The Gut-Skin-Brain Connection Mini Podcast Episodes (02):The Power of Vitamin C

Vitamin C has always been a favorite of mine, both internally and externally; it's a powerhouse nutrient that you can use daily for its amazing benefits!

By giving free radicals electrons, vitamin C neutralizes them, decreasing free radical damage. This makes vitamin C a powerful antioxidant for your anti-aging regimen!

Where do free radicals come from?

Free radicals can enter the body through sun exposure, pollution, pesticides, foods, water, cigarettes, alcohol, medicine, chemo, radiation, stress, trauma, infection, and even too much exercise. They are also natural byproducts of cell metabolism. 

Vitamin C also assists with cell turnover, a natural biological process that happens when dead skin cells shed from the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) and are replaced by newer, healthier skin cells formed in the dermis (the middle layer of the skin). As cells mature, they travel to that outer epidermal layer. 

Eventually they will lose their nuclei, which means they are no longer alive or active. The cells then shed off in a thick layer that forms on the skin’s surface and can be exfoliated. Rising and taking their place are the new cells. The skin can shed its dead cells and replace them with new ones roughly every 20 to 60 days, depending on external and internal circumstances.

Let’s take a look at some of the internal and external benefits of vitamin C at a glance.
