VITAMIN C BOOSTERS
Vitamin C is also known as Ascorbic acid and has several important functions. These functions help to protect cells and keep them healthy and maintain healthy skin, blood vessels, bone and cartilage. It also enables the absorption of iron so anyone deficient in iron should also up their vitamin C intake. Our body uses Vitamin C to help heal injuries to our skin by forming collagen as collagen helps to close wounds and create scar tissue.
While natural sources of Vitamin C can be obtained through our diet, as we age we absorb less from diet alone. It is essential to keep your Vitamin C levels topped up. High Vitamin C foods include peppers, brussels sprouts, broccoli, oranges and orange juice.
