Cells in Good Cheer With Vitamin C

Vitamin C has long been known to give a boost to the body’s immunity especially in fighting common cold, and in ensuring good health//. Now, a Christchurch researcher has delved into the scientific reasons behind the blessing of Vitamin C, demonstrating that apart from maintaining the body’s cells, Vitamin C may also help fight cancer.

Margaret Vissers from the Free Radical Research Group, along with a team from the Angiogenesis Research Group at the Christchurch School of Medicine and Health Sciences, showed that Vitamin C has an important part to play in all healthy cells. Infact it impacts cell activity positively.

Dr Vissers' work, sponsored by the Health Research Council, has demonstrated that key enzymes in the cell require Vitamin C to kick start; low levels of the vitamin means that enzymes may not be able to do their work. The enzymes influence cell growth, death and the response to stress.

Dr Vissers said, "This also means that a lack of vitamin C increases tumor growth and prevents effective treatment. It follows that restoring vitamin C to normal levels means less tumor growth and more successful chemotherapy."
