From Wholefood Vitamin C & Co Factors Powder.
Adrenals help you adapt and deal with stress and the most important vitamin for functioning of the adrenals is Vitamin C. Vitamin C also makes adrenal hormones and neurotransmitters which are the chemicals needed for the functioning of the brain and the gut. As stress increases, our body’s requirements for Vitamin C also increases.
Ascorbic acid is not Vitamin C it is only a small part of the true Vitamin C molecule.
My solution to depleted Vitamin C levels, which have a profound affect on both the function of the adrenals and the kidneys, is my adrenal support powder, a whole food solution to boost levels of bio available Vitamin C in the body. My research has indicated that there is an enzyme contained within Vitamin C called tyrosinase which is a copper molecule within Vitamin C that is used by the body to make skin and hair colour, so good for vitiligo or change in hair colour.
Vitamin C and sugar molecules are very similar, the body sees both of them as the same, so sugar competes with Vitamin C to be used by the cells. In other words, if you have a diet high in carbohydrates, glucose or sugar then you are going to be depleted in Vitamin C even if you are getting it in your diet.
Vitamin C cannot be stored by the body so we have to have an additional intake of it every day.
