Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid and is a water-soluble, antioxidant vitamin that plays a role in more than 300 bodily functions. It is essential to help support health and wellness and requires daily replenishment. Unfortunately, human beings unlike other animals cannot manufacture vitamin C. Nor can they store vitamin C to any appreciable amount. Instead, the kidneys, acting as regulators, excrete vitamin C causing the need for regular replenishment. In addition, vitamin C is destroyed during food preparation. Vitamin C is essential in helping to maintain collagen, a protein necessary for forming skin, ligaments, bones, and teeth and for helping to maintain the strength of blood vessel walls. High levels of vitamin C are also essential for the metabolism of white blood cells, which are critical components of the immune system. In addition, vitamin C plays and important role in the absorption of iron, which is necessary for the formation of red blood cells and in the utilizationi of folic acid, one of the B-complex vitamins.
