Organic Vitamin C Benefits – Can it really help with cancer?

What is vitamin c good for

What are the benefits of Vitamin C?

Good question.  Why should you take it and what is the point of taking Vitamin C and how do you know it is Organic Vitamin C.

Most people take it when they think they might be agetting a cold and they take Vitamin C drinks and supplements to boost their immune system, but there are other things this vitamin can do for you.

Vitamin C Benefits

Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is abundant in vegetables and fruits. A water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels, and skin.  Taking this for your skin is something a lot of people are aware of.   You can get creams and masks for your skin which looks amazing when you use it.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, which means your body doesn’t store it. Unlike most other mammals, humans do not have the ability to make vitamin C, which means you need to consume it via your diet.

This video explains how Vitamin C can really help your health.

One of my girlfriends who had cancer had treatments which included Vitamin C shots on a daily basis and she is now cancer free.  This is not saying it always works and it does not work just on it’s own.  There are other treatments that work with this vitamin.

Vegetables High in Vitamin C

    • Sweet peppers
    • Chili peppers
    • Brussels sprouts
    • Broccoli
    • Artichoke
    • Sweet potato
    • Tomato
    • Cauliflower
    • Kale
    • Papaya
    • Strawberries
    • Oranges
    • Kiwi
    • Grapefruit
    • Cantaloupe

Add these foods to your diet daily and you will increase your intake of this vitamin which is so essential.


Signs of Vitamin C Deficiency

Dry and splitting hair Gingivitis (inflammation of your gums) Bleeding gums
Rough, dry or scaly skin Decreased wound-healing rate Easy bruising
Nosebleeds Decreased ability to ward off infection

Anyone who smokes needs to take more Vitamin C as smoking will use up what you have stored.

Just look at someone’s skin you know who smokes and see the difference from someone who does not.

Please do not change or add anything to your routine without checking with your Health Practitioner first.


Please share this post with others and I would love your comments.

      Yes you have to supplement if you do not get your nutrition from your food. Each individual is different so you have to work out what is best for you. Vitamin C however is good for most people.

    I really enjoyed reading this information. I take my multivitamins everyday just to make sure I get everything I need. Oranges and strawberries are included in my diet because it’s delicious.

      Excellent, sometimes however even with a multivitamin there may not be enough of the one vitamin you are deficient in to make up the difference.

    Love the list of foods that provide Vitiman C. I prefer to get as much of my daily nutrients as possible through real foods.

    Good list of foods with Vitamin C. Is this ranked in order? Fruits seem to be lower on the list than vegetables and other foods. Also, is the treatment with Vitamin C directly responsible for your girlfriend’s cancer being gone. Was it the diagnosis of the attending doctor. This is actually very interesting to me.

      Not listed in any order. Yes Vitamin C had a lot to do with her recovery along with EMDR, wheat grass, meditation and a strong positive will. Diagnoses was don by a professional doctor.

    Thanks for the informative info from the interview. Dr. Mercola surely knows his stuff and it’s always interesting what he brings to the table. Vitamin C, as much as it’s stressed for its importance, seem to not be a top priority for many. Eating more of the foods you’ve listed would definitely help.

      Dr.Mercola is one of my favorites. Vitamin C is so important because we do not produce it ourselves.

    Hi Helen,

    I like your website, looks very clean and very well designed layout. Thank you for sharing this info. I knew that Vitamin C was good for you but did not know all the benefits you can get with this vitamin. The list of vegetables high in vitamin C is good to know. Thank you for sharing this information.

    I was aware that Vitamin C is important for our body and most veggies and fruits contain Vitamin C, What I did not realize is that Vitamin C can actually help to cure cancer and the gum bleeding is partly due to the lack of Vitamin C. Thanks for this eye-opening article.

    I juice my vegetable’s to make sure I’m getting all my nutrient’s for the day. It also helps make my day go smoother because I have more energy. I love Brussel sprouts!!!

      I think that is great you get a lot of vitamins doing it that way. Vitamin C however if you are sick you will need to take a lot more than what you would put in your juice unless you were putting the added liquid vitamin c as well. I love brussel sprouts also.

    I certainly know of and agree with taking Vitamin C if you feel you are getting sick or are around others that are. I will do that every time I see germs on the horizon.

    What I did not know though was that smoking can faster deplete your stores of Vitamin C. My wife is a smoker and has had some of the skin issues you listed here. I think I will have to share this with her and encourage her to do something to boost her levels.

    Thank you very much for sharing this as I learned something today.

    Vitamin C – always have a ton of it on hand. Whenever someone in the fam is feeling under the weather, I give them 8-10 capsules each day until they are out of the storm. Vitamin C is so underrated. Great Post!!

    Looking at the deficiency signs, I think I may just be lacking in Vitamin C. If I were to enjoy the full benefits of Vitamin C in vegetables, should I take them raw? If I cook them, will the Vitamin be destroyed?

    Reply
    1. Helen Vella (Post author)

      As we do not make our own Vitamin C it is probably safe to say that quite a lot of people need to be taking it. Yes some vegetables when you cook them lose the vitamins that you could benefit from if you ate the food raw.

      You can juice the vegetable’s as well.

      I totally agree, you cannot get everything the body needs from our good source and we do need to take certain supplements Vitamin C being one of them.

    Hi Helen =)

    You said; “What are the benefits of Vitamin C? Good question. Why should you take it and what is the point of taking Vitamin C.” – You make it sound so interesting in a way that draws my attention.

    We should all know the point of taking these vitamins as I feel that not enough people actually no why.

    I’ve actually found out more things about Vitamin C which I didn’t know before, so thank you =)

    Hi Helen, I wasn’t aware that vitamin C is good for your skin or can help in the treatment of cancer.

    I remember taking vitamin C tablets when I was very young, but I think that was to keep colds and flu at bay, this is a good and informative post.

    1. Helen Vella (Post author)

      Yes most people take it only when they have colds but as you can see there are a lot more benefits to Vitamin C
