Commonly known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C occurs naturally in foods such as citrus fruit, tomatoes, potatoes, and leafy vegetables. Vitamin C is an antioxidant nutrient that contributes to the protection of normal cells from potentially harmful chemicals produced by normal body processes. As a water-soluble nutrient, vitamin C supplies in the body are used up quicker under stress and during periods of high activity leading to a lowering of immune function and increased incidence of infections. Low levels are also associated with an increased risk of stroke and heart disease. Vitamin C plays a big role in boosting the immune system to fight off infections.
