Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin. It dissolves in water and is delivered to the body’s tissues but is not well stored, so it has to be taken daily through food or supplements. Our bodies don’t make vitamin C, but we need it for immune function, bone structure, iron absorption and healthy skin and hair.

Citrus bioflavonoids are biologically active members of a group of plant-derived polyphenolic compounds. They act synergistically with vitamin to neutralize free radicals. They may promote immune, cognitive and joint health.
GOOD FOR SKIN & HAIR HEALTH
The primary function of the skin is to act as a barrier against environmental factors and its unique structure reflects this. Supplementation with vitamin C has been correlated with decreased risk of dry skin. High levels of vitamin C in the body appear to increase collagen synthesis and decrease inflammatory responses at the site of the wound. Dietary vitamin C may also provide photoprotection.
The free radicals which get accumulated on your hair due to the environmental pollutants makes hair dry, weak, and brittle. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help fight free radicals that may damage your hair follicles, the collagen synthesis not only benefits your skin but your hair and scalp as well, and helps maintain healthy hair structure.
Yes, vitamin C improves absorption of non-heme iron, the type of iron found in plant foods such as leafy greens. Non-heme iron is not directly available for absorption. Vitamin C significantly increases absorption of this type of iron by converting iron into a more easily absorbed form. Vitamin C supplementation is especially beneficial for vegetarians and vegans, who might naturally have a lower amount of iron consumption in their diet.
VITAMIN C SUPPLEMENTS ARE A GREAT WAY TO TOP UP ON VITAMIN C
An interesting fact about vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is that vitamin C in food is chemically identical to vitamin C in supplements.
