  • ANTIOXIDANT OVERVIEW

    Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that protect and repair cells from damage caused by free radicals. Many experts believe this damage plays a part in a number of chronic diseases, including hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), cancer, and arthritis. Free radicals can also interfere with your immune system. So, fighting off damage with antioxidants helps keep your immune system strong, making you better able to ward off colds, flu, and other infections.

    Antioxidants are compounds that neutralize the cellular-damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are produced naturally in your body, but when you exercise hard, your body pumps out more free radicals. Environmental factors such as pollution, the sun, cigarette smoke, and herbicides can also spawn free radicals. The danger is that free-radical damage may lead to cancer. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of the damage that free radicals otherwise might cause. As an active person, more antioxidants may help you slow the aging process, ward off cancer and stress, and promote good health.





    VITAMIN C ANTIOXIDANT DESCRIPTION

    Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, or simply ascorbate - the anion of ascorbic acid), is an essential nutrient for humans and certain other animal species. Vitamin C refers to a number of vitamers that have vitamin C activity in animals, including ascorbic acid and its salts, and some oxidized forms of the molecule like dehydroascorbic acid. Ascorbate and ascorbic acid are both naturally present in the body when either of these is introduced into cells, since the forms interconvert according to pH. Ascorbate is required for a range of essential metabolic reactions in all animals and plants. In humans, it is not made internally and is required in the diet (making it an essential nutrient). Deficiency of this vitamin causes the disease scurvy in humans. Ascorbic acid is also widely used as a food additive to prevent oxidation.

    vitamin C structure


    Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant that also protects and recharges other antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, to keep them potent. Its water solubility makes it an efficient free radical scavenger in body fluids. Some studies have shown that Vitamin C is the first line of antioxidant defense in plasma against many different kinds of free radicals. The cells of the brain and spinal cord, which frequently incur free radical damage, can be protected by significant amounts of Vitamin C. Vitamin C acts as a more potent free radical scavenger in the presence of a bioflavonoid called Hesperidin. Combinations of antioxidants seem to improve wound healing.

    In addition to its role as an antioxidant, Vitamin C detoxifies many harmful substances and plays a key role in immunity. Vitamin C is found in high concentrations in immune cells, and is consumed quickly during infections. It increases the synthesis of interferon, a natural antiviral substance produced by the body, and stimulates the activity of certain key immune cells. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine. It both prevents histamin release and increases the detoxificaion of histamine. A 1992 study found that taking 2 grams (2000 mg) of viamin C daily lowered blood histamine levels 38 percent in healthy adults in just one week. It has been noted that low concentrations of serum vitamin C has been correlated with increased serum histamine levels. Histamine plays a role in allergic responses in sensitive individuals suffering from allergies.

    Natural sources of Vitamin C include citrus fruits, papaya, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and strawberries.





    VITAMIN C USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is an important nutrient necessary for human life. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is required for the production of collagen, tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function, and healthy gums. There are several different types of collagen that serve a variety of functions in our bodies. Some of those types are found in the connective tissue of skin, bone, teeth, tendons, ligaments, fascia, organ capsules, liver, spleen, kidneys, and cartilage. Vitamin C is also important in protecting the fat-soluble vitamins A and E as well as fatty acids from oxidation, and it stimulates the immune system. It also aids in the production of anti-stress hormones and interferon, and is needed for the metabolism of folic acid, tyrosine, and phenylalanine. It protects against the harmful effects of pollution, helps to prevent cancer, protects against infection, and enhances immunity. Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. It also may reduce the cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, and prevent atherosclerosis. Essential in the formation of collagen, Vitamin C protects against blood clotting and bruising, and promotes the healing of wounds and burns.

    New evidence indicates that Vitamin Cworks synergistically with Vitamin E - that is, when these vitamins work together, they have a greater effect than when they work separately. Vitamin E scavenges for dangerous free radicals in cell membranes, while Vitamin C attacks free radicals in biologic fluids. These vitamins reinforce and extend each other's antioxidant activity.

