Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble antioxidant.  Antioxidants help to prevent cellular damage that is caused by oxidative stress (free radicals).

Vitamin C is also instrumental in the growth and repair of tissues throughout the body, and is needed for wound healing, as well as repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.

The body cannot make Vitamin C and so it is essential to get it from the diet.  Holistic health professionals recommend that individuals eat foods rich in Vitamin C (as opposed to taking supplements) if possible.

Fortunately, it is easy to get the recommended daily requirement from common fruits and vegetables that are readily available in most neighborhood supermarkets.  Selecting and purchasing produce that is organic, locally grown and seasonal helps to ensure the highest nutrient content.
