VITAMIN C


THE BREAKDOWN
  • The key enzyme in collagen synthesis, which makes the tissues that connect bones, teeth and cartilage.
  • Heals cuts and bruises
  • Prevents disease and infection
  • Produces adrenal hormones
  • Builds up strength in the immune system


IN THE BODY
You must take Vitamin C on a daily basis to maintain a healthy system.


WITHDRAWALS
Lack of vitamin C can lead to a variety of health problems, including dryness of skin, fluid retention, pain in the bones and joints and in some cases, scurvy. Without proper amounts of Vitamin C, the risk for cancer is much greater and the chances of developing a serious cardiovascular disorder are high.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Vitamin C can be found in most fruits and vegetables.


DAILY DOSE
  • Men 60 mg
  • Women 60 mg
  • During pregnancy 70 mg
  • During breast feeding 95 mg

OVER DOSAGE
Taking too much Vitamin C can cause vomiting, loss of balance, cramps and rashes.


FIGHTING AGENTS
If you are a heavy smoker, taking steroids, drinking heavily, taking antibiotics or taking increased amounts of estrogen, your body may not be receiving the amount of Vitamin C you think you're taking.


SUPPLEMENTS
Vitamin C Supplements can stop a wide variety of infections including high blood pressure, cancer, cataracts, diabetes and asthma.


WARNINGS
If taken too much, Vitamin C can create Kidney Stones and may disturb the results of urine and blood tests.
