ tendons‚ blood vessels and ligaments and it works to maintain and repair bones‚ teeth and cartilage. It also helps the body form scar tissue to repair wounds.
In addition to all these things‚ vitamin C is one of the few vitamins that also acts as an antioxidant. Antioxidants may help protect the body from the devastating damage that can be caused by free radicals‚ which are harmful particles created whenever the body digests food or is exposed to toxins such as radiation or tobacco smoke. Free radicals may contribute to visible aging‚ so keeping a constant supply of vitamin C in your body may help you retain your youthful appearance.
However‚ it’s not just vanity that propels us to fight free radicals. Antioxidants may protect your cardiovascular system‚ among their other abilities. For all these reasons‚ it is important to make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C daily. One way to do this is by taking a supplement like Metagenics’ Ultra Potent-C 1000.
Vitamin C may very well be best known for its cold remedying abilities‚ but research shows that vitamin C supplements and vitamin C-rich foods do not actually reduce your risk of getting a cold. Despite that‚ you may experience shorter colds with milder symptoms if you’re in the habit of taking vitamin C regularly. Just be sure to that you’re already taking it when the cold comes on. It hasn’t been shown to have much of an effect after the cold has taken hold.
