Why We Love Vitamin C

Vitamin C doesn’t just keep scurvy away. It’s true that vitamin C deficiency can cause this scourge of the high seas, but vitamin C’s benefits truly shine in the neurological department. Since this essential vitamin is an antioxidant, it protects your brain from oxidative stress, and it helps your other tissues fight back against free radicals too.

Vitamin C has a whole host of health-supporting effects including enhancing the absorption of iron and promoting the production of collagen in the body - to support healthy bones, teeth, gums and cartilage, as well as blood vessels. We all know that this vitamin’s immune-boosting effects have been overhyped, but vitamin C does appear to help you get over colds faster, as well as being a powerful antioxidant.

Let’s Look at the Details

Scientists around the world have found that vitamin C has amazing neurological, cardiovascular, immunological, and other benefits.

Neurological Benefits

The neurological benefits of vitamin C are profound and well-researched. This substance stimulates the production of a variety of enzymes involved in cognition. While the brain naturally produces these enzymes, it may struggle to produce them if you have a vitamin C deficiency.

As an antioxidant, vitamin C protects brain cells from the harmful effects of excessive stimulation. Oxidative stress leads to cell death, and vitamin C protects against oxidative stress in animal models.

Research has found that potassium channels play a role in depression. Vitamin C blocks potassium channels, which has antidepressive effects. A longitudinal study found that people who consumed adequate amounts of vitamin C were less likely to develop dementia.

Cardiovascular Benefits

Like other antioxidants, vitamin C appears to improve blood flow. Vitamin C may also increase the levels of antioxidants in the blood with some research showing that vitamin C may reduce your risk of developing atherosclerosis.

Immunological Benefits

While vitamin C doesn’t prevent you from getting sick, it does reduce the average duration of cold symptoms. Vitamin C may also be able to destroy certain types of harmful bacteria.

Other Benefits

Vitamin C supplementation reduces bone loss in animal models. This vitamin also appears to help the body eliminate toxic metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium. Collagen is an important part of your cartilage, skin, and other tissues, and vitamin C supplementation increases collagen production.
