Let's talk about the importance of vitamin c and something called a subclinical vitamin c deficiency .

Now you may have heard the term scurvy before , which is a very serious vitamin c deficiency .

Another term for that is called classical vitamin c deficiency , but subclinical is that you have some vitamin c , but you don't have the full amount .

Now what does vitamin c do ?

Well , mainly it works as an antioxidant .

Okay ?

Protecting against , free radical damage .

It has a real big important purpose in collagen growth and repair .

I'm talking about connective tissue , ligaments , tendons , fascia , cartilage , all the things related to your joints .

It's also necessary to make noradrenaline .

And when you're low in noradrenaline , you're just not awake .

You're tired all the time .

It's also necessary in the function of Carnitine , which has to do with delivering fat to the mitochondria , the furnace to burn fat .

So fat oxidation .

So if you're low in Vitamin C you're not gonna get the full fat oxidation to make energy .

Also , your white blood cells , part of the immune system , are saturated with vitamin c .

So if you don't have enough vitamin C , your immune system cannot work .

When you have a very severe deficiency , as in scurvy , you have wounds that won't heal .

You'll get gingivitis , inflammation of the gums .

You'll get perifollicular hemorrhage .

Now what is that ?

That is the little red dots on the follicles on your skin .

It could be in your butt .

It could be certain places in your body .

That's about MSC Deficiency .

Fatigue , red purple blotches , similar to spider veins but you sometimes you see them on the lower leg .

You'll see them very commonly with diabetics .

And there's a lot of other symptoms as well .

Now how do you get vitamin c ?

These are the foods that have a lot of vitamin c .

Papaya , which I don't recommend .

Kiwi , which I don't recommend , bell pepper , which I do recommend , leafy greens , a lot of other vegetables are loaded with vitamin C , berries , cruciferous vegetables .

And in addition to this , a lot of times people take a supplement .

Just make sure that your supplement is not synthetic .

Make sure it's food based .

This is a really good source of vitamin c , acerola cherry , which is very different than the regular cherries that you would eat , but this is loaded with vitamin C .

So in addition to getting your vitamin C from food , there's things that will block or inhibit vitamin c absorption .

Smoking will inhibit vitamin c in your body .

If you're pregnant , the need for vitamin c goes way up .

As you get older and you age , your vitamin c goes down , so you need more vitamin c for repair .

Why ?

Because it's an antioxidant .

Also , overtraining with exercise can inhibit your vitamin c .

And this is interesting too .

When you eat sugar , you compete with vitamin c .

So you will not be able to absorb vitamin C if you're consuming sugar , and if you're diabetic and you have high levels of sugar .

That's gonna block your ability to absorb vitamin c .
