What is Vitamin C With Rosehip?

Vitamin C is a derivative of fruits and vegetables. It is found in very high concentrate in citrusy fruits. It may also be produced in medical labs.

Vitamin C is very commonly used to help with both preventing and eliminating the common cold. Various types of infections may also be prevented or treated through vitamin C supplementation, such as gum disease, bronchitis, HIV, stomach ulcers, and any type of skin infection – acne, furunculosis, etc. Bladder and prostate infections may also be treated or prevented through vitamin C supplementation.

Vitamin C supplementation is also used to prevent cataracts, gallbladder disease, dental cavities (cariers), Lyme disease, constipation, hay fever, heat stroke, bronchitis, asthma, diabetes, infertility, cystic fibrosis, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), collagen disorders, autism, arthritis, bursitis, pain in the back, swelling of discs in the back, osteoporosis, and cancer, and is also used to treat glaucoma. 

How does it work?

For the human body to develop normally and for various bodily parts to function properly, it is essential that vitamin C levels remain constant. Vitamin C is also very important for its roles in the formation of collagen, reparation of tissues, and promoting healthy functioning of the immune system. Further, vitamin C plays a factor in the body’s response to decreased oxidation, metabolizing of iron, folic acid, and tyrosine, synthesis of lipid proteins, infection prevention, and cellular respiration.

Used To Treat

Effective for:

  • Treatment and prevention of vitamin C deficiency, including a condition called “scurvy.”

Likely effective for:

  • Improving the way the body absorbs iron.
  • Treating a disease called tyrosinemia in newborns when given as an injection.

Possibly effective for:

  • Wrinkled skin. Skin creams containing vitamin C or vitamin C in combination with acetyl tyrosine, zinc sulfate, sodium hyaluronate, and bioflavonoids (Cellex-C High Potency Serum) seem to improve wrinkles in facial skin aged by sun exposure.
  • Reducing the risk of certain cancers of the mouth and breast. This only works when fresh fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C are eaten, not with vitamin C supplements.
  • Treating the common cold. There is a lot of controversy about the effectiveness of vitamin C for treating the common cold. However, the majority of evidence shows that taking high doses of vitamin C might shorten the course of the cold by 1 to 1.5 days in some patients. But it is not effective for preventing the common cold.
  • Lowering high blood pressure. Taking vitamin C along with conventional high blood pressure medications appears to decrease systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by a small amount, but does not seem to decrease diastolic pressure (the bottom number). Taking vitamin C supplements alone, though, doesn’t seem to affect blood pressure.
  • Preventing sunburn. Taking vitamin C along with vitamin E seems to prevent sunburn. But taking vitamin C alone doesn’t prevent sunburn.
  • Reducing the risk of gallbladder disease. There is some evidence that taking vitamin C might help to prevent gallbladder disease in women. But vitamin C doesn’t seem to have this effect in men.
  • Slowing the worsening of osteoarthritis. Obtaining vitamin C from dietary sources seems to prevent cartilage loss and worsening of symptoms in people with osteoarthritis.
  • Treating an eye disease called AMD (age-related macular degeneration) when used with other medicines. Taking vitamin C in combination with zinc, vitamin E, and beta-carotene daily seems to help prevent vision loss or slow worsening of AMD in patients with advanced AMD. There isn't enough evidence to know if this combination helps people with less advanced macular disease or prevents AMD. Using vitamin C with other antioxidants, but without zinc, doesn't seem to have any effect on AMD.
  • Decreasing protein in the urine of people with type 2 diabetes (albuminuria). This might help to lower the risk of developing serious kidney disease.
  • Redness (erythema) after cosmetic skin procedures. There is some evidence that a particular vitamin C skin cream can decrease the amount of redness and the time it lasts following laser resurfacing for scar and wrinkle removal.
  • Decreasing lung infections caused by heavy exercise. Using vitamin C in amounts of 600 mg to 1 gram per day before heavy physical exercise, such as a marathon, might prevent upper respiratory infections that sometimes follow heavy exercise.
  • Treating ulcers in the stomach caused by bacteria called H. pylori. Taking vitamin C seems to decrease some of the side effects caused by treatment. After H. pylori bacteria are killed, vitamin C appears to decrease the occurrence of precancerous changes in stomach tissue.
  • Helping medicines used for chest pain, to work longer.
  • Reducing the risk in women of a circulatory system disorder called peripheral arterial disease.
  • Preventing “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis).
  • Preventing kidney problems related to contrast media used during a diagnostic test called angiography.
  • Reducing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission by mothers to their newborns when taken with vitamins B and E.
  • Reducing complications after a broken wrist called complex regional pain syndrome, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
  • Reducing lead in the blood by eating foods high in vitamin C.
  • Reducing complications of a high-risk pregnancy (pre-eclampsia).

