The Effectiveness of Vitamin C


We all know that vitamin C is one of the most popular health supplements which acts as a stimulant for the immune system of our body. Recent research has revealed that vitamin C could play a part in cancer prevention.

Food Sources

Some of the sources of vitamin c are cabbage, cauliflower, guava, kiwi, papaya and strawberries.

Who Needs Extra Vitamin C?

Although all of us need vitamin c there are others who need it more than us. Who are they?

1. Elderly Folks

As one grows older the ability to absorb vitamin c also decreases.

2. Smokers

Smoking not only harms the lungs but it also depletes vitamin C from the body.

3. Undergoing Surgery

If you are undergoing surgery you would need an increased dose of vitamin C as your body would need it to recover.

How it helps in preventing cancer?

Vitamin C neutralises the free radicals and thus reduces the chance of cancer cells from developing. Those who eat vitamin C regularly have shown to be at a lower risk level in getting cancer.
