Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. This means that it dissolves in water and is delivered to the body’s tissues but is not well stored, so it must be taken daily through food or supplements. It is involved in the synthesis of collagen and other constituents of bone, teeth, and capillaries. It aids in wound healing, and also necessary for the function of several enzymes, and increases the absorption of iron in the gut.

  • Boosts immunity
  • A powerful antioxidant
  • May lower the risk of heart disease
  • Helps prevent iron deficiency

Works best if taken with vitamin E, and bioflavonoids in fruit and vegetables increase its effect.
