Vitamin C also know as L-ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that is found naturally in some foods and can be taken as a dietary supplement. Since humans cannot synthesize vitamin C endogenously, it is considered to be an “essential” nutrient.
The body requires vitamin C for the biosynthesis of L-carnitine, collagen, and some important neurotransmitters – hormones critical to the nervous system. Vitamin C is also required to metabolise proteins, synthesize collagen for wound healing, and detoxify the body through its role as a physiological antioxidant.
