vitamin-c-hidradenitis-suppurativaHidradenitis Suppurativa is a skin disorder that causes pain physically, and emotionally to its sufferers. Studies are showing that there are things that can help, Vitamin C being one of them. In this article, we will explore the benefits of Vitamin C for this condition.

Deficiency as A Possible Cause

We live in a busy world, and sometimes that means we aren’t always able to pay attention to things that are really important, like our diets. A deficiency in Vitamin C has been linked as a possible cause of Hidradenitis Suppurativa, or in the least, something that can certainly worsen the outbreaks. Making sure you’re eating enough foods that are rich in Vitamin C is important for sufferers of this disorder. You can always take a Vitamin C supplement to ensure you’re getting a good daily dose.

Strengthen Your Immune System

As with almost all disorders, illnesses, or conditions that are attacking the body in some fashion, your immune system needs to be strong to fight off the attacks. Vitamin C boosts immunity when ingested, or taken as a supplement, on a regular basis. Hidradenitis Suppurativa is characterized by outbreaks of pus-filled lesions that grow and then rupture, releasing the pus. The lesions can be prone to infection. Vitamin C can help your body fight off the outbreaks, by giving it the immunity boost it needs.

Help Reduce Inflammation

Sufferers of Hidradenitis Suppurativa experience lumps and nodes under the skin that swell, and become inflamed. The inflammation can be uncomfortable, and sometimes quite painful. Vitamin C can act as an anti-inflammatory, by helping to reduce your skin’s inflammatory response.


Increase Your Recovery Speed

Outbreaks with Hidradenitis Suppurativa are going to happen, and sufferers are going to have to deal with them. When the lesions rupture, and move through the different life stages, they do damage to the skin, causing scarring and discomfort. The recovery process can be long, and very uncomfortable. You can help to speed up the recovery with Vitamin C. It does this by promoting the regeneration of skin cells, and causing an increased release of collagen. Vitamin C can help to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort associated with the recovery process, and also reduce some of the scarring effect.


Adding enough Vitamin C into your daily diet is an easy step to take to help move you toward less frequent outbreaks, and faster recovery for when you do experience an outbreak. If you’re suffering with Hidradenitis Suppurativa, start yourself on a daily Vitamin C regimen today, so you can get headed toward a better, more comfortable tomorrow, with less frequent Hidradenitis Suppurativa outbreaks to deal with.

Not all vitamin C supplements are created equal, though.

You’ll need to take a high-quality, high-bioavailability product. Otherwise, most of the vitamin C will simply pass through your body without being absorbed (this is the case with the vast majority of vitamin C products, and is the reason many do not get the benefits of the vitamins they take).

For this reason, liposomal vitamin C is the way to go: it’s the only route of administration that’s as absorbable as intravenous injections, and it’s much cheaper, more convenient and less invasive.

I recommend PuraTHRIVE’s Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C, which is nanoencapsulated using two cutting-edge formulation techniques, liposomal and micellar delivery.
