Vitamin C

Micronutrient

Role In The Human Body

Vitamin C can help your body in many ways such as: supporting immune function, providing protection from cancer and disease, helping people with any problems in the body (high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, allergies, etc.), and helping wounds heal.


Consequences of Insufficient Levels in Living Things

Vitamin C deficiency can result in scurvy although, it is rare. Scurvy can include inflamed/bleeding gums, excessive bleeding, and impaired wound healing. Vitamin C deficiency is more of a problem for people who smoke than for people who do not. Vitamin C deficiency and scurvy can be cured very easily by simply putting more Vitamin C in your body.


Where Can You Find Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is found in fresh fruits (oranges, strawberries, kiwi, grapefruit, etc.), fresh vegetables (bell peppers, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc.), and juices from fruits or vegetables.
