From the Manufacturer

Nature Made Vitamin C with Rose Hips is recommended for winter wellness and immunity. Vitamin C’s major role is to make collagen, an essential protein substance that holds connective tissues together in skin, bone, teeth, and other parts of the body. Vitamin C is also critical for the proper function of the immune system, for manufacturing certain nerve-transmitting substances and hormones, and for the absorption and utilization of other nutrients, such as vitamin E and iron. Vitamin C is also a very important and powerful antioxidant that works in the aqueous (water) environments of the body, such as the lungs and lens of the eye. Its primary antioxidant partners are vitamin E and the carotenes, though it also works with the antioxidant enzymes. Vitamin C regenerates oxidized vitamin E, and restores the antioxidant potential of vitamin E in the body.

Shopping Guide: Everything you should know about vitamin C

Also called ascorbic acid, vitamin C is one of the most popular vitamins in the nutrition sector in North America. It is essential for the maintenance of body tissues, the development of immunity and the protection of neuronal tissue. Since our body cannot produce this substance on its own, it must be obtained through our diet.

Portrait of a pretty woman holding glass with tasty juice .

Your diet can positively or negatively affect your behaviour.

In 1749, a Scottish doctor named James Lind discovered that a substance found in citrus fruits could be used to cure scurvy, a disease common in sailors at the time. However, it was only in 1932 that Dr. Albert Szent-Györgyi isolated this compound and gave it the current name of ascorbic acid or vitamin C.

Ascorbic acid deficiencies became a real problem and claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands. Even though suffering from a severe lack of vitamin C in America today is very rare, it is still possible to find too low levels in certain individuals, particularly smokers for example.

What is vitamin C exactly?

The term vitamin is composed of the Latin word vita (life) along with the suffix amine (organic compound). It refers to a number of different substances that regulate the enzymatic and hormonal activity of the human organism. These vitamins must be obtained through our diet, as our body cannot synthesize them on its own.

Vitamin C is part of a group of vitamins called water-soluble vitamins: these are vitamins that can dissolve in water. This class of vitamins – which also includes B vitamins – are characterized by how easily they are evacuated through urine in the event of excessive intake. This is the reason why it is deemed almost impossible to suffer from ascorbic acid poisoning.

Ascorbic acid is stored in the majority of body tissues, such as plasma, skin, neurons and glands. The highest concentration of vitamin C is retained by the suprarenal glands, the ovaries and testes. Experts believe that these specific organs require high amounts of vitamin C in order to produce hormones.

What are the different functions of vitamin C?

While its antioxidant properties are the most commonly known by the general public, the functions of ascorbic acid are actually more closely linked to the stabilization and protection of various body tissues. We summed up its main functions in the following list:

    • Neural protection: Mature neurons consume huge amounts of vitamin C to protect themselves from oxidative stress generated by their frenetic activity.
    • L-carnitine synthesis: Vitamin C is an important cofactor for the creation of L-carnitine. This amino acid plays an important role in energy metabolism, accelerating the burning of fat that is then transformed into energy.
    • Cutaneous enzymatic defence: Vitamins C and E work together to capture and eliminate free radicals partly responsible for the ageing of our skin.
    • Melanogenesis inhibition: Melanogenesis – the creation of pigmented cells, or melanocytes – is inhibited by vitamin C, preventing the formation of patches on the skin, such as chloasma or age spots.
    • Production of intercellular matter: This matter acts as a cement by binding cells and tissues and providing stability to the body’s components.
    • Iron absorption: Vitamin C is able to bind to iron molecules (either through diet or supplementation), altering its structure to support its absorption in the intestinal tract.
    • Protection of the cardiac system: Experts believe that ascorbic acid can have an antioxidant effect on LDL or bad cholesterol, avoiding its oxidation and subsequent accumulation in the arteries that may give rise to the feared atheroma or cholesterol plaque.
    • Neural development: Studies have shown that brain tissue – in particular developing neurons – require large quantities of ascorbic acid to mature.
    • Collagen formation: Vitamin C promotes the expression of genes that regulate the production of collagen. It also acts as a cofactor in stabilizing the amino acids needed for the synthesis of this important compound which contributes to healthy skin, hair, teeth and joints.

