About Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C acts on melanin in the skin and is effective in reducing blotches and freckles, and pigmentation due to sunlight or rash.
  • Vitamin C is necessary to produce collagen that connects each cell. Collagen strengthens the blood vessel walls and prevents bleeding of the gums and nose.
