Vitamin C as an Antioxidant and More – Vine Vera Reviews

It’s no secret—and Vine Vera has certainly made mention of it—that vitamin C is essential for health and general well being; when ingested or otherwise absorbed into the body, it boosts immunity and benefits the cardiovascular system, eyes, and even prenatal health. When applied topically to the skin, it brightens discolorations, nourishes, and smooths wrinkles (which, incidentally, is why Vine Vera has a collection of products that feature Vitamin C as a key ingredient).

But did you know that vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant? Yes, you read that right, vitamin C, the essential vitamin, immune boosting supplement, and wrinkle-defying, sun spot-brightening powerhouse ingredient to skincare and cosmetics also happens to work alongside other powerful antioxidants like resveratrol to fend off nasty free radicals and slow aging in its tracks. In fact, vitamin C has so many health benefits—both when ingested and used in skin care products—that Vine Vera saw fit to compile a list of them for your benefit.

Essential Mineral and Antioxidant
Regular ingestion of vitamin C is essential for survival. It’s an electron donor, which makes it a potent water-soluble antioxidant. Antioxidants help prevent cell degradation and death due to free radicals, pesky little particles that contribute largely to the aging process. As an essential mineral, vitamin C is necessary for metabolism and everyday bodily function. As an antioxidant, whether ingested or applied topically, it tends to—like other antioxidants—prolong the life of individual cells, decreasing the rate of cell death, thereby slowing down the aging process and keeping you feeling young and vigorous.

In light of the fact that vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant, consider this: Vine Vera has an entire collection of products that contain ample amounts of both vitamin C and the super-powered antioxidant resveratrol.

Immune Booster
Research into the effects of vitamin C is still in progress, but so far it’s incredibly promising. Studies have shown that vitamin C contributes to an increase in overall health, and can help the body fight against heart disease, stroke, eyesight problems, and even cancer. It’s actually recommended you take a supplement to achieve about 500 mg of vitamin C daily for the maximum benefit; currently established daily values for vitamin C are based on its necessity as an essential mineral, but even higher quantities than are necessary for simple survival can be beneficial in numerous ways. Further, vitamin C is water-soluble, and this means there is less risk from taking more than the required daily value. The safe upper limit for vitamin C intake is 2,000 mg in a day.

Skin Brightener
Another great property of vitamin C? When applied topically, it brightens dark spots and other discolorations, and evens out skin tone for an overall healthy-looking glow that lasts. As such, when used in skincare products like Vine Vera’s vitamin C collection, it’s pulling double-duty as a brightener and antioxidant! Such topical applications of vitamin C products can be more targeted; while taking vitamin C supplements or getting it through your diet (such as by eating lots of citrus fruit) is hugely beneficial to your overall health, applying it topically can specifically target your skin, applying all of vitamin C’s wonderful benefits right where you want them.

    Wow. Great review. I am going to take a vitamin C right now. I had taken a break from it and now I will start up again. For me, it is awesome that it helps with dark areas on the face like Melasma. That is one stubborn condition.
