Low vitamin C levels impair fat loss

by Dr. Paul Cribb Ph.D. CSCS.
AST Director of Research

Not enough vitamin C in the blood stream has been suggested to retard fat metabolism. That’s the conclusion of a recent study presented at the Experimental Biology 2006 Meeting in San Francisco last month.

Nutrition researchers from Arizona State University reported that the amount of vitamin C in the blood stream is directly related to fat oxidation - the body's ability to use fat as a fuel source - during both exercise and at rest.

The findings of this study on a group of 20 overweight men and women revealed that as the participants progressed through the four week diet, those not given vitamin C (500mg each day) showed lever levels of this vitamin in their blood each week. As vitamin C blood concentrations fell in this group so did their ability to oxidize (utilize) fat. Vitamin C appears to play an important role in fat utilization as a fuel source. However, this water soluble vitamin can’t be stored in the body, so frequent, daily does are necessary you’re attempting to lose body fat.

Interesting. But taking too much vitamin C can produce some bad results if I remember correctly.