    Because the body cannot manufacture Vitamin C, it must be obtained through the diet or in the form of supplements. Unfortunately, most of the Vitamin C consumed in the diet is lost in the urine. When larger amounts of Vitamin C are required due to serious illness, such as cancer, it is more effective to take Vitamin C intravenously, under the advisement and supervision of a health care provider, than it is to take high doses orally.

    In addition to collagen production, Vitamin C prevents and cures the disease scurvy, which is rare, except in alcoholics who receive their entire calorie intake from alcohol. It is also beneficial in the treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia. Some people claim regular use has limited the number of colds they get.

    Scurvy is a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. It is characterized by poor wound healing, soft and spongy bleeding gums, edema, extreme weakness, and "pinpoint" hemorrhages under the skin. Fortunately, this condition is rare in Western societies. More common are signs of lesser degrees of deficiency, including gums that bleed when brushed; increased susceptibility to infection, especially colds and bronchial infections; joint pains; lack of energy; poor digestion; prolonged healing time; a tendency to bruise easily; and tooth loss.

    VITAMIN C DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Several factors help determine how much vitamin C you should take, including your age and sex. People who smoke and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may also require more vitamin C. Dosing recommendations can range between 15 mg (for young children) and 120 mg (for breastfeeding women). Many foods already contain the vitamin, but additional vitamin C is often added to foods and beverages.

    VITAMIN C DOSES & RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE (RDA)

    The Institute of Medicine has developed two different dosing guidelines for vitamin C, the RDA (recommended dietary allowance) and UL (tolerable upper limit). The RDA is the intake recommended for the average person, and the UL is the maximum that can be taken without significant side effects or toxicity. Refer to the following table for RDA and UL values for vitamin C.

    18 Years & Under
    115 mg per day
    1800 mg per day
    19 Years & Older
    120 mg per day
    2000 mg per day

    For smokers, an additional 35 mg of vitamin C overe the usual RDA is recommended.

    Many people may be able to meet their RDA for vitamin C through food, since many foods naturally contain it. Also, additional vitamin C is often added to various foods and beverages. However, vitamin C content decreases when foods and beverages are cooked or stored. Frozen orange juice (the concentrated kind that is mixed with water) usually contains more active vitamin C than ready-to-drink orange juice. With time, the vitamin C in ready-to-drink orange juice oxidizes and becomes much more difficult to absorb.

    PLANT SOURCES OF VITAMIN C


    While plants are generally a good source of vitamin C, the amount in foods of plant origin depends on the precise variety of the plant, soil condition, climate where it grew, length of time since it was picked, storage conditions, and method of preparation. The following table is approximate and shows the relative abundance in different raw plant sources. As some plants were analyzed fresh while others were dried (thus, artifactually increasing concentration of individual constituents like vitamin C), the data are subject to potential variation and difficulties for comparison. The amount is given in milligrams per 100 grams of fruit or vegetable and is a rounded average from multiple authoritative sources:

    ANIMAL SOURCES OF VITAMIN C


    The overwhelming majority of species of animals (but not humans or guinea pigs) and plants synthesise their own vitamin C. Therefore, some animal products can be used as sources of dietary vitamin C. Vitamin C is most present in the liver and least present in the muscle. Since muscle provides the majority of meat consumed in the western human diet, animal products are not a reliable source of the vitamin. Vitamin C is present in human breast milk, but not present in raw cow's milk. All excess vitamin C is disposed of through the urinary system. The following table shows the relative abundance of vitamin C in various foods of animal origin, given in milligrams of vitamin C per 100 grams of food.

    FOOD PREPARATION

    Vitamin C chemically decomposes under certain conditions, many of which may occur during the cooking of food. Vitamin C concentrations in various food substances decrease with time in proportion to the temperature they are stored at and cooking can reduce the Vitamin C content of vegetables by around 60 percent possibly partly due to increased enzymatic destruction as it may be more significant at sub-boiling temperatures. Longer cooking times also add to this effect, as will copper food vessels, which catalyse the decomposition.

