Vitamin C

Foods with Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is not naturally produced by the body. Water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body and regular intake through food or supplementation is essential. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and is required for collagen synthesis.* 

Fruits and vegetables are good dietary sources of vitamin C. An abundant amount of vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits, tomatoes, guava, broccoli, and strawberries. A deficiency can occur in people with poor diets that don’t contain many fruits or vegetables.

Symptoms of Vitamin C deficiency

One of the main roles of vitamin C is as an antioxidant. Antioxidants fight against oxidative stress, which can lead to serious diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis.* (1)

Vitamin C may also play a vital role in strengthening the immune system.* (2) Immune cells contain vitamin C that may be rapidly depleted during an infection. 

Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis (3). Collagen is the main protein in connective tissues and a vitamin C deficiency can affect the skin, joints, tendons, bones, and ligaments. 

Vitamin C may also improve iron absorption, lower blood pressure, and help in fighting common infections.* (4, 5, 6)
