Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitaminC scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.24-31 Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation.32,33 Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.28-30
More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.34-37 Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals,38-43 cigarette smoking,44-47 immune impairment,48-54 extreme temperatures,55-59 and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.60
