What is Vitamin C? In simple terms, Vitamin C is an essential beneficial nutrient that helps manufacture compounds that are vital to maintain certain chemical activity within the body. Pure vitamin C is water soluble, meaning that your body cannot store it, hence vitamin C is needed on a daily basis. Vitamin C is also known as Ascorbic Acid, which is a general term for Vitamin C, but also refers to pure vitamin C (single entity Ascorbic Acid) that is not bound to any other compound. What does Vitamin C do? We need vitamin C to aid growth and repair tissues in every part of the body. Ascorbic acid is needed to heal wounds and for maintaining and repairing teeth and bones. Another vital role vitamin C plays is in helping with the production of collagen proteins. These aid the manufacture of skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments and blood vessels. Vitamin C is widely known as an antioxidant. A build up of free radicals over a prolonged period of time may add to the ageing process and unwanted health conditions. Antioxidants can block damage caused by free radicals. Ascorbic acid also assists the body to absorb iron. Health Leads supplement formula Each capsule is crammed full with 600mg of 100% pure ascorbic acid, free from any additives. Many supplement manufacturers use other forms of vitamin C that are bound to other compounds. For example, buffered vitamin C is bound to calcium, magnesium, or potassium. We believe that pure ascorbic acid is the best form of oral vitamin C supplementation.