Scientists are still investigating potential new functions of this vitamin, which is currently used as an experimental treatment for different allergies (such as hay fever), age-related macular degeneration, cystic fibrosis or even as possible anti-cancer therapy.

What is the recommended dose of vitamin C?

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of ascorbic acid has changed over the years. It was originally advised to consume 10 mg of vitamin C per day, which was considered enough to keep scurvy symptoms at bay. Nowadays, it is believed that an intake of 100 mg daily allows you to benefit from all the beneficial properties of this vitamin.

In reality, experts simply have not been able to determine whether there is an optimal dose that can be applied to the general population. The assumption is that the amount of vitamin C required by our organism varies from individual to individual, depending on genetic differences, disease and each person’s metabolic rate.

People who follow diets rich in fruits and vegetables have an ascorbic acid intake ranging between 200 and 250 mg per day. These individuals tend to have reduced rates of cardiovascular disease and an increased life expectancy.

Consuming 100 to 250 mg of vitamin C every day would therefore offer the greatest health benefits.

How is vitamin C absorbed?

While ascorbic acid can be administered intravenously, it is most frequently obtained through diet or oral supplementation. In those cases, the absorption of ascorbic acid is primarily intestinal and has a high rate, reaching 90% – if the vitamin is ingested in small amounts throughout the day.

On the other hand, the absorption rate of the substance when administering a very high dose (around 1,000-2,000 mg) is drastically reduced to 40%. Not only that, most of the vitamin C that our body obtains this way won’t exert its beneficial effect and will be eliminated in our urine in the next few hours.

Citrus fruits have high levels of vitamin C.

This is why, to ensure proper and optimal absorption of this substance, it is advised to use small doses of vitamin C (30-100 mg) spread throughout the day. Your organism has the ability to store up to 2,000 mg of ascorbic acid, excreting the surplus of vitamin C and preventing its excess from accumulating.

Did you know that the majority of mammals are capable of generating vitamin C from other nutrients? Humans, however, are unable to produce this compound and must obtain it through diet.

What are the consequences of vitamin C deficiency?

It was during the 15th and 16th centuries that the lack of vitamin C was most problematic, causing the illness and death of countless sailors who embarked on adventures and spent months in ships without access to fresh food (especially citrus). This state of deficiency is what we called scurvy.

There are two different phases in scurvy, the first one manifesting itself as unexplained fatigue. It may also come with a metabolic imbalance that favors weight gain and eventual obesity. This type of hypovitaminosis C is the most frequently found in our North America.

  • Apathy, sadness and psychiatric disorders: Ascorbic acid is essential for the maintenance of neuronal health. A lack of this substance will lead to a series of psychiatric and neurological symptoms, ranging from simple apathy to paranoia and hypochondria.
  • Severe infections: To develop the enzymatic compounds responsible for fighting infections, our immune system requires large amounts of ascorbic acid. The lack of this substance will therefore influence our risk of suffering from a number of diseases.
  • Weakened gums and teeth:When intercellular joints become fragile, gums bleed easily and teeth can fall out.
  • Fatigue and weakness: It is difficult to obtain energy without ascorbic acid, leading to the appearance of asthenia or tiredness.
  • Anaemia: Anaemia can be triggered by bleeding and difficulty absorbing iron may be caused by a vitamin C deficiency.
  • Difficulty in healing wounds: Vitamin C is essential for the healing process and the synthesis of collagen. Without it, wounds may not heal or they may do so very slowly.
  • Bleeding and spontaneous haemorrhages: The blood vessels are weakened and will bleed easily with the deterioration of the intercellular cement that binds the cells together.

Who is at high risk of suffering from vitamin C deficiencies?

