As our population is aging, fast food becoming mainstream, and a concern over eye and neurological health, we are seeing a demand for more natural therapies to counter our rising costs of healthcare. More information is coming out these days on the many benefits of Vitamin C. Research has indicated that Vitamin C is important for eye health and the prevention of cataracts. Now it is showing the anti-aging effect it has on the brain. According to the findings published in the Journal of Neuroscience, Vitamin C is needed for the correct functioning of retinal cells in the eyes. Because the retina is an important part of the central nervous system it is suggested that Vitamin C likely plays an important role in the brain that was not noticed before. The Semiahmoo Wellness Center in South Surrey has been using Vitamin C therapy since 1989.
