Vitamin C is an essential vitamin which can be found in many fruits and vegetables, such as fresh oranges, strawberries, broccoli, kale, red and green peppers, blackcurrants, potatoes and many more. It is a water soluble vitamin which our body does not produce naturally. Often we need extra supplementation due to diets of processed and convenience foods or a boost to our natural intake of fresh food.
It has many proven health benefits contributing to the normal functioning of the immune system and nervous system. The immune system protects our bodies and is our natural defence against infections, viruses, the effects of stress and many illnesses.
Vitamin C enhances iron absorption; iron is needed in the normal production of red blood cells and to prevent iron deficiency anaemia.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means that it helps to prevent the cell damage caused by oxidative stress from environmental factors, including pollutants and having a poor diet. Without adequate amounts of vitamin C we would not be able to form or store the protein collagen which helps to keep our skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage stayhealthy.
Overall, Vitamin C is essential for our health, being needed for healthy immune function, the nervous system, bone structure, iron absorption and healthy connective tissues.
