Vitamin C- Ester

I am no doctor, But....

When I think about vitamin C, I think about ascorbyl palimatate (also known as Vitamin C- Ester) and its' unique qualities. We all have heard that Vitamin C is good for you, but really Why? Why does everyone want to sell it to us in some form or other? The form we are always hearing about is L-ascorbic acid. It is in all citrus fruits like oranges lemons, limes etc.

L-ascorbic Acid also known as vitamin C is one of the trio of all star anti-oxidents, the other two are vitamin E  and alpha lipoic acid. Here are some reasons why you should supplement with vitamin C.

Vitamin C gooses the immune system by strengthening white blood cells, our chief defense against bacteria and viruses including colds and cancer ( according to Linus Pauling, Ph.D., Nobel Prize winning scientist). It helps give us energy by aiding in the production of other body chemicals like L-carnitine which transports fats into the mitocondria (the engine of the cell) where fats are converted to energy.

It helps produce neurotransmitters the brain chemicals that help the nerves in the central nervous system (which guide the brain) and the nerves in the periphrial nervous system (which direct movement) communicate. Without this ability to communicate we can't think clearly or move our bodies. Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen, the connective tissue that essentially holds us together. Without collagen, we would literally fall apart because this protein holds our skeletons together attaches our muscles to our bones keeps our organs and skin in place.

Vitamin C works miracles healing inflammation, according to Dr. Nicholas Perricone. During his pediatric training at Yale Medical Center, Vitamin C, when administered in large doses to folks with asthma, children and adults alike -the physicians found that there was a reduction in the acute attacks The physicians discovered two other important facts, it hinders the production of a chemical called arachidonic acid, which causes inflammation; second that vitamin C converts arachidonic acid from a proinflammatory chemical to a group of less harmful substances. It should be noted that arachidonic acid also plays a role in the formation of psoriasis and microscarring that leads to -wrinkles. This is all pretty impressive and yet there are studies that suggest vitamin C protects against heart disease, cataract formation and other diseases related to aging.
