Ascorbic Acid, better known as Vitamin C, is a water soluble antioxidant vitamin that is important to the immune system, to forming collagen, and which aids in the absorption of iron.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy.
Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients available. The benefits include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving with your favorite beverage 1-2 times daily, or as directed by your physician.
