Vitamin C from whole foods is immeasurably more effective than the synthetic C. For example when 70mg of Vitamin C from a whole food source is ingested, it will strengthen the immunity more effectively than 700mg. of synthetic Vitamin C. Several studies indicate that only 10% of synthetic vitamin C is absorbed, the rest is excreted.
Bioflavonoids are vital in their ability to increase the strength of the capillaries (blood vessels) and to regulate their permeability. They assist vitamin C in keeping collagen, the intercellular "cement" in healthy condition; are essential for the proper absorption and use of vitamin C; prevents vitamin C from being destroyed in the body by oxidation; beneficial in hypertension; help hemorrhages and ruptures in the capillaries and connective tissues and build a protective barrier against infections. Bioflavonoids enhance the action of vitamin C and for this reason, they should be taken together. Bioflavonoids may also be active in preserving the structures of capillaries, have an antibacterial effect and promote circulation. They may be indicated in the production of bile, lowering blood cholesterol levels and in the prevention and treatment of cataracts. Bioflavonoids enhance the absorption of vitamin C, and prolong the effectiveness of it as well. These are super active substances and can add a great deal to your nutritional needs in health and disease.
This nutrient acts together with vitamin C to help maintain the thin walls of the capillaries, therefore preventing bleeding or bruising. Bioflavonoids have been linked to having an antibacterial effect, stimulating bile production, promoting circulation and even assisting with fighting allergies, asthma etc.

Vitamin C and Oral Health
Vitamin C's role in maintaining the health of teeth and gingivae remains unchallenged. Now clinical evidence indicates that vitamin C functions in improving host defense mechanisms and is thereby implicated in preserving periodontal health.
Vitamin C For Thyroid and Sex Hormones
Vitamin C helps to absorb thyroid hormone. It is the only over-the-counter nutraceutical treatment for low progesterone proven to be effective. At doses of 750 mg/day, vitamin C has been shown to raise progesterone in women with low progesterone.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that serves to maintain the integrity of bone, connective tissue, and teeth. A prolonged deficiency of vitamin C results in scurvy, a chronic disorder characterized by various dental symptoms including gingivitis, periodontal inflammation, abnormal dentin formation, and tooth loss. The role of vitamin C supplementation in preventive dental health maintenance and in speeding the recovery from dental surgery has recently emerged as the subject of increasing scientific investigation.
Several direct and catalytic biodynamic actions of supplementary Vitamin C in the body has been identified as promoting oral health and the rapid recuperation from dental diseases and surgical procedures. Vitamin C has been demonstrated as effective in stimulating the immune system and subsequently reducing the potential for post-surgical infection. Vitamin C can also enhance wound repair following dental extractions through the strengthening of socket blood clots, as well as by increasing the body’s construction of scar tissue and the synthesis and deposition of collagen. Inadequate vitamin C can promote bleeding gums that can develop into gingivitis if left untreated.
Ascorbic acid is not vitamin C.
Vitamins cannot be isolated from their complexes and still perform their specific life functions within the cells. When isolated into artificial commercial forms, like ascorbic acid, these purified synthetics act as drugs in the body. They are no longer vitamins, and to call them such is inaccurate. Most sources equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. They’re not. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components. Ascorbic acid is described merely as the “antioxidant wrapper” portion of vitamin C; ascorbic acid protects the functional parts of the vitamin from rapid oxidation or breakdown. For decades, over 90% of ascorbic acid in this country was manufactured at a facility in Nutley, New Jersey, owned by Hoffman-LaRoche, one of the world’s biggest drug manufacturers. Here ascorbic acid is made from a process involving cornstarch and volatile acids. The word synthetic means two things, manmade and occurs nowhere in nature.
The ascorbic acid you buy at the grocery store every few weeks, thinking you are buying Vitamin C, is just a chemical copy of naturally occurring ascorbic acid, which itself is still only a fraction of the actual Vitamin C. Real vitamin C is part of something living, and as such, can impart life.
The synthetic, fractionated chemical ascorbic acid never grew in the ground, never saw the light of day, never was alive or part of anything alive. It’s a laboratory chemical, a cornstarch derivative, a sulfuric acid by-product. Synthetic vitamins have toxic effects at mega-doses and actually can increase the white blood cell count. Whole food vitamins, by contrast, are not toxic since the vitamin is completed in its integral working form, and requires nothing from the body, and triggers no immune response.Scurvy is a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. Scurvy is characterized by bleeding gums, slow wound healing, softening bones, loose teeth, ulcerations of the mouth and digestive tract, general weight loss and fatigue. From 1650 to 1850 half of all seamen on transoceanic voyages died of scurvy.Whole food vitamin C as found in potatoes, onions, and some fruits is able to quickly cure any case of scurvy. By contrast, the fractionated chemical ascorbic acid has been shown to be insufficient in resolving a scurvy condition, simply because it does not act as a nutrient.
Ascorbic acid simply cannot confer vitamin activity, as taught by the discoverer of vitamin C himself, another Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Georgi. Ascorbic acid is just the antioxidant outer shell – the protector of all these other synergists so that they will be able to perform their individual functions. Vitamins are living complexes which contribute to other higher living complexes – like cell repair, collagen manufacture, and maintenance of blood circulation. Ascorbic acid is not a living complex. It is a copy of a part of a living complex known as vitamin C. Whole food sources of Vitamin C require taking less than it's synthetic Ascorbic Acid counterpart.