    Another cause of vitamin C being lost from food is leaching, where the water-soluble vitamin dissolves into the cooking water, which is later poured away and not consumed. However, vitamin C does not leach in all vegetables at the same rate; research shows broccoli seems to retain more than any other. Research has also shown that fresh-cut fruits do not lose significant nutrients when stored in the refrigerator for a few days.

    VITAMIN C SUPPLEMENTS

    Vitamin C is water-soluble and comes in tablets, caplets, capsules, and drink mix packets. It is in multi-vitamin formulations, multiple antioxidant formulations, and as crystalline powder. Timed release versions are available, as are formulations containing bioflavonoids such as quercetin, hesperidin, and rutin. Tablet and capsule sizes range from 25 mg to 1500 mg. Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) crystals are typically available in bottles containin 300 grams to 1 kilogram of powder (a 5 milliliter teaspoon of vitamin C crystals equals 5,000 mg). The bottles are usually airtight and brown or opaque in order to prevent oxidation, in which case the vitamin C would become useless, if not damaging.

    Read product label directions for use. Many chewable vitamin C products contain sugar, and all are highly acidic (which can be damaging to tooth enamel). It is probably a good idea to brush your teeth after taking a dose of a chewable vitamin C product. The more vitamin C you take, the more that gets excreted through your urine. While taking high doses of vitamin C is usually not dangerous since excess is eliminated by the body, it is not usually beneficial either. For better absorption of a water-soluble supplement, such as vitamin C, it is best to take lower multiple doses throughout the day than to take one large daily dosage.

    For maximum effectiveness, supplemental Vitamin C should be taken in divided doses, twice daily. Esterified vitamin C (Ester-C) is a remarkably effective form of vitamin C, especially for those suffering from chronic illness such as cancer and AIDS. It is created by having the vitamin C react with a necessary mineral, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, or zinc. This results in a form of the vitamin that is non-acidic and that contains vitamin C metabolites identical to those produced by the body. Esterified vitamin C enters the bloodstream and tissues four times faster than standard vitamin C, moves into the blood cells more efficiently, and also stays in the body tissues longer. The levels of vitamin C in white blood cells achieved by taking esterified vitamin C are four times higher than those achieved with standard vitamin C. Further, only 1/3 as much is lost through excretion in the urine. Natrol produces supplements of Ester-C in combination with other valuable nutrients: one with the antioxidants Pycnogenol and proanthocyanidins; another with the herb echinacea; and still another with garlic.

  • Health Therapy: Ascorbic Acid Flush
  • Because vitamin C (ascorbic acid) promotes the healing of wounds and protects the body from bacterial infection, allergens, and other pollutants, it is often beneficial to flush the body with ascorbic acid. This therapy can help treat chemical allergies and chemical poisoning, arsenic and radiation poisoning, influenza, and sprains, and it can help prevent other illnesses, including cancer and AIDS.

    If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or vitamin C dosing in general, please talk with your health care provider.

    VITAMIN C SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    HIGH DOSE SIDE EFFECTS

    If aspirin and standard Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are taken together in large doses, stomach irritation can occur, possibly leading to ulcers, particularly if taken on an empty stomach. However, taking Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate and calcium ascorbate may minimize this effect. If you take aspirin regularly, use an esterified form of vitamin C. When taken in large doses, ascorbic acid causes diarrhea in healthy subjects. In one trial in 1936, doses up to 6 grams of ascorbic acid were given to 29 infants, 93 children of preschool and school age, and 20 adults for more than 1400 days. With the higher doses, toxic manifestations were observed in five adults and four infants. The signs and symptoms in adults were nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, flushing of the face, headache, fatigue and disturbed sleep. The main toxic reactions in the infants were skin rashes.

