Vitamin C Benefits?
What are some benefits of taking Vitamin C. I'm currently taking 1500 mg of it and its helping alot. I'm just curious how is Vitamin C helping me?

A few years ago a cancer researcher came out with a paper saying that the best cancer and infection fighter as yet found was Interferon, but, at the time, it cost $15,000 a gram. The good part was that Interferon was a product of the natural breakdown of Vitamin C in your system. Shortly after that paper came out the FDA tried to make Vit C by prescription only. Guess why? The FDA says that the Rda for Vit C is 64 mg a day, just enough to prevent scurvy. Linus Pauling, who got a Nobel Prize for his work with Vit C and a second Nobel Prize for organic chemistry, said 1000 mg a day as a minimum and 2000 mg a day if you are sick. On a personal note, I was sick twice a year, for 2 weeks at a time, for 20 years, and was flat on my back for at least a week each time. To this day the doctors have no idea what the problem was. After I gave up on the doctors I tried Vit C. I took enough to keep from being sick and just below too much to get diarrhea. It followed a bell curve over 2 weeks with a peak at 40,000 mg a day – about 300,000 over the 2 weeks. I was not sick for those 2 weeks and after a couple of years of that I have not been sick since. I did not dissolve my kidneys, as some doctors said would happen. I did not get any Calcium build up or stones and did not dissolve my cones or solidify my joints. Try it, but drink a lot of water – Vit C is a natural diuretic.

It is an antioxidant, so it reduces your risk of heart disease and cancer. It also produces collagen, and helps you heal from minor injuries, such as scrapes and bruises, because it boosts your immune system. Vitamin C will also protect you from scurvy. Another benefit is that it will help your body to better absorb iron.
If you are have a deficiency of vitamin C, it is likely that you may experience these symptoms:
Swollen Gums

Wounds that don't heal

Easy bruising

Bleeding Gums

If you consume an excess of vitamin C, you could develop kidney stones, or experience diarrhea.
The recommended dosage is 60 mg/day for a nonsmoker, but the requirement for those who smoke is 100mg/day.
vitamin C is abundant in citrus fruits, and can also be found in tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, and even potatoes.

The functions of vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) are many. It's necessary to build and maintain healthy, strong tissue, especially connective tissues such as bone, cartilage, dentin, collagen and capillary walls. It can act as an antioxidant, has an antihistamine effect, may help prevent some cancers and can help boost the immune system. It's an essential partner of protein for tissue building and both helps the body absorb iron and makes it available for hemoglobin production. Unless you have a deficiency, you don't need an over abundance of it. This is a water-soluble vitamin and excess is excreted in urine but can cause diarrhea. The new DRI guidelines for adults establish an Rda of 75mg/day for women and 90mg/day for males. Smokers need 35mg/day more. The UL for Ascorbic Acid in the DRI recommendations is 2,000mg/day for adults.

reduces your risk of getting sick

Vitamin C is an "essential Vitamin." Your body cannot make it and you will die if you don't have enough of it.

Coming to America on wooden ships, 1 out 2 people died from a disease called Scurvy during the voyage.

Scurvy is caused by a lack of vitamin C. There is no drug that can ever "cure" it.

What about low grade deficiencies of vitamin C? Two time Nobel Prize winner Dr Linus Pauling published research suggesting that many forms of heart disease start out with low-grade, chronic Scurvy. The inflammation in the blood vessels leads to the plaque buildup which causes congestive heart failure.

vitamin C is used to neutralize oxidative particles in the body--they cause "rust."

vitamin C is also one of the building materials used to maintain healthy connective tissue. Lack of Vitamin C can cause your gums to bleed, and easy bruising.

It helps your body to absorb iron. Iron helps to produce hemoglobin in your red blood cells which transports oxygen around your body
