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.
