Vitamin C is required for the support and maintenance of tissues in all parts of your body. It is necessary for the healthy natural formation of collagen, an important protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is essential for the supporting the body and for the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Vitamin E and beta-carotene are two other well-known antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that help support and maintain health and help maintain a youthful appearance.
Sufficient Vitamin C intake can help support and maintain:
- Healthy hair, skin and nails.
- Healthy teeth and gums.
- Proper immune function.
- Healthy muscles and joints
- A healthy heart and cardiovascular system.
The body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. It is therefore important to include plenty of vitamin C containing foods in your daily diet or as a supplement for guaranteed, measurable, dosage.
Rosehips are particularly high in Vitamin C, with about 1700-2000 mg per 100 g in the dried product, one of the richest plant sources available. It also contains Vitamins A, D and E as well as antioxidant flavonoids.
