Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals to prevent damage. It supports collagen production to benefit skin, teeth, and bone health. As a chewable tablet, this is an excellent supplement for children and for those who have difficulty swallowing pills.
Vitamin C supports immune system function and collagen health. The primary function of Vitamin C is to maintain collagen. Vitamin C also helps form red blood cells, provides antioxidant protection against free radicals, and supports the immune system.
Vitamin C's antiviral effect has been observed in many studies. Ascorbates have been shown to have specific antiviral effects against both RNA or DNA of viruses. They can enhance the production of interferon, which blocks the entrance of viruses into the cells. Ascorbates can help stimulate the release of antibodies and many components of the immune response, white blood cells, B-cells, T-cells, NK cells, and cytokine production, are all enhanced by vitamin C ascorbate.
Factors that can deplete Vitamin C: coffee, tea, smoking, illness, and physical and mental stress.
Drugs that can deplete Vitamin C: aspirin, anti-inflammatories, birth control pills, oral steroid medications (example: prednisone, cortisone, methyl-prednisolone, others), high blood pressure medications (example: atenolol (Tenormin®), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol-XL®), and propranolol (Inderal®))
