Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid and can be found in many types of fruits (particularly citrus-based ones) and vegetables. It’s an essential vitamin that helps keep your body functioning as it should.

 

Vitamin C can’t be stored or made in the body, so a daily diet of fruit and vegetables is needed. If you’re worried that you’re not getting enough vitamin C in your daily diet, you could benefit from a vitamin C supplement.
