Vitamin C

What are the health benefits?

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant (molecules that boost the immune system) that can strengthen your body’s natural defences. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals, which can contribute to health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. It is critical in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C are important for the skin as it takes care of wrinkled appearance, dryness and skin ageing.