    If you are pregnant, do not take more than 5,000 mg of Vitamin C daily. In a study conducted on rats, during the first month of pregnancy, high doses of vitamin C may suppress the production of progesterone from the corpus luteum. Progesterone, necessary for the maintenance of a pregnancy, is produced by the corpus luteum for the first few weeks, until the placenta is developed enough to produce its own source. By blocking this function of the corpus luteum, high doses of vitamin C (greater than 1000 mg) are theorized to induce an early miscarriage. In a group of spontaneously aborting women at the end of the first trimester, the mean values of vitamin C were significantly higher in the aborting group. However, the authors do state: 'This could not be interpreted as an evidence of causal association.' However, in a previous study of 79 women with threatened, previous spontaneous, or habitual abortion, Javert and Stander (1943) had 91 percent success with 33 patients who received vitamin C together with bioflavonoids and vitamin K (only three abortions), whereas all of the 46 patients who did not receive the vitamins aborted. It has also been suggested that infants may become dependent on this supplement and develop scurvy when deprived of the accustomed megadoses after birth.

    As vitamin C enhances iron absorption, iron poisoning can become an issue to people with rare iron overload disorders, such as hemochromatosis. A genetic condition that results in inadequate levels of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) can cause sufferers to develop hemolytic anemia after ingesting specific oxidizing substances, such as very large dosages of vitamin C.

    Avoid using chewable Vitamin C supplements, as these can damage tooth enamel. Brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth after taking a chewable supplement will help prevent or minimize this problem.

    VITAMIN C OVERDOSE

    Vitamin C is water soluble, with dietary excesses not absorbed, and excesses in the blood rapidly excreted in the urine. It exhibits remarkably low toxicity. The LD50 (the lethal dose that will kill 50 percent of a population) in rats is generally accepted to be 11.9 grams per kilogram of body weight when given by forced gavage (orally). The mechanism of death from such doses (1.2 percent of body weight, or 0.84 kg for a 70 kg human) is unknown, but may be more mechanical than chemical. The LD50 in humans remains unknown, given lack of any accidental or intentional poisoning death data. However, as with all substances tested in this way, the rat LD50 is taken as a guide to its toxicity in humans.

    VITAMIN C DEFICIENCY

    Vitamin C deficiency can lead to fatigue, external bleeding, irritability, and bleeding gums. Scurvy is an avitaminosis resulting from lack of vitamin C, since without this vitamin, the synthesised collagen is too unstable to perform its function. Scurvy leads to the formation of brown spots on the skin, spongy gums, and bleeding from all mucous membranes. The spots are most abundant on the thighs and legs, and a person with the ailment looks pale, feels depressed, and is partially immobilized. In advanced scurvy there are open, suppurating wounds and loss of teeth and, eventually, death. The human body can store only a certain amount of vitamin C, and so the body stores are depleted if fresh supplies are not consumed. The time frame for onset of symptoms of scurvy in unstressed adults on a completely vitamin C free diet, however, may range from one month to more than six months, depending on previous loading of vitamin C. It has been shown that smokers who have diets poor in vitamin C are at a higher risk of lung-borne diseases than those smokers who have higher concentrations of vitamin C in the blood. Nobel prize winners Linus Pauling and G. C. Willis have asserted that chronic long term low blood levels of vitamin C (chronic scurvy) is a cause of atherosclerosis.

    Notable human dietary studies of experimentally induced scurvy have been conducted on conscientious objectors during WW II in Britain, and on Iowa state prisoners in the late 1960s. These studies both found that all obvious symptoms of scurvy previously induced by an experimental scorbutic diet with extremely low vitamin C content could be completely reversed by additional vitamin C supplementation of only 10 mg a day.

    VITAMIN C INTERACTIONS

    Alcohol, analgesics, antidepressants, anticoagulants, oral contraceptives, and steroids may reduce levels of Vitamin C in the body. Smoking causes a serious depletion of Vitamin C.

    Diabetes medications such as chlorpropamide (Diabinese) and sulfa drugs may not be as effective when taken with Vitamin C. Taking high doses of Vitamin C may cause a false-negative reading in tests for blood in the stool.

