Among vitamins, essential substances for normal functioning of the body, one of the most appreciated is certainly vitamin C.
One of the first signs of vitamin C deficiency in the body is weakened immunity and susceptibility to flu and colds. Chronic deficiency of vitamin C causes scurvy. The bones become fragile, the joints become swollen, the dental flesh is bloated and bleeding. Anemia is also occurring. The surplus of vitamin C is removed from the body by urine.
Vitamin C is not synthesized in the human body, so it is necessary to enter it from food sources or through dietary supplements.
Vitamin C contributes to protecting the cells from oxidative stress, contributes to fatigue reduction, exhaustion, and increases iron absorption.
Vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous and immune system and contributes to the normal energy metabolism.
Vitamin C contributes to the creation of collagen for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, skin, gums, teeth, cartilage

Our body can fight oxidative stress and free radicals by its own defense systems, but exaggerated exposure to polluted air, sun, bad nutrition, smoking, alcohol, and natural aging processes kicks out our body from balance. Because of that, our body has an increased need for antioxidants intake.
