Vitamin C is definitely best known for its ability to strengthen the immune system. However, Vitamin C also has many other important benefits for our health. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals responsible for skin aging and dryness. According to the latest scientific research, Vitamin C leads to more effective skin regeneration and protects the skin from DNA damage. Vitamin C detoxifies our bodies and aids in the healing of all of our cells. Unfortunately, most people do not get enough of Vitamin C to reap all the wonderful properties it has to offer.
Why Should You Make Your Own Homemade Vitamin C?
First of all, most store bought Vitamin C supplements are genetically modified. Manufacturers use genetically modified corn as one of the ingredients. Most commercial vitamin C supplements do not contain natural vitamin C. It’s often made from ascorbic acid which is a synthetic chemical derived from glucose. Ascorbic acid has been proven to destroy good bacteria in the gut and suppress the immune system.
