Vitamin C, 500 mg- 100 ea
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) may be used to prevent low body levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Ascorbic acid is needed to maintain the health of skin, cartilage, teeth, and blood vessels, and to promote proper bone growth. Most people who eat a normal diet do not need extra ascorbic acid.
Vitamin C deficiency may occur in certain health conditions (e.g., poor nutrition, diet lacking citrus fruit/vegetables, alcoholism). Serious ascorbic acid deficiency may cause a condition called scurvy, resulting in bleeding problems, tooth loss, and heart problems, among others.
Ascorbic acid is also used to help preserve the health of body cells (as an antioxidant).
