  • Slow down aging by the help of Vitamin C

    Vitamin C on a basic level is a chemical that helps in slowing down the process of aging and especially any disease that is related to the factor of the process of aging. This vitamin is a water soluble vitamin and therefore regardless of how much it is consumed, at the end of the day, it will flushed out of the system and hence needs to be replenished gain and again. Due to this property of vitamin C, there is no maximum amount of this compound that needs to be taken. There is no concept of over dose, or toxicity in this compound.

    Vitamin C is an antioxidant and helps in getting rid of any free radicals (free electrons that damage the cells and hence brings about aging) that are present in the body due to various metabolic processes. One of its most important functions is strengthening of or repairing the collagen fibers present in the skin. These fibers are affected over time, and hence cause wrinkles, but with daily usage of vitamin C this process can slow down and give a skin that is less prone to age or stress related wrinkles or visible changes. Moreover, vitamin C also helps in any joints related disease that occurs due to age by maintaining the collagen fibers that weaken over time. The same concept applies to blood vessels which majorly consists of collagen fibers and hence when strengthened are able to withstand high blood pressures.

    Vitamin c is very important for those who suffer from anemia. Women and especially those who are pregnant need to include larger amounts of this nutrient in order to reduce the risk of anemia as due to the presence of vitamin c increases the absorption and activation of iron and various other compounds related to it.

    All in all vitamin c is a nutrient that has benefits that can help in maintaining a healthy and normal life.
