Vitamin C is an essential water soluble vitamin that cannot be manufactured by or stored in your body so needs to be replaced on a daily basis. Your daily requirement for it is higher than any other water soluble nutrient because unlike most other animals, you cannot manufacture it in your body. Vitamin C is very unstable so storing, peeling, freezing and cooking food can deplete the vitamin C content in food.

What does it do?

Helps in the growth and repair of tissue
Helps support healthy skin, bones, tendons and joints
Is involved with iron absorption
Acts as a powerful antioxidant; helps support your immune system and fight infection
Helps to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels
Is involved in fat metabolism
In nature, vitamin C occurs in a food complex which includes many bioflavonoids which assist its absorption in the body; these are also present in the food state form. Food state vitamin C has the same pH as in food so is less acidic than ascorbic acid and is therefore far more gentle on the stomach. Most vitamin C sold on the market today is the isolated molecule of ascorbic acid which is highly acidic and does not contain other food factors.
Why might you choose to take extra Vitamin C?

If your diet is low in fresh fruit and vegetables
If you are elderly with particular nutritional requirements and consuming institutional catering
If you drink alcohol and smoke regularly
If you have a demanding lifestyle
If you are wanting to maintain normal cholesterol levels
If you are taking aspirin or prescribed drugs like antibiotics
If your work involves strenuous, physical activity
