Daily vitamin C has long been associated with good health. Science now provides us with a whole list of benefits derived from this most famous of all vitamins:
- It is a powerful antioxidant, forming part of the body’s defense system against the harmful effects of free radicals.
- It is a beneficial supplement for the skin, as it supports the formation of intercellular collagen
- It is necessary for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue.
Vitamin C is water soluble, and is secreted from the body. Since humans are among the few animals that are unable to make their own vitamin C, we must therefore get it from our food, drinks, and supplements, such as Forever Active-C®.
The need for adequate levels of vitamin C is very evident. Science reports that one cigarette destroys 25mg of vitamin C. Stress, medication and environmental factors all heavily deplete the body of this vitamin. A deficiency can result in broken capillaries and bleeding gums.
