Vitamin C is an antioxidant that beneﬁts the process of skin healing, as well as the formation of blood vessels, cartilage & muscles. It also assists the immune system with the production of white blood cells, ultimately helping cells to work properly to ﬁght infection. Our bodies need the right vitamins and minerals to ﬁght diseases.
Our body does not produce Vitamin C so where can we get our Vitamin C? We have many forms of access including citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, and spinach. You should not have more than 2,000 mg of Vitamin C in a single day and too much Vitamin C can increase the risk of developing kidney stones. Overall, a balanced diet is key to maintaining healthy Vitamin C levels.
