Vitamin C is one of life’s most important nutrients and is a powerful antioxidant. It’s one of your body’s best defences against excess free radicals caused by stress, smoking and pollution. Since your body cannot make or store Vitamin C, you need to get your supply from your diet daily. Fresh fruit and vegetables are particularly good sources of Vitamin C, but it can easily be destroyed by cooking, freezing or processing. That’s why health conscious people often choose to supplement their diet with Vitamin C tablets or capsules - every day of the year.
