Vitamin C is a powerful vitamin with infection-fighting properties, playing a large role in immune system function. Vitamin C is crucial for the formation of collagen, making this vitamin very important for wound repair, healthy gums, strong bones and teeth and, in the prevention of bruising.
As a powerful antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Because it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body cannot store vitamin C, making regular supplementation vital. The bodyâ€™s need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because it participates in the production of vital chemicals, such as those needed for the "fight or flight" response.
