What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, discovered in 1930 by Hungarian researcher Albert Szent-Györgyi. Being water-soluble means that this vitamin must be supplied to the body every day, since any extra is lost in the urine. Our main source is from fruits and vegetables. A lack of Vitamin C produces the ailment known as scurvy, which was a frequent complaint among sailors until sources of Vitamin C began to be carried on board. Since one of these onboard sources was limes, British sailors have sometimes been called “Limeys.”

Benefits of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, fighting oxidative stress, and reduces tiredness or fatigue.  It also plays an essential part in:

  • Immunity
  • Connective tissues (such as blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth)
  • Absorption of iron.
  • Energy metabolism
  • The nervous system
