VITAMIN C is one of the most important vitamins due to the multitude of its effects and therefore it carries important key functions within our body. The base of these functions is its ability to transport “oxygen and hydrogen”. Since it can bind oxygen, it functions as a catcher of “free radicals” (aggressive substances) and is a means of protection against cancer, arteriosclerosis and heart attacks.
As a result of that, it also protects the VITAMINS A, E, B1, B2, FOLIC ACID and BIOTIN. One of its routine tasks is to build up and maintain skin, connective tissue, bones and teeth. Furthermore, vitamin C improves the absorption of iron in the intestine, helps to fill up the iron reservoir and indirectly aids haematopoiesis.
Nearly all kinds of fruit, especially citrus fruits and juices made out of these fruits, are ideal suppliers of vitamin C, but also fresh vegetables provide your body very well with this substance.
People who are in constant stress and physical strain, pregnant women and nursing mothers as well as elderly and ill persons must especially make an effort to get an adequate supply. Also smokers need more vitamin C since they inhale large amounts of “free radicals” with every puff attacking the body. Under extreme environmental pollution an extra ration of vitamin C can be of great help. An overdose is practically impossible, since the body readily eliminates excess vitamin C.
