Vitamin C is very important to human health. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is an essential nutrient found mainly in fruits and vegetables. The body requires Vitamin C to form and maintain bones, blood vessels, and skin. The human body cannot store Vitamin C, and so the body soon depletes itself if fresh supplies are not consumed daily.
There are many professional advocates of large doses of Vitamin C, including two-time Nobel Prize laureate Linus Pauling. Vitamin C is widely recognized for its vital role in human immunity. Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health. Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism, hormone synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. Vitamin C is also a highly useful antioxidant that can help protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals, and is important for the restoration of other antioxidants, such as Vitamin E.
