Vitamin C

Ascorbic Acid

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble vitamin. It acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. We are exposed to free radicals in the environment from air pollution, cigarette smoke, chemicals, and ultraviolet light (UV) from the sun. Vitamin C is used by the body to make collagen, the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues. Collagen helps wounds heal. Vitamin C also enhances the absorption of Iron and helps the immune system to function properly. It is often supplemented to reduce the symptoms of the common cold.
