VEGAN VITAMIN C - All Natural
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin with a role in the formation of collagen, which is an important constituent of bones, muscle, cartilage and blood vessels. It is also involved in the growth and repair of the important tissues and organs in the body. This vitamin is not stored in the body and some of the main sources of Vitamin C include fruits and vegetables. High quality supplements, such as Vegan Vitamin C is another potent source of Vitamin C.
Severe Deficiency of Vitamin C in the body causes scurvy, which is a disease that affects the gums, skin, cartilage and other collagen-containing tissues. Individual who have scurvy feel weak and tired and, suffer from aches in their joints and muscles. It is also characterized by bleeding under the skin and gums loosening of the teeth, dry and scaly skin, anemia (due to low absorption of iron) and infections that take a lot of time to heal. These symptoms disappear after the individuals start taking the adequate amount of Vitamin C (natural or supplements) in their diet.
