Description

Vitamin C, or Ascorbic Acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Most people are aware that Vitamin C naturally occurs in oranges and orange juice, however, the vitamin is also found in peppers, strawberries and blackcurrants, broccoli, and even potatoes. Its chemical formation was only discovered in the 1930s, long after its deficiency disease, scurvy, was noticed. Although scurvy was known and dreaded by all sailors who had to make a long term voyage, it wasn�t until the 1700s that the disease was linked to a nutritional deficiency.

Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is well-known for its antioxidant properties, protecting cells from oxidative stress which is caused by free radicals, but the vitamin provides many other health benefits. Firstly, the vitamin also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue by enhancing energy metabolism, aided by its ability to regenerate Vitamin E and its requirement within the nervous system. Secondly, Vitamin C increases Iron absorption, particularly non-haem Iron which is found in plant-based sources. In addition, Vitamin C helps to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise, benefiting both athletes and the average person attending a cardio class at the gym. Lastly, the vitamin contributes to the formation of normal collagen which is required for the function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth.
