Vitamin C: What are the benefits?

Vitamin C said to be one of the safest and most effective nutrients, also known as an ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin. The human body is unable to make Vitamin C making it an essential component of your daily diet.

Vitamin C plays an important role in the body, as it helps to protect cells, whilst keeping them healthy. The human body requires vitamin C for the development and repair of tissues in every part of the body. Furthermore Vitamin C is a key component in the manufacturing of collagen, a vital protein, which helps maintain healthy connective tissues, key for the support and structure of skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C also helps wounds to heal quicker, and repairs and preserves healthy teeth and bones.

As Vitamin C is water-soluble, it cannot be stored for long in the body and is readily lost in urine, so regular intakes are essential in your daily diet. Some foods are especially good sources of Vitamin C, including; citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes and oranges, vegetables such as broccoli, brussel sprouts and potatoes, as well as fruit such as strawberries and blackcurrants.
