Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for our body. It is part of something known as the antioxidant network, which includes other important antioxidants like vitamin E, CoQ10, glutathione lipoic acid. These antioxidants all have particular roles in the protection of the body from damage, and amazingly many of them help to regenerate each other when depleted.
Well known for its role in helping your immune system combat attacks from colds and flus, it is also antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-mold. Consider increasing your vitamin C intake when dealing with anything from warts to the stomach flu.
Another important role of vitamin C is that in our natural production of collagen. Collagen is an important protein in the making of connective tissues, so is very important in tissues like skin, mucous membranes (like our digestive tract), teeth and bones. Having enough vitamin C for ample collagen production can assist with recovery, maintenance and healthy aging.
Did you know that most animals make their own vitamin C as ascorbic acid? Therefore it’s not even a vitamin for them; just one of the many antioxidants their bodies naturally make. Bats, guinea pigs and primates (including humans) are amongst the few animals that need to get vitamin C from their food. Animals that produce their own vitamin C make more during times of stress. It is needed to produce adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine in the adrenal glands.

Q: Why wouldn’t I just drink orange juice if I wanted some vitamin C?
A: A cup of orange juice contains ~125mg of vitamin C, along with 100 calories. Fresh pressed orange juice is delicious and healthy, but to really increase your vitamin C intake you’d have to drink a whole lot of orange juice! Organika's Buffered Instant C increases your vitamin C intake without the need to spend all day in the bathroom.
Q: When do I need a bit of extra vitamin C in my diet and supplement routine?
A: Vitamin C is required to help us get through stressful situations, heal and repair from physical damage, and to combat free radical damage caused by toxic substances like pesticides, refined sugar, and smoking. Take a look at your life right now - are you feeling overwhelmed with chronic stresses, having a hard time recovering from physical damage or immune challenges? Or are you just living a regular life in these times when prevention may take a little more than just diet? All excellent times to increase your vitamin C intake.
Q: I’ve heard that taking vitamin C can help increase my iron absorption. Is this true?
A: Yes, vitamin C allows for more iron to be absorbed by the body. It also blocks copper absorption - a trace mineral that competes with iron.
Q: If I don’t make vitamin C, does that mean I need to take supplements every day?
A: We also have many sources of vitamin C in our diet, depending of course on your food choices. Fresh vegetables and fruit in general have vitamin C, though it is lost with cooking and with time. Fresh healthy fruits such as kiwi, strawberries, papaya and oranges, plus veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and spinach are all great sources; some animal foods like oysters, organ meat and dairy also contain a little vitamin C. But the quantities are still quite low compared to those in supplements like Buffered Instant C, especially for those times when the body’s demands for vitamin C are higher.
