Why are Vitamin C Critical to our Health?
Vitamins are essential to life. Since most vitamins and minerals cannot be manufactured in the body, they must be supplied by your diet. They contribute to good health by regulating the metabolism and assisting the biochemical process that releases energy from digested foods. Antioxidants are a group of vitamins which help to protect the body from the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are agents that cause damage to cells, thus impairing the immune system and leading to infections and various degenerative diseases.
A known and world recognized antioxidant is vitamin C. This antioxidant is considered the best protection against aging and other diseases.

Can you Consume Too Much Vitamin C?
As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, the body rids itself of excessive vitamin C. It is non-toxic, even when taken in large amounts. However, when a very excessive amount is taken, it may cause diarrhea, which is believed to bring a cleansing effect to the body.
Do you know that an orange (freshly plucked from a tree) provides you with only 60mg of Vitamin C? In order to achieve the adult daily minimum requirement of one gram (1000mg) of Vitamin C, you would have to eat approximately 18 oranges (picked fresh from a tree). Thus, it is imperative to take Vitamin C supplements.
