Consuming a decent daily dose of a quality Vitamin C powder.is an effective way of providing an abundance of easily absorpable & highly useable cellular nutrient. Our body can't manufacture Vitamin C and yet it's so crucial, not only as an antioxidant (electron doner) but also as a new cell builder. Did you know that every new molecule of tissue uses up one of vitamin C? And, when combined with MSM the permeability of the cell increases?
This is good news for arthritis sufferers. It means the cells settle down because the oxidation process is effectively turned off, giving the body a damm good chance at repairing the damage, and over time replacing with healthy new tissue & muscle and cartlidge. The body wants to heal itself, just give it an abundance of essential ingredients.
Antioxidants are one of the first lines of defense that the body employs to keep free radicals in check and prevent them from causing a domino effect of damage on other cells, which is exactly what's happening within the arthritis condition.
Oxidation reactions in the body produce ‘free radicals’ which are serious cell damagers and the cause of many diseases and aging. In fact, oxidative stress has been shown to be pivotal in the onset of many diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, motor neurone disease and a number of different cancers.
These oxidation reactions are natural in the body (they happen when our cells use oxygen) and we cannot and should not try to prevent them.
We need to ensure we are consuming enough antioxidants to clean up the by-product of these reactions, the free radicals.
