What you need to know of Vitamin C

Vitamin C facts

Vitamin C is one of the most easily recognisable vitamins and for good reason – it has a vital role to play in supporting good health and wellbeing.


And because it’s a water-soluble vitamin, your body doesn’t store it, which means it’s important to consume a certain amount of vitamin C in your diet.


But do you know which foods pack the biggest punch? And exactly what vitamin C does?


Here’s what you need to know.

What are the benefits of vitamin C?

As you probably already know, vitamin C is important for helping the immune system and may help reduce the duration and severity of a cold.


On top of that, other vitamin C benefits include the fact that it supports wound healing, blood vessel health and the formation of collagen, a protein that’s responsible for skin strength.


Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant and improves the absorption of the type of iron that’s found in plant-based foods like green leafy vegetables, legumes, almonds, quinoa and wholemeal bread. So, eating a vitamin-C rich food alongside any of those is a smart move.
