People have been taking Vitamin C supplements for years. When a cold strikes, Vitamin C is usually the first form of ammunition individuals turn to. However, what most people don't know is, the supplements they are taking to rid themselves of a simple cold may be deadly!
If you look on the label of any Vitamin C product on the market today, you will most likely see ascorbic acid as one of the main ingredients. Contrary to what most health and supplement companies want you to believe, ascorbic acid is not vitamin C. Rather, it is only a small fraction of the factors needed to create a whole vitamin C formula. Without the other necessary ingredients, vitamin C is incomplete and forces the body to use its own reserves to complete the vitamin C complex. This actually depletes vitamin C from the body.
Numerous research studies have shown the damaging effects that these synthetic vitamin C supplements have on the body. In one study, cited in a Los Angeles Times article, the research showed that consuming vitamin C supplements in the form of ascorbic acid may actually lead to heart disease. What the article failed to point out, however, is that true Vitamin C supplements are not harmful to your health. On the contrary, in its whole food form, vitamin C is very beneficial as an antioxidant, assists in collagen formation, boosts the immune system, and is necessary in the synthesis of stress hormones.
