Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential, water-soluble vitamin which our bodies cannot naturally produce on their own.
Instead, it must be consumed through our diets. Vitamin C is found in a wide range of foods, including fruits and vegetables.
If you do not think you are getting enough vitamin C through your diet alone then it is a good idea to take an additional dietary supplement.
Vitamin C has many functions in the body.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant within the body, helping to protect the cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are formed from the food we eat and our also found in our environment. Things like air pollution, cigarette smoke and UV rays are all free radicals and can cause damage to our cells.
Vitamin C is essential for the absorption of iron from plant-based foods, which is one of the most important minerals in the body. Iron is essential for your growth and development as well as haemoglobin production.
As well as this, vitamin C helps support normal psychological function, the normal function of the immune system and the production of collagen.
It also supports energy yielding metabolism and also helps us to feel less tired and fatigued.
The NHS recommends that adults aged 19 to 64 years old need 40mg of vitamin C per day.
Because it is water-soluble, vitamin C cannot be stored in our bodies and so we must get it through our diets and additional supplements each day.
