Essential for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient for humans, necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It is a cofactor in at least eight enzymatic reactions, including several collagen synthesis reactions that, when dysfunctional, cause the most severe symptoms of scurvy.  These reactions are especially important in wound-healing and in preventing bleeding from capillaries.

Vitamin C is involved in many body functions, including the immune system, the formation of collagen, wound healing, the absorption of iron, and the maintenance of cartilage, skin, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that that can protect against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Free radicals can build up in your body and contribute to the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis.

Vitamin C is a powerful support for antiaging and prevents skin wrinkling. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined links between nutrient intakes and skin aging in 4,025 women aged 40-74. It found that higher vitamin C intakes were associated with a lower likelihood of a wrinkled appearance, dryness of the skin, and a better skin-aging appearance.

In general, the benefits of vitamin C are associated to the general wellbeing and supporting immunity to living longer. The benefits include protecting against immune system deficiencies, cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, eye disease, and prenatal health problems. Studies show that Vitamin C is significantly associated to health benefits supporting cold and flu symptoms and on preventing further complications such as pneumonia and lung infections.
