GLOSSARY
VITAMIN C (ABSORBIC ACID)

Vitamin C (Absorbic Acid)

 

How does it work?

Vitamin C is an essential water soluble vitamin and is required in the body for many biochemical processes including maintenance of connective tissue, brain and nerve function, immune system modulation, antioxidant activity, antihistamine action and cancer prevention.1 Vitamin C is commonly used to prevent and treat upper respiratory tract infections such as the common cold and influenza due to increasing immune system function and reducing histamine levels.2 For this reason, vitamin C is often used to prevent infections after strenuous exercise training as the risk for infection is increased.3 Vitamin C has also shown to assist in preventing cancer, cardiovascular disease risk and diabetic complications, due to its high free radical scavenging activity.4 Other conditions that have shown improvement with vitamin C include asthma, male infertility, cataract prevention and bone mineral density.5

What results can be expected?

Vitamin C may assist in reducing the severity and duration of upper respiratory tracts infections such as the common cold and influenza; as well as preventing infection after strenuous exercise.6 Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and may help prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications.7
