Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, water-soluble crystalline substance with strong reducing properties. It is also an important antioxidant in the human body. Interestingly, ascorbic acid is essential only for humans and a few other primates, as other mammals are capable of biosynthesizing it.

Vitamin C contributes to:

  • The maintenance of normal immune system function during and after intense physical exercise
  • Normal collagen formation
  • Normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth
  • Normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Normal nervous system function
  • Normal psychological function
  • Normal immune system function
  • The protection of cells from oxidative stress
  • Regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
  • Increased absorption of iron
