How it works Vitamin C is involved in hundreds of biological processes, the most important being in the manufacture of collagen, the major protein in the body. Collagen is a structural protein found in tissue, cartilage and tendons, and it helps to support blood vessels.
Due to its structural role in collagen synthesis vitamin C is necessary for wound repair, healthy gums, and prevention of bruising and to protect against infection. Vitamin C is water-soluble and only small amounts are stored in the body after it is absorbed from the intestine. It is an antioxidant in water, and therefore helps to neutralise potentially harmful reactions in the blood and the watery fluid inside and outside the bodys cells.
