Clinical Applications Research: Immune System: Given the many varied functions of vitamin C in the body, it is no surprise that it is essential to the immune system function. Vitamin C is utilized to help clear toxic metals and substances from the body in order to detoxify and achieve optimal health. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that consumption of vitamin C has been inversely related to incidences dysfunction in several epidemiological studies (Kromhout D. Essential micronutrients... Am J Clin Nutr 1987; 45:1361-7). According to a report in Allergy and Imm. (Feb. 1993), vitamin C has a "special influence” on supporting the immune response and warding off foreign invaders. Several studies of groups taking vitamin C show that it reduces the longevity and severity of colds (Brit. J. Nutr. 67:3-16). One group, taking 600 mg supplements, experienced upper respiratory tract support during supplementation (Amer. J. Clin. Nutr. 57:170-74). Extra addition of vitamin C seems to support the immune system by increasing cellular immune functions and stimulating neutrophils (immune-fighting cells). Patients receiving 1 gram of vitamin C daily had improved neutrophil activity, resulting in a dramatic reduction of foreign attacks on the immune system, allowing the system to function in homeostasis (Anderson, R. Int J Vitam Nutr Res. Suppl. 23:23-34, 1982; Patrone, R, Dallegri, F, Bonvivi, E, et al. Acta Vitaminol Enzymol. 4:163-68, 1982). Vitamin C treated groups did not report feeling as bad while under attack as those who were not supplemented. Many people believe that vitamin C contributes to a feeling of well-being.

Healthy Aging: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant which guards against the oxidant stress involved in lung dysfunction (Hatch GE Am J of Clin Nutr 1995; 61(suppl): p. 628S). A UCLA researcher, James Enstrom, says that 300-mg of vitamin C a day (half from supplements) will support healthy aging moreso than those getting only 25 mg. (Fort Collins Coloradoan USA Weekend, Sept 30, 1994 p. 10).

Heart Health: The presence of imbalances in lipid levels, vascular integrity, and heart homeostasis is more frequent in humans with a low intake of vitamin C. Optimum intake of vitamin C suggested by some researchers ... “probably exceeds tenfold the doses officially recommended and is in the range of some hundred milligrams of vitamin C per day" (Miquel & Quintanilha The CRC Handbook of Free Radicals and Antioxidants in Biomedicine 1989; CRC Press, Boca Raton, Fla. p. 194). Studies show that administration of gram doses of vitamin C provide support for circulating triglyceride levels (Sokoloff, B, Hori, M, Saelhof, CC et al. J Am Geriatr Soc. 14:1239-60, 1966; Ginter, E, N Engl J Med. 294:559-60, 1976. Gooly, KL, Diamond, LH. Ann Intern Med. 93:511, 1980). Vitamin C's antioxidant function guards against the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol (the bad cholesterol), which can be unhealthy when oxidized levels are raised. One puff on a cigarette can deplete the plasma vitamin C content by as much as 50%. This is why the RDA for vitamin C intake for smokers is six times that for non-smokers (Efstratopoulos AD & Voyaki SM J of Hypertension 1993 11(suppl 5): S112-113).
Contraindications: High dosages of vitamin C (>1000 mg.) should not be taken by gout patients or by kidney stone formers. Vitamin C is contraindicated in iron overload disease.
