It acts as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals and reduce the risk of inflammation and disease. The body also uses vitamin C to synthesize important compounds such as collagen, a type of structural protein that forms connective tissue and helps in wound healing, keeps the skin healthy and smooth, and much more. Vitamin C is also needed for the production of other compounds, such as L-carnitine and neurotransmitters. Ongoing research has discovered a variety of potential vitamin C benefits and has found that getting enough of the vitamin in your diet can improve skin health, increase immunity and even protect against certain other bodily conditions.
