The key nutrient for the stability of blood vessels, the heart, and all other organs in the body, vitamin C plays crucial roles in the maintenance of health and prevention of disease. Responsible for the optimum production and function of collagen, elastin, and other connective tissue molecules that give stability to our body and its blood vessels, vitamin C is vital for ensuring proper wound healing.
Vitamin C is also the most important antioxidant in the body, as well as being a cofactor for a series of biological catalysts (enzymes) that are important for the proper metabolism of cholesterol, triglycerides, and other cardiovascular risk factors. It is also an essential energy molecule that is needed to recharge energy carriers inside the body’s cells.
