How does it work?

Vitamin C is an important vitamin and antioxidant that the body uses to keep you strong and healthy. Vitamin C is used in the maintenance of bones, muscle, and blood vessels. Vitamin C also assists in the formation of collagen and helps the body absorb iron. In general, vitamin C is safe to take when ingested through food sources such as fruits and vegetables. For most people, taking vitamin C supplements in the recommended amounts is also safe. The recommended daily allowance is 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women. High doses of vitamin C (greater than 2,000 milligrams per day for adults) may cause kidney stones, nausea, and diarrhea.
 
Vitamin C (vitamin C) occurs naturally in foods such as citrus fruit, tomatoes, potatoes, and leafy vegetables. Vitamin C is important for bones and connective tissues, muscles, and blood vessels. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron, which is needed for red blood cell production. Vitamin C is used to treat and prevent vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
 
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an essential vitamin that is well known for its effects on the immune system. Ascorbic acid is naturally sour and is commonly used in candy to add a sour taste. When it is ingested, it goes to work circulating through all of the watery areas of the human body (once it has been absorbed into the intestines, of course). From there, ascorbic acid may help in the fortification of collagen while acting as an antioxidant during the trip.† It may also assist in the repair of damaged tissue and in helping to maintain healthy levels of collagen in already healthy individuals.† Vitamin C also has a host of other general uses.
