What is Vitamin C used for?


Vitamin C is an antioxidant used to treat or prevent vitamin c deficiency in people who aren’t getting enough in their diets. Low vitamin c levels can result in a condition known as scurvy—which happens when there is a vitamin c deficiency. It can cause rash, muscle weakness, joint pain, tiredness, and even tooth loss.

Vitamin C naturally occurs in citrus fruits, tomatoes, potatoes, broccoli, and leafy vegetables. It’s an important vitamin, in that it helps keep teeth, bones, and cartilage healthy, as well as connective tissues, muscles and blood vessels, and protecting your body’s cells from damage. It also aids in iron absorption, which is necessary for red blood cell production.
