Vitamin C Powder
Vitamin C is a well known but still largely under-rated vitamin.
It has many important functions in the body, including providing extra support to the normal function of the immune and nervous systems, it increases iron absorption which is essential for healthy blood formation and it is necessary for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue, which gives support and structure for other tissues and organs.
Whilst many people know that it can help the immune system, only a few realise that Vitamin C is one of the key components in the making of new collagen, the connective tissue that holds our bodies together. For this reason it is now used widely in conjunction with MSM organic sulphur which also goes towards the making of new collagen and elastin. This powerful double-act is steadily taking over from glucosamine/chondroitin as the most effective way to maintain normal joint mobility.
It is now thought that certain genetic changes way back in our evolution have left man without the capacity to produce our own Vitamin C (along with some other primates and strangely, guinea pigs!). Nearly all other warm-blooded animals produce their own Vitamin C as required, and usually in substantial quantities. Scaled up to the average human bodyweight, other mammals regularly produce anywhere from 1g to 20g of Vitamin C per day.
Vitamin C can affect the blood sugar levels of people with diabetes.
