Vitamin C: A water soluble white crystalline vitamin.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is best known for its infection fighting properties (popular as a remedy for flu's and colds) but it plays two other vital roles in the body: it is crucial in the formation of collagen (the protein that is responsible for strong joints and bones as well as a healthy skin) and it plays a role in the formation of red blood cells.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals. It is used by many to improve fertility as it is believed to protect genetic substances due to its antioxidant properties and improves sperm health quality and production.

Natural sources of vitamin c is most berries, tomatoes, citrus fruit and fresh green leafy vegetables.

Collagen: Not a constituent of a plant or other natural remedy this substance is so essential to the body that it warrants description.

Collagen is a fibrous protein that forms the fibers of skin, tendons ligaments and bones. This fibrous "mat" or collage is responsible for the strength of teeth and bones, strength of cell walls and the underlying structural make-up of the skin. Collagen makes up almost a third of all protein in the body.

With age (assisted by sun-damage) the collagen fibers in the skin become rigid and the body gradually loses its ability to repair or rejuvenate these collagen fibers (as a result of a weakening, hardening or even breakdown of the very fine capillaries that feed the skin).
