Vitamin C is an important antioxidant which helps to eliminate harmful oxidizing agents in the body. Its antioxidant action is two-folded. Firstly, it has been oxidized itself which will then regenerate already-oxidized substances such as iron and copper to their original active form. Secondly, vitamin C removes the damaging oxidizing agent in the process. It protects iron from oxidation in the intestines and enhances iron absorption. It also protects other molecules such as fat-soluble compounds like vitamin A, vitamin E and the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the cells and body fluid from being oxidized.
� Vitamin C�s Role in Protecting Us �
Vitamin C increases the activity of natural killer cells in the immune system to fight against foreign bacteria and viruses. High vitamin C intakes have proved to reduce the severity and duration of colds and allergy symptoms by reducing blood histamine concentrations. In other words, vitamin C acts as an anti-histamine.
In numerous well-controlled studies conducted on individuals with and without cancer, researchers have found that people with high vitamin C intakes had lower risks of many forms of cancer than those with low intakes. This indicates that vitamin C has strong protective effects against cancer.
� Vitamin C�s Role in Collagen Formation�
Vitamin C aids in collagen formation, which enhances wound healing and promotes good complexion. Collagen is the most important protein of the connective tissue which serves as the matrix on which bone is formed, the material of scars and an important component that attaches one cell to another. Vitamin C is capable of reducing bruises and promoting wound healing. Hence, it is used for skin problems such as aging, burns and skin ulcers. Vitamin C also decreases the formation of melanin to promote a fair complexion as well as to reduce UV-induced damage to skin such as freckles.
� Aids in Improving Male Fertility �
Studies have shown that vitamin C assists in the production of healthy and good quality sperms. High dosages of vitamin C supplementation can increase sperm count and motility to prevent getting an abnormal child. Factors such as stress and unhealthy lifestyles like smoking would affect the sperm quality, thus, it is important to include adequate amounts of vitamin C in the diet.
