Vitamin C
 
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for normal growth and development.
It is an antioxidant that helps maintain the connective tissue protein collagen in bones, cartilage, muscle, and blood vessels, protects against infection, and helps iron absorption.
 
Food Sources:
 All fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C.
green peppers, citrus fruits and juices, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, turnip greens and other leafy greens, sweet and white potatoes, and cantaloupe, papaya, mango, watermelon, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, winter squash, red peppers, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and pineapples.
Clinical trials of vitamin C supplementation have demonstrated a protective effect of vitamin C in health and disease, such as:
 
Bone Healing                                   
 Vitamin C is involved in synthesis of collagen and bone formation and another benefits of vitamin C in bone healing may be through its antioxidant effect.
 
Vitamin C deficiency has been associated with decreased bone density in a number of animal studies. In a recent human study, low intake of vitamin C was found to be a risk factor for hip fractures in the elderly.
 
 
 
Cancer prevention                                     
 
Many studies have shown that vitamin C intake is inversely related to incidence of cancer, due to its protective effects on the lung, breast, pancreas, stomach, cervix, rectum and oral cavity.
 
 
 
Age-Related Eye Diseases prevention  
 
Degenerative eye disorders are common among the elderly. There is evidence vitamin C can reduce oxidative stress and lower the risk of such age-related degenerative changes.
Adequate vitamin C intake in women under 60 years of age reduced their risk of developing cataracts by 57%.
 
 
Alzheimer’s disease control               
 
Patients with Alzheimer’s disease have low plasma vitamin C concentrations despite an adequate diet and supplementation with vitamin C may lower the risk of AD.
 
Skin health & Collagen production    
 
 
Vit C, the most plentiful antioxidant in human skin, forms a part of the complex group of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants that co-exist to protect the skin from reactive oxygen species (ROS). 
Vitamin C is also thought to promote faster healing of wounds and injuries because of its role in collagen production that is critical to the formation and ongoing health of the skin, cartilage, ligaments, corneas, and other bodily tissues and structures.
 
Diabetes control                               
  Vitamin C supplementation may assist diabetics in controlling blood sugar levels and improving metabolism.
 
 
Anemia prevention                                 
 Vitamin C play a key role in the absorption of dietary non-heme iron.
 
Cardiovascular Disease                           
  Vitamin C can protect circulating and membrane lipids from free radicals and improves the capacity of coronary arteries in patients with hypertension, ischemic heart disease and congestive heart failure (CHF).
 
Immune system booster                         
 Vitamin C increases white blood cell production and is important to immune system balance. Studies have related low vitamin C levels to increased risk for infection. Vitamin C is frequently prescribed for HIV-positive individuals to protect their immune system.
 
Gallbladder disease prevention                  
 Women who took daily vitamin C supplements were 34% less likely to contract gallbladder disease and gallstones, and that women deficient in ascorbic acid had an increased prevalence of gallbladder disease.