The majority of Americans have sufficient levels of vitamin C, this is due in great part to the increased availability of fresh foods, as well as the vitamin supplements found in most packaged foods. That being said, up to 5% of the population may suffer from hypovitaminosis C, with the following groups being most at risk:

    • Eating disorders: People following very restrictive diets – such as those with anorexia nervosa – may suffer from ascorbic acid deficiency.
    • Restrictive diets:There have been reports of hypovitaminosis C in individuals that suffer from allergies and whose diets have little variety. This also applies to people who do not consume enough fruits and vegetables for any reason are also facing a higher risk of suffering from scurvy.
    • Alcoholics: People who consume alcohol excessively tend to suffer from numerous nutritional deficiencies, including vitamin C.
    • Women taking oral contraceptives: The use of such contraceptives has been linked with a decrease in vitamin C levels in women.
    • Smokers: Regular smokers face an increased probability of suffering from ascorbic acid deficiency (18% vs. 5% of the general population).
    • Dependent persons: Children and elderly people need a daily supply of ascorbic acid. Their diets should be carefully planned, or they will be at risk of suffering from vitamin C deficiency.

Individuals in these groups should be particularly attentive to the onset of scurvy symptoms. The good news is that this condition is very easy to treat: consuming vitamin C-rich foods or supplements will relieve symptoms in as little as 24 hours.

Terry MartinDirector of the Delphi Smoking Cessation Forum

“It is estimated that smokers require an extra daily intake of 35 mg of vitamin C compared to non-smokers.”

What foods are rich in vitamin C?

Varying amounts of ascorbic acid can be found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Citrus fruits and berries present particularly high contents of vitamin C, as do certain vegetables like broccoli. The following table indicates the content of the foods richest in vitamin C:

It’s important that you keep in mind that the ascorbic acid values in the table above represent the content found in raw foods. Cooking fruits and vegetables will alter their vitamin C content, reducing it in most cases. This is why you are strongly encouraged to consume these foods raw or undercooked.

That being said, certain foods cannot be eaten raw, such as potatoes. In that case, you are advised to cook them for as little time as possible, preferably using cooking methods that preserve the vitamins the most. One useful tip is, for instance, to bake your potatoes with the skin, as this preserves a higher content of ascorbic acid compared to peeled potatoes.

What are the benefits of a healthy intake of vitamin C?

A diet rich in ascorbic acid will help maintain your body’s homeostasis – its ability to preserve internal balance. The consumption of vitamin C offers various benefits, which will appear within a few hours or days after ingestion. The condition of your skin, brain, bones an immune system are all positively affected by the presence of vitamin C:

    • Prevention of ageing: Vitamin C reduces the deterioration of your skin and other tissues, hence slowing down the ageing process.
    • Lower uric acid levels: Excess uric acid is linked to the appearance of diseases such as gout. Various research has shown that vitamin C intake can decrease uric acid levels in the blood.
    • Cutaneous protection: The ascorbic acid stored in your skin protects the epidermis from the negative action of sunlight and radiation.
    • Healing of ulcers, burns and other wounds: High vitamin C levels contribute to the production of collagen and other skin components that are required for prompt wound healing.
    • Increased feeling of energy and vitality: High enough ascorbic acid supplies will contribute to your normal energy metabolism and will counteract both fatigue and apathy.
    • Reduction of cardiovascular risks: Vitamin C can reduce your risk of cardiovascular complications by avoiding the oxidation and deposition of atheromatous plaques.
    • Reduction in the symptoms of anaemia: A diet rich in vitamin C favors the absorption of iron, hence alleviating anaemic symptoms. This is particularly interesting for vegan and vegetarian individuals, since the iron found in plant foods is absorbed with more difficulty than that of animal products.
    • Weight control: Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of L-carnitine and for the correct metabolism of fats. Optimal ascorbic acid levels boost lipolysis (fat burning) and contribute to controlling body weight.
    • Reduction of convalescence period: Certain studies have demonstrated a correlation between high ascorbic acid consumption and a shorter length of the disease, as well as less intense symptoms.

