Vitamin C

WHAT IS IT?

Vitamin C is the same as ascorbic acid and dissolves in water. This antioxidant nutrient is involved in over 300 different tissues or processes in the human body. Vitamin C is a necessary nutrient for the production of collagen. It improves the effectiveness of other antioxidants such as vitamin E. Our bodies need vitamin C in order for folic acid and iron to work properly. Vitamin C deficiency causes scurvy, with symptoms of anemia, bruising, fatigue, loose teeth, and soreness. Not getting enough vitamin C can even put you in a bad mood!

Vitamin C is not stored and isn't manufactured in the body — which means you have to get it from your diet or supplements. Lots of fruits and vegetables contain vitamin C, such as acerola, alfalfa, apples, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, cranberries and cranberry juice, guava, kiwi, lemon, lime, lycium fruit, mango, oranges and orange juice, papaya, parsley, potatoes, red and black dates, strawberries, tea, and tomatoes. Besides turmeric, herbs and spices that contain vitamin C include absinthe, allspice, basil, bilberry, Cherokee rosehip, chickweed, coriander, dandelion, fenugreek, gotu kola, hawthorn, juniper berries, marjoram, nettle, purslane, rose hips, St. John's wort, bee pollen, royal jelly, almonds, and honey also contain vitamin C.

Foods, spices, and herbs that contain vitamin C could help cancer, keep your nails healthy, reduce stress, and help treat cellulite and thinning hair.
