The Benefits of Vitamin C
Check it: Dietary intake of vitamin C lowers the risk of prostate cancer.
A 2015 review of 18 studies, with a total of 103,658 subjects, found that increasing dietary intake of vitamin C -- from whole food – lowers the risk of prostate cancer.
The authors found that vitamin C plays a role in "the chemoprevention of cancer, due to its function as a scavenger of free radicals," as well as "the role in the recycling of vitamin E and in reducing oxidative DNA damage." Humans cannot synthesize vitamin C.
We must ingest it from a dietary and/or supplementary sources. The bioavailability (getting nutrients to cells) of vitamin C from dietary sources (fruits and vegetables) is markedly higher than from supplement sources.
Elements meals are a great source of dietary vitamin C!
