What is vitamin C?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Our bodies can't make vitamin C, so we have to get it from food or a dietary supplement. 

What does vitamin C do?

  • Vitamin C Is an important antioxidant. It helps protect the cells in our body from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from air pollution, cigarette smoke, and UV light from the sun.
  • Vitamin C is a cofactor or several important enzymes. Vitamin C is a cofactor for enzymes that make collagen. Collagen is an incredibly important structural protein that acts as a building block for our bones, tendons, ligaments, skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is also necessary for wound healing. 
  • Vitamin C supports healthy immune function.
