Vitamin C: A Key Ingredient to Health and Longevity

Vitamin C is a well known vitamin that most of us have taken as a supplement once or twice.  The most known primary effect of Vitamin C is its ability to boost the immune response.  It does so by helping support the body’s production of lymphocytes and phagocytes, white blood cells that are the first line of defense when fighting off infection. It also has a protective effect on the white blood cells, like a suit of armor, limiting the damage that can happen from the toxins of oxidative stress.

Another benefit of Vitamin C demonstrated in clinical studies is the ability to reduce blood levels of uric acid.  Uric acid is a waste product of metabolism that can accumulate in the joints of the body resulting in a painful, arthritic like condition called Gout.

But most importantly, Vitamin C is very strong and powerful antioxidant.  By fighting inflammation and eliminating free radicals from the blood stream, Vitamin C is a powerful anti-aging supplement.  Reducing inflammation is key to tissue longevity and reducing the risk of chronic diseases of aging like heart disease, dimensia, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
