Vitamin C is essential for the production of proteins, collagen and elastin, which strengthen arteries, bones, teeth, cartilage, and other tissues. It helps the body absorb iron and helps the body deal with stress. Unlike most animals, human beings are unable to manufacture their own Vitamin C. Animals that make their own Vitamin C are able to increase production in response to stress, infection, and exposure to toxins. Diet alone may not provide adequate amounts of Vitamin C , especially in times of stress or ailment.
A study¹ conducted by the NYS Institute for Basic Research in Developmental Disabilities has demonstrated High levels of oxidative stress associated with autism. Vitamin C is highly effective in promoting health and raising glutathione levels. Bioflavonoids such as Quercetin work together synergistically with Vitamin C. Bioflavonoids greatly enhance Vitamin C’s bioavailability and effectiveness. Both Quercetin and Vitamin C help protect the brain, tissues, and genetic material from oxidative damage due to exposure to toxins. Increased plasma vitamin C has been correlated with lowered blood lead levels, although the mechanism for this is not well understood.
Vitamin C also helps the body make neurepinephrine, an important neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters affect mood, behavior, and brain function. In addition, Vitamin C is used in the synthesis of Carnitine, which is essential for transporting fat into the mitochondria, where it is converted to energy. Vitamin C also affects the glutaminergic system, used for signaling in the brain, and the brain’s response to the mood and stress hormone Dopamine.