    Vitamin C is absorbed by the intestines using a sodium-ion dependent-channel. It is transported through the intestine via both glucose-sensitive and glucose-insensitive mechanisms. The presence of large quantities of sugar either in the intestines or in the blood can slow absorption.

  • CITRUS BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Bioflavonoids are not true vitamins in the strictest sense, sometimes being referred to as vitamin P, and may be found in herbal plants, fruits, nuts and bark; and because they cannot be manufactured by the body, they must be supplied through the diet. The letter ''P'' represents permeability factor, and it was given to this group of nutrients because they improve capillary strength and permeability. Citrus Bioflavonoids are a class of flavonoids that includes Rutin, Hesperidin, Quercitin, Eriodictyl and Citron, and they are essential for the absorption of vitamin C, which should be taken simultaneously, so they may act synergistically for maximum benefit. Citrus fruits are well known for providing ample amounts of vitamin C, but they also provide Citrus Bioflavonoids, which are located in the white material just beneath the peel of citrus fruits and may be found in grapefruits, lemons, tangerines, limes and oranges. Other sources of bioflavonoids include apricots, nuts, peppers, buckwheat, blackberries, black currants cherries, grapes, plums, prunes and rose hips. In addition, several herbs also provide bioflavonoids, including Chervil, Elderberry, Hawthorne Berry, Horsetail and Shepherd's Purse.

  • Nutrition Basics: Hesperidin Bioflavonoid Information



  • QUERCETIN / QUERCETIN-C / ACTIVATED QUERCETIN SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Quercetin is a bioflavonoid similar to rutin that is commonly found in red apples and red onions. Combined with Vitamin C, bioflavonoids work to rebuild small blood vessels and other structural parts of the body. Quercetin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, acts as an antihistamine, and helps reduce viral activity. Human cell culture studies with quercetin have demonstrated its capability to inhibit the release of histamine from mast cells. As an antioxidant, it may help to prevent heart disease by protecting LDL cholesterol from becoming damaged, which cardiologists believe is the underlying cause of heart disease. Quercetin may also block an enzyme that leads to accumulation of sorbitol, which has been linked to nerve, eye and kidney damage in people with diabetes. Quercetin is a potent natural reverse transcriptase blocker. Though large doses may be required in humans to produce therapeutic effects, quercetin has been shown to have antiviral activity against HIV, herpes simplex, polio virus and the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). One study even showed that it was possible to overcome the polio virus by pairing vitamin C with quercetin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin, which helps prevent oxidation of water-soluble molecules that could otherwise create free radicals. It also acts as a stimulator to the immune system; through this function, along with its antioxidant properties, it may help in the prevention and treatment of infections and other diseases. It may be helpful against bacterial, viral and fungal diseases.

  • RUTIN BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Rutin is a bioflavonoid, and it provides essential support molecules for vitamin C absorption (and should, in fact, be taken at the same time to gain maximum benefit). Rutin supplementation prevents the breakdown of vitamin C in the body before it is metabolized and intensifies its beneficial immune-enhancing effects in the body. With regard to eye health, the bioflavonoid, Rutin, is said to improve capillary integrity and believed to help lower ocular pressure when used in conjunction with conventional drugs. (Bilberry extract is particularly rich in Rutin and can be beneficial in cases of diabetic retinopathy.) Rutin may be very helpful in combating cataracts, macular degeneration (the most common cause of blindness) and free radical damage to the retina. The antioxidant activity that fights free radical damage appears to play a role in the prevention of cataracts and other forms of visual impairment. Because Rutin improves capillary integrity (it works synergistically with vitamin C in this regard) by protecting and preserving the structure (permeability) and strength of those capillaries, this action is said to be of great help for capillary fragility (easy bruising and bleeding) and venous insufficiency (varicose veins and spider veins). Because Rutin strengthens capillaries, it may be helpful in reducing the symptoms of hemophilia. The bioflavonoid, Rutin, is thought to lessen symptoms associated with prolonged bleeding and help in cases of bleeding gums and hemorrhage.
