Vitamin C - The Missing Vitamin
Facts on Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant. It is needed for tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland functions, healthy gums, skin and blood. It also aids in the production of anti-stress hormones, is needed for metabolism, protects against harmful effects of pollution, protects against infection, and enhances immunity.
Without it you can bruise easily, have wounds that don't heal, gum problems and aching joints.
Why do we need to take Vitamin C supplements?
As a place to start, there are only 3 mammals on planet earth whose bodies do not manufacture the Vitamin C they need. These are the guinea pig, the rhesus monkey, and humans.
The way all three must get the Vitamin C they need is through what they eat and supplementing.
Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid?
Most of the supplements you find in health-food shops, drug stores and supermarkets contain “vitamins” that are really man-made chemicals and “minerals” that are just ground up rocks or mineral salts.
These man-made vitamins and minerals are often labeled "Pharmaceutical Grade" or "USP" (United States Pharmacopeia).
For example, most of the “Vitamin C” sold in the US is ascorbic acid. This is a man-made chemical found nowhere in nature. There is no ascorbic acid in an orange, tomato or broccoli, or any fresh fruit or vegetable.
Ascorbic acid is manufactured in chemical plants by adding chemicals to glucose (sugar), applying heat and pressure, which converts the glucose to ascorbic acid. Not exactly like drinking orange juice, is it?
Ascorbic acid, being a chemical, isn’t absorbed or utilized the way food is, and can often upset the stomach and digestive tract because it is an acid.
In fact, Vitamin C in food is not acid - it is neutral!
The acid taste in oranges and other citrus fruits is caused by their citric acid content, not the Vitamin C.
Some companies will combine ascorbic acid with other chemicals to “buffer” it (make it less acid). These buffered versions are the “sodium ascorbate” or “calcium ascorbate” forms of ascorbic acid.
The bottom line is that these forms of “Vitamin C” as well as most other “vitamins” you find on store shelves, are man-made chemicals.
They are nothing like the true vitamins found in fresh fruits, vegetables and meat!
