How Vitamin C contributes to Overall Health

How Vitamin C contributes to Overall Health

Let’s take a look at the importance of Vitamin C in our overall health and wellbeing. 

Vitamin C ‚Äď The MVP

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can be produced by a variety of factors, including pollution, cigarette smoke, radiation, and certain metabolic processes in the body. When free radicals accumulate in the body, they can cause damage to our cells, leading to inflammation, tissue damage, and other health problems. That makes Vitamin C the MVP!


‚ÄúC‚ÄĚ Stands for Collagen

As a disclaimer, the ‚ÄúC‚ÄĚ does not stand for collagen in Vitamin C, but it still makes for a catchy heading, right? Another benefit of Vitamin C is its ability to support the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives our skin its elasticity and firmness. Collagen production declines as we age, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. By incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine, you can help to stimulate collagen production and improve the overall appearance of your skin.


C-Ya-Later Hyperpigmentation

Vitamin C also has brightening properties, making it a popular ingredient in products designed to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. By inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color, Vitamin C can help to brighten and even out our complexion when used in skincare lotions!


Orange You Glad We Use Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin well known for its role in supporting a healthy immune system. Because your body cannot make vitamin C, it must come from the foods you eat or supplement every day. Research shows vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of tissue all over the body.


Wrap Up

Vitamin C is important for its antioxidant properties, it is also important to produce collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy skin, bones, and connective tissue. Also, it is important for our immune system function and helps the body absorb iron from plant-based foods.
