Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid is an essential nutrient for humans, a large number of higher primate species, a small number of other mammalian species (notably guinea pigs and bats), a few species of birds, and some fish. Ascorbate (an ion of ascorbic acid) is required for a range of essential metabolic reactions in all animals and plants. It is made internally by almost all organisms, humans being the notable exception. Since the body cannot produce Vitamin C, so it must be supplied by our diet or supplements.
Vitamin C is consumed in supplemental form by millions of people across the world for it's antioxidant properties, which are well documented in medical research. Vitamin C provides superior antioxidant support, plays an important role in supporting immune function, promotes iron absorption, is beneficial for the health of joints, promotes heart and circulatory health and is involved in collagen formation, which is important for healthy nails, skin and hair.

It is also important for tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function and healthy gums.
