What Is Vitamin C?
It’s often talked about, but not often understood, what vitamin C is and what it does. These are some fast facts about the vital nutrient:
- Vitamin C isn’t produced by the body, meaning it must be absorbed from your daily diet.
- Several fruits and vegetables are naturally rich in this vitamin – not just oranges!
- It’s water-soluble and well-known for its ability to support the body’s natural defenses.
