A Natural Antioxidant Vitamin C
A natural antioxidant, vitamin C protects your body from damage from free radicals produced as your body breaks down food and toxins such as radiation and exhaust fumes. Excess exposure to free radicals or toxins can speed up the aging process as well as potentially cause cell death and damage to your DNA. In turn, this increases your risk of developing cancer or heart disease. Used in the production of collagen, Vitamin C helps maintain skin, tendon, ligament, blood vessel, cartilage, bones and teeth. It also helps with scar tissue production.
