- Synthesis of steroid hormones*
Why should I take Vitamin C?
Dr. Thomas Wnorowski, BodyBio's Research Director: We take Vitamin C during seasonal attacks including flu and related infectious viruses because it aids in the production of collagen. Collagen is the ‘glue’ that holds us together and gives cells their resilience and integrity. If an invading pathogen is bounced off, it then has no access to the cytoplasm and the cell nucleus - where viruses can reproduce. A thousand milligrams of Vitamin C three times a day should suffice during the virus season. Amino acids proline and lysine (most often found in protein) will also help collagen production. At the first signs of an attack, act.
What is the recommended dose of Vitamin C Crystals?
¼ tsp supplies 1,000 mg of ascorbic acid, which is half the recognized adult tolerable upper limit. Oxidized Vitamin C, such as from ready-to-drink orange juice, is not freely absorbed across the intestinal mucosa, making supplementation a more reliable resource. Other doses may be recommended by your health care provider.
What are the side effects of Vitamin C Crystals?
Side effects of Vitamin C Crystals are dose-dependent and GI-related, including nausea and diarrhea from osmotic absorption that pulls water into the colon. In some people, Vitamin C overdoses may precipitate oxalate, urate, or cysteine kidney stones. There are no side effects at recommended doses.
Are there any interactions?
Vitamin C increases chromium uptake. It should not be taken in the presence of high-dose acerola and rosehips to avoid overdose.
