Not really into drinking your daily dose of OJ (orange juice) in the morning or eating veggies for that matter? Well, try. Recent studies show that Vitamin C, one of the major, and healthful components of orange  juice and some veggies is good for—drum rolls please—arthritis and rheumatism.

Yup, vitamin C can protect you against arthritis and rheumatism, although it seems to work best in combination with B-complex vitamins.

How does it work? Since rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis make capillaries leak blood cells into joints, the immune system responds as if these blood cells were invading bacteria, triggering a painful inflammatory response. Moreover, vitamin C is also essential for the manufacture of collagen, a protein needed to form the soft tissue in bones and joints.

A study in the French medical journal Revue Du Rhumatisme by Jean Leone M.D. and the Robert Debré Teaching Hospital in Reims, describes how two patients with rheumatism were actually suffering from scurvy (rheumatism was a symptom of scurvy). Scurvy is a severe vitamin C deficiency disease characterized by the bleeding of gums and other abnormal bleeding (the bleeding is caused by weak capillary walls). Leone’s patients recovered after he gave them 1,000mg of Vitamin C daily for 10 days.

Several studies also seem to show how good vitamin C vis-avis the reduction of cataracts (clouding of the eye); minimizing allergies; and reducing the risk of gallbladder disease.

Fortunately, vitamin C is readily available in tablet form in health food stores nationwide. So stock up on vitamin C and feel its benefit.
