Vitamin C is a water soluble Vitamin that our bodies cannot make or store although it is concentrated in organs in the body that have a higher metabolic activity, such as the adrenal glands, brain, eyes and testes. Most other animals (except guinea-pigs) produce Vitamin C in the liver from glucose so adequate intake of Vitamin C is required everyday for normal growth and development in humans. Vitamin C is found naturally in fruit and vegetables but is destroyed easily by cooking or storing fruit for a long time.
Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant and contributes to the protection of DNA, proteins and lipids in the cells from oxidative stress or free radical damage. Antioxidants can help reduce the damage to tissues caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack the nearest stable molecule. This process can cascade leading to disruption and sometimes death of the living cells. Free radicals are created every day during normal metabolism. The body’s cells will sometimes purposely create them in response to toxins such as toxic metals, radiation, herbicides, pesticides and cigarette smoke. Free radical damage accumulates.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin with a wide range of important functions.
