WHY DO WE NEED VITAMIN C?
Your body needs vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to produce blood vessels, cartilage, muscle, and collagen in bones. The healing process in your body depends on vitamin C as well.
The antioxidant vitamin C works to shield your cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, which are chemicals your body produces as it breaks down food, is exposed to tobacco smoke, or is exposed to radiation from the sun, X-rays, or other sources. Heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses could be caused by free radicals. Additionally, iron storage and absorption are aided by vitamin C.
Because your body doesn't produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach. Vitamin C is also available as an oral supplement, typically in the form of capsules and chewable tablets.
WHAT IS VITAMIN C GOOD FOR?
Injections of vitamin C soothe the stomach by getting the vitamin directly into the blood. Additionally, compared to the amount absorbed from oral vitamin C intake, vitamin C shots assist our body in absorbing a larger concentration of vitamin C. Studies have shown that vitamin C supplements can aid in fat burning and weight loss, but no choice should be made without first visiting a healthcare provider.
