Research in brief
Vitamin C is essential for the physical and mental development of children. It is vital in the formation of collagen, the basis of connective tissues including ligaments, tendons, cartilage, skin, vertebral discs, joints, blood vessel walls, and bones (Iqbal et al., 2004). Because of its role in collagen production, vitamin C speeds the healing of cuts and scrapes, and increases resistance to infection (Schor, 2004).
Vitamin C has been the focus of numerous research studies, examining its role in everything from immune function and cellular health to cancer prevention. Research shows that 80–90% of vitamin C is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and is usually used within two hours. It is advisable to take smaller doses frequently throughout the day, as the body can reach a saturation point. Stress, including chemical exposures, illness, and antibiotics, causes the body to use vitamin C more rapidly, thus increasing the need for supplementation (Iqbal et al., 2004).
