Vitamin C is commonly used to:
- reduce the severity and duration of colds and allergic reactions
- assist wound healing via its role in collagen production
Vitamin C is involved in hundreds of biological processes, with the most important being in the manufacture of collagen, a major protein in the body. Collagen, found in tissue, cartilage and tendons, is a structural protein and it helps to support blood vessels. Due to its role in collagen synthesis, vitamin C is necessary for wound repair, healthy gums, prevention of bruising and to protect against infection.
Vitamin C is water-soluble and only small amounts are stored in the body after it is absorbed from the intestine. It is an antioxidant in water, and therefore helps to neutralise potentially harmful reactions in the blood and the watery fluid inside and outside the body’s cells.
