Top 10 Richest Vitamin C Food

About Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to produce own Vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain Vitamin C through our diet.

Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Your body needs Vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. On the other hand, it is also essential for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