Key benefits

Daily consumption of vitamin C in sufficient amounts can work to improve functioning and health of the immune system and to protect the body from various types of infections. It is also considered to be one of the stronger antioxidants when factored into collagen synthesis, which is a vital process to ensure that the body has strong blood vessels and muscles.

Sufficient vitamin C intake can effectively eliminate the risk of scurvy disease, which occurs as a result of an insufficiency of vitamin C. Vitamin C has also been known for preventing heart disease, stroke, hypertension, asthma, cataracts, diabetes, and works to improve functioning of the immune system and reparation of wounds. Vitamin C is very important for heart disease prevention and treatment as it is necessary to guard the blood vessels from becoming damaged. It is also very important for preventing hypertension as it assists in decreasing blood pressure levels. It helps with diabetes as it aids in the insulin and glucose processes. It is also effective with repairing wounds due to the fact that it helps with connective tissue growth. Aside from these, vitamin C is also known to heal lead toxicity as it can effectively lower the concentration of lead in the bloodstream.

Possible side effects

While vitamin C is considered as safe while orally administered and with the recommended dosage, and when topically applied, vitamin C may still cause certain side effects. This includes heartburn, nausea, headache, stomach pain, and more. The likelihood of developing side effects through vitamin C supplementation will increase as the dosage amount increases. Anything in excess of 2,000mg in a single day is deemed as potentially unsafe and could result in a wide range of side effects. Some of the more serious examples include severe diarrhea and kidney stones. Further, any patient that already has had kidney stones should avoid intake of more than 1,000mg in a single day to prevent an increased chance of the kidney stones coming back.

    Safety concerns

    • Pregnant or nursing: vitamin C is considered to be most likely safe if you are pregnant or nursing if taken in supplement form at the 120mg dosage each day. An excess of vitamin C on a regular basis while pregnant could lead to the infant having certain complications. As it passes through breast milk, excessive amounts could still cause issues to the baby while nursing.
    • Angioplasty: you should not supplement with vitamin C or any other type of antioxidant prior to and right after angioplasty unless recommended by your physician or a medical care professional as these vitamins and antioxidants are claimed to cause interference with the healing process.
    • Cancer: cancerous cells are known to have vitamin C in very high amounts. Until conclusive studies have been completed, it is recommended that you only take vitamin C in higher dosage amounts if recommended by your oncologist.
    • Diabetes: it is possible that vitamin C supplementation will increase blood sugar levels. Patients suffering from diabetes, and especially women that are older should avoid taking vitamin C in any amount exceeding 300mg in a single day as this could heighten the chance of heart disease caused death. Avoid vitamin C supplementation in amounts exceeding what would be found in a typical multivitamin supplement.
    • Blood-iron diseases: diseases such as hemochromatosis and thalassemia may be aggravated by vitamin C supplementation as the vitamin C can heighten absorption of iron, which is a problem for patients with such conditions. If you suffer from a blood-iron disease, simply avoid taking vitamin C in high amounts.
    • Kidney stones: whether you have them now or had them before, taking vitamin C in high amounts may heighten the risk of recurrence. Avoid vitamin C supplementation in amounts exceeding what would be found in a typical multivitamin supplement.
    • Metabolic deficiency: vitamin C taken in high amounts may lead to broken red blood cells for patients that suffer from metabolic deficiency, or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. Make sure to avoid taking high amounts of vitamin C if you suffer from this condition.
    • Sickle cell disease: it is possible that vitamin C supplementation will worsen this disease. Make sure to avoid taking high amounts of vitamin C if you suffer from this disease.

    Things to note

    • Take ascorbic acid once a day (as prescribed by the physician)
    • Pregnant women should get medical advice before taking any supplements.
