oranges and the benefits of vitamin c

Vitamin C and Chiropractic

Did you know that nutrition research into vitamin C has found that it has an important role in forming bone and in bone protection? Vitamin C is active throughout our body. It strengthens the capillaries and cell walls, and it is crucial for the formation of collagen. Vitamin C also helps to prevent bruising, promotes healing, and keeps ligaments, tendons and gums strong. This incredible vitamin has also been proven to minimize cold symptoms and offers protection from degenerative diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

This vitamin is not made or stored in the body therefore it must be ingested daily. If you feel you’re not consuming enough of this essential vitamin through diet then taking supplements is very important. There are many factors that go into how much vitamin C needs to be ingested by an individual such as age, weight, gender and lifestyle choices.

So where does this vitamin fit into chiropractic care? This vitamin has a protective role for bone health. It is recommended that 1,000mg of vitamin C daily can aid in preventing or assisting in the treatment of bone loss and osteoporosis.

Vitamin C deficiency is a serious problem in the elderly and is an under-diagnosed contributor to degenerative disc disease. Once this problem starts, accompanying tissue degeneration occurs as well if left untreated.  This is where vitamin C treatments become necessary for collagen synthesis. Getting on a regimented vitamin supplement program and eating lots of fresh vegetables and fruits earlier in life can help avoid this disease.

Far too often the mineral aspect of bone health is what we read about yet the organic matrix is an essential aspect of bone quality. Collagen makes up 90 percent of the organic matrix of bone. Our bones are made up of a lot more than just calcium. Getting chiropractic care regularly along with taking Vitamin C daily are good habits to get into to prevent skeletal issues later on in life.
