Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and a highly effective antioxidant. Vitamin C is required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. In addition to the formation of collagen, vitamin C is a key protector of the body from the ravages of potentially harmful free radicals, as well as an effective aid in maintaining a healthy immune system.
Benefits of Vitamin C
May help neutralize oxidative stress that can damage the immune system and overall health.
Essential nutrient in the development of collagen and the formation of bone building cells.
A powerful antioxidant known to offset the harmful production of the hormones cortisol and norepinephrine, known to contribute to high levels of stress.
In response to stress, the adrenal glands release hormones norepinephrine and cortisol, which suppresses the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to disease. Studies have found vitamin C effective in boosting the body’s immune system and antioxidant defenses and inhibiting the production of cortisol and norepinephrine and reducing stress levels.
During periods of high stress, the adrenal glands release hormones norepinephrine and cortisol (fight or flight response), which suppresses the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to disease. In our current high-stress culture, the body’s stress response is activated so often that the body doesn’t always have a chance to return to normal, resulting in a state of chronic stress. Vitamin C has been shown to enhance the body’s immune system and antioxidant defenses and inhibit the production of cortisol and norepinephrine, thereby reducing stress levels. Research demonstrates that supplementing with Vitamin C could be considered beneficial for high levels of stress.
