Vitamin C offers a wide range of support for the human body. It is an effective antioxidant and free radical scavenger that supports cellular health. It promotes the body’s defence system by enhancing white blood cell function and activity, and increasing interferon levels, antibody responses and secretion of thymic hormones. Furthermore, this antioxidant has histamine-lowering properties and increases lymphocyte formation. It is essential for the formation and maintenance of intercellular ground substance and collagen, which are important for bone health. As an integral collagen cofactor, vitamin C also has a role in wound healing.
