Why is vitamin c so helpful?

In humans, vitamin C acts to slow or prevent oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction which releases harmful free radicals that cause cell damage.

Taken in large enough doses, vitamin C can help prevent a wide range of diseases.

One particular area that has courted some controversy is the beneficial role high doses could play in the management of cancers.

In 2007, a study of 39 terminal cancer patients concluded that vitamin C is a safe and effective therapy to use in improving the quality of life.

A year later, research from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases found high doses of vitamin C reduced tumour weight and growth rate in 50 per cent of mice with ovarian, brain and pancreatic cancers.

The vitamin has also been associated with a range of benefits including lowering eye pressure in glaucoma patients, improving sperm count in infertile men, and shortening ICU (intensive care) treatment times for critically-ill surgical patients.
