Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that works within the body as an antioxidant, defending the body's cells against damaging free radicals. This action keeps the immune system strong to fight off illness. Antioxidants also protect the cells of the body's organs, including the skin -- vitamin C can help prevent and/or correct the visible signs of aging like wrinkles and brown spots while also promoting wound healing. Vitamin C is also helpful in maintaining the proper blood pressure ratio.
