How Vitamin C Can Help Arthritis and Joint Pain

By    |   Thursday, 06 Aug 2015 03:25 PM

Research suggests increased consumption of vitamin C can help with some types of arthritis and joint pain, but scientists caution that it's a balancing act, and taking too much vitamin C can also harm those suffering from certain forms of arthritis.

A British study cited by The Arthritis Foundation found that people who had low vitamin C levels were three times more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than people who consumed foods rich in vitamin C.

The National Institutes of Health recommends 75 milligrams daily for women and 90 mg daily for men.

In 2013, a pilot study from the Riordan Clinic in Wichita, Kansas, published in the Journal of Modern Research in Inflammation, said that high vitamin C doses delivered intravenously could help lesson inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis, Nutraceuticals World reported.

It noted that "reducing inflammation and oxidative stress can protect cartilage as it regenerates within the joint."

Riordan senior research scientist Dr. Nina Mikirova told Nutraceuticals World: "When administered at much higher-than-recommended dietary allowance levels, vitamin C has been suggested of having both a preventative and therapeutic role in a number of pathologies, including cancer, atherosclerosis and viral infections, so we expected that high dosages of vitamin C can be beneficial in treatment of RA.”

In a news release about the research, the Riordan Clinic said, "Based on this pilot study, it is hypothesized that IVC therapy is a useful strategy in treating RA, and that more research into this possibility is warranted."

In spite of that research, some studies have found that too much vitamin C can hurt those who have osteoarthritis of the knee, WebMD reported. That type of arthritis causes "the progressive breakdown of joint cartilage — a cushioning tissue layer that helps bone move against each other without causing friction and destruction of bone."
