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

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).
