Vitamin C, which can also be known as ascorbic acid, is a water soluble vitamin. This means it is not stored in the body for any great period of time, and needs to by continually replaced or replenished.
Vitamin C is the least stable of all vitamins and it is very sensitive to oxygen. This means its potency can be lost through exposure to light and air.
A primary function of Vitamin C in the body is maintaining collagen levels. Collagen is a protein necessary for the formation of connective tissue in the skin, ligaments and bones.
How can Vitamin C help us? Vitamin C plays a role in healing wounds and burns. This is because it facilitates the formation of connective tissue in the actual scar. Vitamin C also aids in forming red blood cells and prevents haemorrhaging.
In addition to these important things Vitamin C fights bacterial infections and reduces the effects on the body of some allergy producing substance. For this reason, Vitamin C is frequently used in the prevention and treatment of the common cold.
