Vitamin C: Sources, benefits & deficiency

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is important for many functions in the body. Although it takes pride of place in many immune-boosting supplements, its effect on our health goes far beyond preventing seasonal sniffles. Vitamin C is a complex and powerful nutrient that is essential for our bodies to grow and thrive. 

What’s more, scientists are still uncovering the full potential of vitamin C when it comes to preventing chronic diseases. What may come as a surprise to many is that they are also not entirely sure whether it can cure the common cold. Although it has become a common practice to pop vitamin C supplements to fight off respiratory infections, there is surprisingly little evidence that it actually works. But that doesn’t mean vitamin C isn’t good for our immune system. In fact, quite the opposite.
