Why do we need Vitamin C?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is probably one of the most highly publicised but yet least understood of all of the vitamins. Vitamin C is required to help maintain and support proper growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is necessary to form collagen, an important protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
Vitamin C is an Antioxidant
Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Vitamin E and beta-carotene are two other well-known antioxidants. The body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. It is therefore important to include plenty of vitamin C-containing foods in your daily diet or as a supplement for sustaining good health.
