Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a vitamin your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is also vital to your body’s healing process.
An antioxidant, vitamin C might help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals might play a role in the degeneration of cells. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron.
Because your body doesn’t produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet. Vitamin C is also used to increase iron absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. The recommended daily amount of vitamin C for adult men is 90 milligrams and for adult women is 75 milligrams.
