VITAMIN C BENEFITS

Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in a wide range of fruits and vegetables, including citrus fruits, strawberries and broccoli. 

Vitamin C plays a vital role in many bodily functions. It is known to support the immune system, help reduce fatigue, and protect cells against oxidative stress (1,2,3). It also contributes to normal metabolism and psychological function, and supports normal collagen formation to help keep skin, bones, cartilage and teeth in good condition (4,5,6,7,8,9).
