Vitamin C


      Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient that isn’t synthesized or stored by your body; that means it must be replenished daily through a healthy diet and proper supplementation. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C in adults is 90 mg/day for men and 75/mg day for women, though many supplements supply higher levels to offer additional benefits.

      Vitamin C aids in many biological responsibilities, including immune function, your body’s natural response to minor injuries, synthesizing collagen, supporting healthy skin and blood vessel maintenance. This powerful antioxidant also neutralizes free radicals – molecules that might harm you at the cellular level.
