Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, it is a vitamin found in various foods and cannot be made by the human body so is an essential part of the diet. It is needed for the health and repair of various tissues in your body, including skin, bone, teeth and cartilage. It is required for the functioning of several enzymes and is important for immune system function. It also functions as an antioxidant.
 
Vitamin C keeps the cells healthy and helps to protect them and is vital in the maintenance of healthy skin, bones, cartilage and blood vessels.
Persistent lack of vitamin C in your diet can lead to a condition called scurvy. Symptoms of scurvy include easy bruising, easy bleeding and joint and muscle pains. Vitamin C deficiency can be treated with a course of vitamin injections.
There are certain groups of people who are more at risk of vitamin C deficiency.
They include:
  • People dependent on drugs and/or alcohol who may not have a healthy, balanced diet.
  • People who go on very restrictive diets.
