Vitamin C for cartilage and immune system
One task of vitamin C is to help build up the body's cartilage and bone tissue. Vitamin C is needed for collagen to form. Collagen, in turn, is what builds up our supporting tissue. Collagen formation is thus important for a number of functions in the body, such as the blood vessels, bone structure, and normal function of the skin. In addition, foods or supplements with vitamin C are recommended when you take iron, as vitamin C improves the body's ability to absorb the iron.
Vitamin C is also known for its important task of contributing to normal function of the immune system. A well-functioning immune system is more resistant to diseases such as persistent colds. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that counteracts the free radicals that break down the body. Every day, the body is affected by oxidative stress through external factors and, over time, our own immune system breaks down. Antioxidants help counteract free radicals and are present in a variety of substances.
