It’s not always obvious where your vitamins are coming from and what glorious things they’re doing for our bodies. We know they’re good, but in what ways? And what do we need to eat to benefit from them?
By following along, we’ll help to demystify the story of each vitamin one-by-one, helping you on your path to a more nutritious, vitamin-rich diet with Spicewell.
Vitamin C: Ascorbic Acid
Many of us remember Vitamin C as a kid — little orange gummies with smiley faces. Ah, those were the days… But what’s so special about Vitamin C? And is it important for adults as it is for kids?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is good for your body in the same way that weekends and holidays allow your body to decompress, feel good, and heal the wounds of everyday life!
Firstly, this super antioxidant is incredible at supporting the body’s immune system. Including vitamin C in your diet will help your body absorb iron from plant-based foods, helping your immune system to protect the body from disease. And if that wasn’t enough…
Vitamin C allows the body to form collagen, the protein behind beautiful skin and healthy joints. Collagen also aids connective tissue repair and wound healing — hence why it’s great for kids, but also active adults, or anyone prone to injury.
Active adults also need energy to stay active. Guess what? Vitamin C helps transport and breakdown fatty acids so the body can generate energy. It’s also crucial for maintaining healthy bones and teeth.
Sounds like vitamin C is really important. That’s because it is!
