Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is vital to your health. A few of the roles it plays in your body include:
- It helps the immune system to fight off disease and neutralize free radicals.
- It’s used to make collagen and heal wounds.
- Cells use it to reproduce and create new cells.
In many such functions, Vitamin C works in conjunction with the sulfur compound methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). That is why many experts recommend taking the two supplements together. It is recommended that you take at least 1/2 (one half) as much Vitamin C as MSM. For example, if you are taking 2000 mg of MSM, you should take a minimum of 1000 mg of Vitamin C for the two supplements to have maximum effect.
