Vitamin C is an essential cofactor for enzymes involved in the synthesis of collagen — the chief structural protein in muscles, vascular tissues, skin, bones and cartilage — and also plays roles in the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters, in immunity, and in prevention of oxidative damage.

Major vitamin C deficiency weakens vascular tissue — a condition called ‘scurvy’ — and causes widespread capillary bleeding, bleeding gums, and loosening of the teeth. Lesser deficiencies can be caused by insufficient C intake, physical or psychological stress, smoking, alcohol use, and infections. Symptoms include fatigue, lassitude, loss of appetite, drowsiness, insomnia, irritability, and lowered immunity.

According to clinical studies, vitamin C suppresses cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s; it speeds wound healing. In other studies, vitamin C supplementation (at 1000 mg/day or more) consistently decreased the incidence, symptoms, and duration of colds, and reduced the risk of pneumonia by 80%. In a study of 700 students, Vitamin C (at 1000 mg/hour for the first 6 hours followed by 3000 mg/day) reduced cold and flu symptoms by 85%.

ABOUT THE POWDER FORM: A level quarter teaspoon of Vitamin C powder weighs about 1200 mg.

ABOUT THE TIME-RELEASE FORM: The body can absorb only about 400 mg of unassisted vitamin C during a several-hour period. The time-release form parcels out the dose, improving absorption and duration of action. Lysine and magnesium are added for synergy in preventing certain conditions such as asthma attacks.
