The Essential Benefits of Vitamin C

While doing my daily routine in the net, I happened to click an article about rheumatism and vitamin C. So I decided to read it because I wanted to know how vitamin C can help for patients with rheumatism since my mother has that kind of illness. Studies show that Vitamin C, one of the major and healthful components of orange juice and some veggies is good for arthritis and rheumatism. It helps protects against arthritis and rheumatism which can work best if you combine it with B- complex vitamins.

How does it work? Since rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis make capillaries lead blood cells into the joints, the immune system responds as if these blood cells were invading bacteria, triggering a painful inflamed in the joints. That is why vitamin C is essential for manufacturing collagen, a protein needed to form the soft tissue in bones and joints. Several studies also show that vitamin C can reduce cataracts, minimize allergies and reduce the risk of gallbladder disease.

So what are you waiting for- stock up your vitamin C now!