There are still many studies on vitamin C underway. It is possible that this substance can also slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, alleviate the symptoms of numerous allergic reactions, treat chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or act as an analgesic. The latest research on ascorbic acid are indeed very promising.

Who should take a vitamin C supplement?

You are always encouraged to obtain your daily intake of vitamin C directly from a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. That being said, the daily demands of the American dream – for instance a strenuous work schedule or insufficient time to cook – can make it very hard for you to meet your RDA. This is when vitamin C supplements come in handy, as you can easily add them to your diet.

Smokers who take oral contraceptives or those who are trying to lose weight will greatly benefit from ascorbic acid supplements. Individuals who suffer from anaemia can also take vitamin C to promote the absorption of iron from their diet or medical treatment, therefore speeding their recovery.

Vitamin C significantly increases our well-being.

Finally, a positive relation was identified between ascorbic acid supplementation and a decrease in high blood pressure. Researchers have indeed observed a reduction of 5 mm Hg of diastolic pressure and a drop of 1.5 mmHg of systolic pressure in hypertensive patients. This proves that vitamin C intake may help control hypertension.

Dr. Josh AxeClinical Nutritionist & Health Author

“Interestingly enough, one study actually found that consuming 100 milligrams of vitamin C alongside a meal increased iron absorption by a whopping 67 percent.”

What types of vitamin C supplements are there?

If you simply cannot reach your ascorbic acid RDA through your diet only, you are encouraged to use supplements. You’ll find different types of vitamin C supplements on American markets, making it easier for you to get a product that is tailored to your personal needs. Here is a list of the most common types of supplements and how they work:

    • Topical vitamin C: You can also find ascorbic acid creams and powders on the market. These products are purely for cosmetic use. The work by contributing to blurring appearing spots and skin tone irregularities. This method only allows a minimal quantity of vitamin C to pass into your blood.
    • Vitamin C bound to minerals or salts: Vitamin C is sometimes associated with minerals such as zinc, calcium or magnesium. This form is much more tolerable for the stomach and is recommended for individuals suffering from intestinal discomfort after taking ascorbic acid supplements.
    • Ascorbic acid: This is the original form of vitamin C. It is available in its natural form and as an artificial formula. The effectiveness and degree of absorption of both types of ascorbic acid are very similar. Note that they can be hard to digest and produce diarrhoea or heartburn, especially in high doses.
    • Vitamin C with bioflavonoids: Bioflavonoids are plant-based compounds that confer antioxidant properties and promote the absorption of vitamin C.

Individuals seeking to enhance their vitamin C absorption should therefore focus on ascorbic acid-based supplements, or products with bioflavonoids. On the other hand, people who regularly suffer from heartburn should opt for supplements with vitamin C and mineral salts.

How should I take my vitamin C supplement?

The majority of manufacturers recommend taking the supplement once a day – be it in capsule, liquid, powder or effervescent tablet form. However, you can actually increase your body’s absorption by taking several smaller doses throughout the day: three ascorbic acid doses with your meals, for instance, will lead to higher absorption.

As you can imagine, it is more difficult to divide capsules and tablets into various doses. In that case, we recommend you opt for supplements in powder or liquid form. Consuming 100-150 mg of vitamin C with each of the three main meals is considered to be the most effective way to increase your levels of this substance.

Summary

Vitamin C is one of the most popular supplements in North America, and it really shouldn’t be missing from your diet. Ascorbic acid can offer countless benefits to your body, helping you achieve optimal health in a very short time. You’ll find this substance extremely useful, whether you want to increase your energy, improve the appearance of your skin or overcome apathy.

We hope our guide on vitamin C has helped you better understand this substance. You should now know exactly how to make the most of ascorbic acid supplements, and how to get the best products at the best prices. Give this supplement a chance, and we’re ready to bet you’ll be more than pleased!
