What Does the Science Say?

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for the human body and boasts and extensive base of scientific research. Being a vitamin, it cannot be created naturally in the human body and is usually ingested through foods (in particular fruits & vegetables) or through supplementation.

Vitamin C is also a very potent antioxidant [1,2] and acts as a cofactor in many biosynthetic and gene regulatory pathways [3].

Research suggests that vitamin C, amongst many things, can:

  • Support the immune system [1,2,4,5]
  • Contribute to anti-inflammatory processes [2,4,5]
  • Help against common cold, lung infections and flu symptoms [6, 7, 8]
  • Inhibit growth of bacteria such as S. aureus and streptococci as well as multi-drug resistant bacteria, including H. pylori [2,9]
  • Help protect against & combat viral infections (such as Epstein-Barr, SARS & shingles) [10,11,12]; and
  • Support in the treatment of certain cancers [13,14]

As mentioned above, Ascorbyl palmitate is a more bioavailable form of vitamin C [15].

It is worth noting that vitamin C can also enhance the bioavailability of other nutrients, such as vitamin E [16].

Vitamin C is very safe to use [3,4,9,11,14,17]. Whilst the current RDA is 75mg – 90mg/day for adult females & males, daily supplementation can normally be around 2g/day and upwards [17]. The therapeutic amount will depend on overall health, levels of oxidative stress and the presence of infections. Human trials have shown that patients with pneumonia can tolerate up to 100g/day of vitamin C without developing any side effects [9].

It should be noted that quantities of 10g/day and upwards are usually administrated intravenously rather than through oral supplementation.
