Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble, essential nutrient that is involved in many complex functions in the body, including neurotransmitter, collagen, carnitine and tyrosine synthesis, and catabolism. Vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant, protecting healthy cells throughout the body, but especially in the lungs. Humans are among the few mammals unable to synthesize vitamin C, so it must be obtained from the diet. Dietary sources high in vitamin C include orange juice, strawberries, fortified cereals and most citrus fruits.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, absorbed by intestinal cells and delivered directly to your blood stream. Your body can only store small amounts of these vitamins – and then for only one to four days (B12 is the one exception to this rule). So you need to replenish water-soluble vitamins every day.
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
