About Vitamin C

  • While most animals can produce vitamin C in their bodies, humans and monkeys, etc. cannot produce it in their bodies.
  • A useful source of vitamin C for times when your body needs a large supply: to recover from physical fatigue, during pregnancy/lactation, loss of strength during and after illness, or as a daily supplement for the elderly.
  • The action of vitamin C to relieve blotches, freckles, etc. is well known. Vitamin C is also necessary for producing collagen that connects cells, strengthens vascular walls and prevents bleeding of the gums and bleeding of the nose.
  • Since vitamin C is soluble in water, only a small amount is accumulated in the body.
