Vitamin C can also be known as Ascorbate or Ascorbic Acid. We do not have the ability to make our own vitamin C within the body, so therefore we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone and Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant. Fatigue, easy bruising, and bleeding gums are early signs of vitamin C deficiency. Smokers have low levels of vitamin C and require a higher daily intake to maintain normal vitamin C levels. It is available in tablet or powder form.

Its main source in the diet is from fruit (especially citrus) and vegetables.
It is an anti-oxidant and is essential in important functions including absorption of iron.
There has been considerable research on Vitamin C and that humans need it in their diet is established.
