Vitamin C and Bioflavanoids

Vitamin C can also be known as Ascorbate or Ascorbic Acid. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that has a number of biological functions. Although scurvy (severe vitamin C deficiency) is uncommon in Western societies, many doctors believe that most people consume less than optimal amounts. Fatigue, easy bruising, and bleeding gums are early signs of vitamin C deficiency that occur long before frank scurvy develops. Smokers have low levels of vitamin C and require a higher daily intake to maintain normal vitamin C levels. Women with pre-eclampsia have been found to have lower blood levels of vitamin C than women without the condition. Women who have lower blood levels of vitamin C have an increased risk of gallstones. People with kidney failure have an increased risk of vitamin C deficiency. However, people with kidney failure should take vitamin C only under the supervision of a doctor. The flavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments that work in conjunction with Vitamin C. Citrus flavonoids, in particular, improve the absorption of vitamin C.
