Its alias is ascorbic acid, better known as Vitamin C. The ingredient a body couldn’t synthesize but somehow couldn’t be in a condition where it is lack of. Do you know what’s worse? It is water-soluble, so again, this “smart human body” they say, will keep automatically flushing it out through pee! That’s why it must be obtained from our diet. But somehow, according to National Nutrition Survey in Taiwan, 20-30% of adults consume an insufficient amount of Vitamin C every day.
So what exactly can Vitamin C do in our body?
● Promote wound healing
● Enhance the health and immune system
● Promote the growth of connective tissue, bones, and teeth
● Promote iron absorption
● Skin nourishing to enhance glow and brightness
● Prevent free radical damage
● Promote collagen formation
Why do we need to take Vitamin C supplementation?
If you can fulfill your Vitamin C needs from your daily diet, then great! You don’t need it. But somehow, people nowadays have unbalanced diet, rarely consuming fruits and veggies, also some food processing methods can cause the loss of Vitamin C, it becomes challenging to fulfill our body Vitamin C needs only through our food, without supplementation.
Which one is better, natural or synthetic Vitamin C?
Roughly, the way of Vitamin C extraction can be divided into two, natural extraction and artificial synthesis. Now let’s get down to the concern of “stay away from anything artificial”. It’s a myth!
There is no difference in their chemical structure, and clinical research has proven that there is no significant difference between these 2 bioavailabilities either. Adding up the fact that both of these Vitamin C types, when it is consumed with other nutrients such as Vitamin E, bioflavonoids, etc, they can synergistically complement each other.
