Vitamin C is vital for tissue growth and repair, the formation of teeth and bones, wound healing, and resistance to infections.

The synergism of the two vitamins produces a greater effect than either vitamin can produce on its own.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. It promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation and is a vital co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. More Vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.

How much Vitamin C do we need?
Vitamin C is a “water soluble” vitamin which means that it “washes out” of the body every day. Yesterday”s excess Vitamin C is gone today! After 10 to 20 days your Vitamin C is totally gone in the absence of further ingestion. Vitamin C is a major anti-oxidant in the body and needs to be replaced daily. Vitamin C is absorbed by the intestines. The presence of large quantities of sugar either in the intestines or in the blood can slow absorption. Once ingested, Vitamin C is readily absorbed by the intestines and continues through the watery components tissues that make up the human body and is said to uphold the body’s natural equilibrium.
Many people think they are doing very well when they take 500 milligrams, or even 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is so cheap and so beneficial that just about everyone ought to be taking much larger doses. The actual amount of Vitamin C that will be used in the body depends on the health or sickness of the body. The body, in some cases, can absorb as much as 50,000 mg. The minimum daily requirement of Vitamin C was based on keeping a person from getting scurvy and not health.
When there is a sudden demand placed on the body where several thousand milligrams of Vitamin C might be “used up” in just a few hours, you will need to take more. Or, you may go through several very calm days, no stress, and not need more than a small amount of Vitamin C each of those days. Some people believe that when your urine is yellow you are probably excreting an excess of Vitamin C that was taken. This is surely one of the cheapest forms of health insurance ever invented. What you should worry about is when and if your urine is NOT yellow. That might mean that ALL the Vitamin C you are taking got used up and that, perhaps, you should even take MORE!
In body pH, you need to be more alkaline than acidic to maintain good health. If you are acidic, you are more prone to sickness & disease. When you are more alkaline, and eat alkaline foods, your body is more resistant to sickness & disease. So in relation to vitamin C, there are 2 main forms, ie…
Ascorbate = alkaline
Ascorbic = acidic
When you take an ascorbate form, it makes your body more alkaline, which resists sickness & disease. When you take an acidic form, your body becomes more acidic, which allows sickness & disease. Our Vitamin C is Ascorbate, and therefore is made alkamine and resists sickness and disease.
