When your immune system is under attack it needs to quickly produce new immune cells. It struggles to do this in the presence of sugar. Therefore it seems counter productive to add sugar to a vitamin C product that is marketed to boost the immune system.
Glucose and ascorbic acid are constantly competing for insulin transport. Sugar decreases the amount of ascorbic acid that enters cells and thus has the ability to weaken a healthy immune response.
If you are now wondering why many vitamin C manufacturers add sugar or a form of sugar to their vitamin C drink mixes or chewable tablets, you are definitely not alone. While we don't like to bash manufacturers, we urge you to be a careful label reader before potentially wasting your hard earned dollars.
More concerning for diabetics, is that the the sugar laden vitamin C supplements on the market can not be consumed by those that are diabetic, a segment of the population that desperately needs the support of a diet rich in vitamin C which often requires serious vitamin C supplementation. As far as artificial sweeteners...do we really need to go there?
