Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that your body cannot produce or store, to maintain healthy levels your body must absorb Vitamin C from either your diet or supplements on a daily basis. Vitamin C plays many roles in supporting the health of your body, including supporting the immune system. Vitamin C also contributes to the healthy formation of collagen, which in turn helps to support the normal functioning of your bones, blood vessels, gums and skin.
A balanced diet, rich in food such as oranges, spinach, tomatoes, kiwi or kale is a great way to maintain healthy Vitamin C levels. It can sometimes be difficult to regularly make the right dietary choices that will ensure your body is provided with the correct levels of the nutrients, which is where supplements can be helpful by providing a convenient nutritional ‘top up’.
