Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is always ready to help your body up its antioxidant game. It protects your cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are constantly forming—when you breathe, exercise, metabolize food, and more. You’re also exposed to free radicals from the outside world (think air pollution, ultraviolet light, and cigarette smoke), so vitamin C never gets to take a break. In addition, C also plays a big role in supporting your immune system and brain and is essential in helping your body make collagen, which is used to make connective tissue and heal wounds. Eating raw fruits and veggies is an easy way to get your C, and top food sources include citrus fruits and juices, strawberries, broccoli, and tomatoes. You can also get vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid in a multivitamin or separate supplement. The good news is that a true vitamin C deficiency is rare in the U.S., but the first signs of one are fatigue, malaise, and bleeding gums.

Bulletproof Radio: Vitamin C Is Taking The Fight To The Big "C" – Dr. Ron Hunninghake
Vitamin C is taking the fight to the "Big C." Scientists around the world are beginning to rethink how to fight cancer, and are looking to Vitamin C for help. Somewhere along the line, humans lost the ability to produce Vitamin C, and some scientists see this event as the point when human bodies began to deteriorate and became disease ridden without proper supplementation of Vitamin C from external sources. As ailments like heart disease, fibromyalgia, and cancer have ravaged human bodies, pioneering doctors like Ron Hunninghake from the Riordan Institute have developed new cancer treatment protocols using elevated dosages of Vitamin C with such promising results that big pharma has taken notice.
